Re: Impeller replacement Merc 5hp

OK - thanks everyone for the useful comments. Impeller has been replaced - not difficult at all!

But now I am having trouble re-inserting the lower unit back into the drive shaft housing. Unit will go in until it feels like the drive shaft is bumping up against something - about 3" short. So the drive shaft is not going in enough. Gear shift is in reverse.

Any ideas on what might be the problem and how to solve it would be greatly appreciated!

cheers - jballou
