I'm trying to change the gasket between the impellor housing and the lower unit. I also would like to change the seals on the actual drive shaft, where they meet the impellor housing.
As you can see from the pics, I can lift the impellor housing up about 1/4" before it stops and can't go further. It can spin freely on the axis of the drive shaft, however it appears that the drive shaft is what is blocking it from actually coming off. Do I need to remove the driveshaft to get the housing off? If so, how do I remove it, and how do I get the seals off the driveshaft where it meets the housing?
Thx for any help!
