"I also have a 1989 force 50 that is difficult to turn. The steering is fine, the engine has been getting harder to turn each year. This year it is almost immovable. It doesn't seem like grease is flowing onto the swivel pin. Is it possible to separate the engine from the pin so I can clean and re-lubricate the pin. Where could I get a manual?"
