"I have a 2 stroke Tohatsu 19 horse which I believe is a 1991 motor. I am trying to replace the impeller but I am having a very hard time removing the lower unit. I have removed the 4 obvious nuts holding the housing in place, and I have disconnected the shift rod coupler, but the lower unit does not want to budge. Am I missing something? I have tried tapping it with a block of wood and a hammer. I have tried a pry bar. Before I really put some muscle into it and break something, can someone give me some advice?"

"19 Hp? The 30's and below only have the leg bolts and shift coupler holding them on. Chances are the drive shaft is stuck up in the crankshaft due to lack of maintenance. All you can do is pry, wait and pray."
