I have an Eska 7.5 and the engine runs great. When I took the cover off everything looked brand new. My prop doesn't turn when its in the water. I first took the bottom off the lower unit and discovered that when the prop turns the shaft going up also turns. I then discovered that the shift arm has a broken linkage because everything fell out when I dropped the bottom.
I need to get at the shifter arm and linkage and the only way I can see to do that is to seperate the power head from the lower unit. I have removed all of the (6) funky star type bolts holding them together but I can get them apart.
I can see a small gap but it seams like something is still holding them together. I can not figure out what it is or how to free it up.
Any guidance is greatly appreciated.
