    Default 2007 Merc Sea Pro 25 - question on how to disconnect shift linkage

    Hey so ive watched a couple of videos on how to disconnect the shift linkage on an outboard so I can replace the water pump. One showed a nut connecting the linkage, another showed a plastic and metal clip, my motor has neither. All i can see is a connector with two small pins right above the lower unit. Is this where I disconnect the linkage? I banged out the top pin but the linkage still wont come apart. Do i need to bang out the bottom one too or am I missing something?

    For some reason the edit button has disappeared.

    The pin i knocked out is the one you can see in the picture and then there is another one below it that you can see when you shift the transmission and the rod comes up.

    Did you try putting it in forward or reverse to see if you get the disconnect link to become visible?

    Yes. The pic is in neutral. If I push it down the connection disappears, if I pull it up there is just another pin like the one in the pic about 3/4" below that one

    Just remember that the lower unit must be in forward when you assemble it again ....
