Question about Boating
I bought a boat with a 25hp Evinrude that appears to have not been maintained. I want to replace the water pump and maybe some other seals, but cannot get it to drop. I've squirted PB Blaster on the main bolt for weeks and still not budging. Hitting it with large rubber mallet is getting me nowhere. Saw a YouTube where the guy stood his motor upside down and pumped an entire can of degreaser into the housing to free up a stuck drive shaft spline. I also had a guy tell me that I needed to heat the bolt area really hot, but I only have a propane torch, no acetylene. Any ideas?

You could take off the lower unit and leave the boat home. All they need is the bottom. The propshaft seal can be cut from fishing line. There should be another seal on the shift assembly and a third on the powershaft. Some you could do, but the shop can pressure test before and replace only what you need. Then pressure test after the repair to verify it seals.
