    you punch in a small 1/8 hole with a drill but you just punch in DO NOT GO FURTHER then you take a small nail or pick and pry it out…. very easy job

    when done…. install the new plug what I do is take a squarehead (Robertson ) screwdriver #2 and punch the center (dome) of the plug with a light tap enough to mark it

    then I apply clear fingernail polish to seal the joint

    see utube on doing a carb on a 9.5 at 5:22 min. same principle

    Got it back together .. Cleaned the tank and screen .. Really gunked up …
    Used some 16-1 ratio fuel I had on hand . I assume 24-1 is correct for this motor ..
    Only ran it a minute . I want to check/replace water pump/impeller .. Any tips on dropping the lower unit other than taking the bolts out and dropping ?

    Ordering stuff for lower unit .
    Item 23 is not present on my motor . I assume that seals the connection to the water tube and I should order it.
    Also trying to get the upper screw out of the lower gear casing . Is it ok to use heat there to try and break loose ? The end of the exhaust is broken . Will this hurt anything to run it like that ?

    Thanks Dave . I guess it’s just the lower unit casing . I don’t have the piece that is broken off to try and repair .
    Still struggling to get that upper screw out of the gear case . Would it be ok to put some heat on it ? Are there any rubber parts inside that might melt If I did ?

    When I took the drain plugs out of LU a little water came out .
    Which seals would be the usual suspects for water leaks . A visual inspection looks like
    2 seals . The small one where the shaft exits the hub and a large one that fits in the hub .
    They both look pretty good shape from what I can tell ..
