Mercury Outboard pump question
Any of you guys familiar with the water pumps on the small older mercs. Mine is 7.5 hp, 1976 vintage.
Question is, after the top of the pump and impeller is removed, your left with the lower housing and the stainless steel bowl within it. I understand the bowl comes out but how? there is nothing to grab it with. The other issue is I can't get the lower housing off, it looks like it should just pry up but won't budge. I need to replace entire assembly.
