    Help with pump removal on '01 GPR

    Am I missing something? I've pulled all of the bolts between the transom plate and the impeller housing, removed the ride plate, pulled the bolts on the impeller duct, removed the bolts on the bearing housing. I can't get the pump to pull out more than 1/4" and that is tough to get. The shaft wasn't dry or corroded under the thru-hull hose, even a little greasy. Is there a trick I'm missing? I thought it should just pull straight out at this point?
    Thanks!

    I spent an hour doing that last night. At one point I had pryed it out about 3/4" only to realize that I'm bowing the bulkhead to the rear that much.

    +1 or there are tabs to use a prybar or flat head screwdriver.

    Ziggy......make sure the splines on the shaft are clean when you put the pump back in. Use a little waterproof grease on the splines before assembly.

    HEAT! Its can be your best friend if you use it properly. I use this torch for bolts before i take them off and I used it on pumps to help seperate the adhesive that was causing your problems with it not coming off. You dont need much just about 10 seconds of heating.

    Thanks, but the splines were trashed. That's why it wouldn't come apart.
