Trying to replace a water pump in my 1986 60 hp Johnson and canít get the lower unit to drop down. I thought that the shift rod linkage should be reachable when the lower unit drops down an inch. But I canít seem to find it. This was discussed with a Mercury on
http://continuouswave.com/ubb/Forum3/HTML/001668.html, and it is mentioned that the separation is under the cowl, but still canít find it. Please advise

By any chance is your shift rod linkage inside the water pickup screen,....I was admiring a freinds late 90's models Johnson the other day and he showed me where you disconnected the shift linkage inside the water pickup screen,......You remove two screws on either side,...removed the screens from the lower unit and inside was cotter key,.....See if its there on yours ,...if not maybe someone with more expeirance can help!

Probably under the carb or behind it. If you CAN'T find it you should either A) have a manual or B) take it to someone who can.
