THe impeller is still flexible. It is "bent" over but snug.
Replacing it anyway.

Sholdn't it just slide off? Am I missing a bolt or something?
Anode.. gone. 2 top bolt, 2 bottem.. gone. One on the front by shifter... done..
WTF >???
Theres one bolt on top in the back two on the side then upfront there 2 nuts underneath then remove the Anode and theres one under neath that.

Alot of times they get a little coroded so you can take the 2 side nuts and add one or two flat washer ontop of the nut and start to loosen them. What will happen is the nut will hit the roof of the housing and you will force it off. loosen up boths side evenenly, if it still doesnt come off let me know there is other ways

Thanks TD... but look above. >> DONE..
"""">>>>> "Thanks guys. Lower unit is off. Had to use a scraper to wedge it off and gently pry it off bit by bit. Small corrosion made it stick.
New problem. Impeller is great. Motor heating up a bit. What's my next possible couse" <<<<<<

Don't know you TD,, read some of the threads about a "TD'... same guy ??? I had a few hundred riding on the "No Go" bet...

I aclty didn't even see his response until I just read your post. No go bet? I showed up nobody else did. This been going on for 3 years, it first started I did not even have the drive then the drive was real then it was you cant go 70 mph then 80 mph so on and so forth. The Bs never stops. All I will say is I would not bet against me. The boat is real

TD.. !!! I don't know what all that means... or what exactly you are trying to say.. (I guess it is the same TD) Thanks for your Alpha 1 input. Late but thanks anyways.
For the rest I have no clue what your are talking about. There was a challange made.. Money was put up.. you pooped out.. That's it.
