      I decided today to replace the water pump and impeller in my 1978 Evinrude 70Hp outboard. I have replaced these before in other makes of outboards, and didnt forsee any problems, I removed all the bolts,(even the hidden one) and the lower unit will not drop, it looks like the shifting arm/shaft is not disengaging and is holding the unit up. What do I do?

    Thanks in advance.
