I am rebuilding a little 16' Bass Tracker. Everything is almost done execpt changing oil in the lower unit and replacing the water pump on the 50 HP Merc. I have changed several water pumps, but I can't find where to seperate the shifting rod that runs vertically. I think it shifts differently than a larger motor and just splines into the shifter on the engine. Any suggestions?

More than likely it is splinned just above the cavitation plate might have a pin.. What year

Oops, sorry, thought I put that in. It's a 1980 model.

I bought this old boat from my son and he thinks he remembers just what you said. He thinks it's splined and just drops down with no pins. Maybe the pin is gone,
