A view from the left side of the engine (when viewed from inside the boat). You will need to remove the knuckle that held the linkage in the previous picture. What you will be left with is just a rod with a hold in the end. This rod goes down in to the bottom end (gear case). When it is moved up/down by the arm you just removed it changes the gears. You are now ready to take unbolt and remove the entire bottom end.
