Hi there I have just purchased a 50hp johnson model 50ESL73R. It has a seized gearbox of which I cannot figure out how to remove the prop shaft I presume the housing has to be removed with a special tool Being as I live in England marine workshops are hard to find. I was wondering if anything can be made up to remove the housing or am i going in the wrong direction as to how to remove it. I am awaiting the manual for this which is another nightmare to get hold of over here. Also would appreciate if anyone knows of a company that posts Johnson parts overseas. Many thanks Nick.
