    I am changing the water pump on my 25 hp Johnson 2 stroke and have run into a problem.  I have the lower unit dropped but the water pump housing is caught above the nut that attaches the upper and lower shift linkage.  Where do I go from here? I have the side gear selector handle removed, but it appears that I have to disconnect the linkage by the power head as well??  Is this right? If so, do I drop out the entire shift rod through the bottom?  I feel like I am missing something. 

    Any advise would be great, or if anyone in jax wants to come by and help!? 6 pack and $50 ;) Justin
