    Does anyone have a lower unit they would like to trade, I have a short shaft but need a long shaft?  or a kit they want to sell. Is this an easy job?

    Thanks

    Easy? Depends on the corrosion factor of the steel bolt threads and aluminum casting threads.
    Other than that you need the long mid section, long driveshaft, long water tube and long shift rod.
    30 year old parts outboard is going to be hard to find in good condition, most are well worn at that age.
