Hello all! I'm down to removing the tilt tube from my outboard in order to get this thing back in the water. I've heard that I will need to lift the motor a bit to tap it out. Any advice from experience will be very helpful! The steering ram is corroded in the tube and not coming out. I am thinking I will have to cut the cable where it goes into the tilt tube and tap it out in the direction of the the ram (which is currently sticking out about halfway). The boat is a 2005 Carolina Skiff J16 and the motor is a 2005 Johnson 30 HP 2 Stroke.
