Hey Guys - I'm trying to remove the lower unit on my 2002 Johnson 25 HP. I've disconnected the shift linkage but the top brass screw is hanging up when I try to lower it.
Any ideas on what I need to do or how to get that top brass screw off

There is a plastic keeper on it. Gotta take it off. Its kind of a pain in the ass. Also make sure you have the nut off on the front of the lower unit.

that brass screw has to be totally removed. . move the crap lever to get a good look at it. there is a indentation on the shift rod that it goes through. a good place to see how to do this is on u tube. many videos showing how to do it.

It disconnects inside the plastic water intakes,two nuts then a plastic keeper with a slit in it. Be careful they fly when taking them off. Use a sm pick like ice pick to pry apart. When keeper is off top nut will slide off shift shaft and you can take it off.
There are still things worth dying for and 1 of those things is freedom.
