Got a coat of Self Etching Primer on the lower unit today.

Not sure of the paint color code for the 57 Evinrude. The motor cover is black and white, but the lower unit is a medium grey...

I'm not ready to invest in a HVLP paint sprayer yet... what's the best method for spray painting the Lower Unit, Prop, and Prop Boss after the Etching primer is down? Rustoleum High Gloss with a clear coat?

Trey,

If you notice the one end is cut to different diameters. So from the bottom up you just slide it into the shift rod hole and hit it with a hammer a couple of times and it pops right out. To re-install the bushing and seal you put it over the end, the new o-ring will hold it on and you put it back in the hole and hit with a hammer a couple of times and back in it goes.

I am a believer in having the right tool for the job...

Made my gasket. We inherited this hole punch from my uncle who worked for South Central Bell.

As you can see, it punches clean through most materials.

Made by Sargent & Co in New Haven Conn.

How does it work to remove? Push up from the bottom?

I pulled out the shift rod seal, expecting to find a squashed donut under it, but this one looks different... or really, really squashed.

Is the seal on the 57 Evinrude shift rod single use?


Trey,

Here is the tool I got from Dan Gano for removing the shift rod seal. Was about $15.00. You use it to both remove and re-insert the seal. Takes about 5 minutes to do both...

Mine needs a little tweaking... the jigsaw I used didn't have a straight blade, so it came out.... trapezoidal. Gotta clean that up a bit and figure out a better way to strap it down to the workbench.

I have three of these setup on my work bench in my basement. Best setup you can work on both sides of the lower unit.
I also store my lower units on them for the winter...
