I have a kicker that came on a boat I just got. Its a 1976 6hp Evinrude. The motor runs great but water is not circulating all the way up the shaft. I figured I should check the impeller. I went to remove the 4 bolts near the water pump of the shaft and 2 of the bolt head were already ripped off. It appeared from the 2 bolts that came out that only upper piece was threaded and the lower part of the shaft was not. I have removed the power-head and disconnected everything but I still cannot separate the lower unit. I can only assume those bolts are whats holding it together. Because of the angle I cannot get a drill or reverse bit into the old bolts. All fixed, just had to beat on it!!!
