around the nut. If you damage the tabs you'll need to replace it. Use tool #90190 (or Mercury #91-61069T), which can be purchase
below, to remove the nut. Using the tool, turn it counter-clockwise. In the event that the part is completely seized into
the housing due to corrosion, you can use a drill to drill out the frozen piece. Remove it along with the key washer and the
aligning key. When re-installing this item, make sure to clean around the internal threads in the lower unit before using
the tool to install (turning clockwise) the new item.
