Does anyone have a better picture of this puller? I can't tell by the picture how it works. It almost looks like it pulls the prop shaft out with the housing. I have tried everything to remove the carrier housing with no luck. I've tried numerous pullers, lubricants, heat, etc. and it wont budge. I am starting to think a bearing is thermally bound to the prop shaft which won't allow me to pull the carrier.

Purchase a service manual for step by step instructions, illustrations, and specs

Threaded rods screw into the carrier, nuts at the puller itself hold the rods to the puller, center screw then "pushes" against the prop shaft to 'lift' the puller, threaded rods and carrier out.

Does your carrier also have a "retainer"?  Look for a small metal tab (for lack of a better word) that is held down by another screw.  That may need to come out first before the carrier moves at all.  That's just the "View from Under the Shade Tree" though.  [wink]

EDIT: Not sure if yours even has one, but If the two screws where the threaded rods go are 12:00 and 6:00, look at 9:00 (and maybe 3:00).  "Remove wedge, screw, and washer (“O” Type)."

There is no retainer, just the bolts at 12 and 6, that are removed. This is the puller in question.

You can damage the LU if you try to do it the old school method of putting torque on the Drive shaft. You need to use the puller for the M2 Gear Case or a good set of claws with a slide hammer. Putting heat on it will help

OK was just looking at an M2 Service Manual.  DO NOT USE A PULLER AS I DESCRIBED ABOVE  My Bad for this LU.  [frown]

The SM says the exact words that your instructions say, and Yes you are pulling the prop shaft also.  See that bottom text in your pic.

Salt water engine?  Might be time for some soaking in PB Blaster (like Liquid Wrench) before pulling.  Depending on what it is, and Safety! I can't remember anything that wouldn't move without proper application of a propane torch.  [wink]

I am unsure if it was used in salt. I was told no, but then again everything else I was told was a lie, lol. I am really beginning to regret my purchase..

Keep the Faith!  Everyone on here started somewhere - no one popped out of the womb knowing the in's and out's of an ETEC.  [wink]

Maybe try some oil/lube on the threads of the puller, too.  That will make 'em easier to turn, and hopefully drag that puppy out of there.  That Outer Cup of the puller is against the LU housing itself?  Not touching the carrier - that should be able to go up inside the cup as it's being pulled.

You are turning the "Big Nut" correct?  The little top wrench just holds things from turning.  "Assemble puller kit components. Hold adaptor with wrench and turn nut clockwise to pull bearing housing."

Just checking!

EDIT:  Smaller wrench at the very end to hold things still, and turning the larger wrench on the nut to pull.

I was attempting this without that puller. I was asking to see if I could make something similar. I just didnt know if the factory puller jacked out on the shaft to pull shaft and housing together.

I am going through this with two M2 lower units. I was unable to locate the puller... Going to call some ETEC dealers tomorrow. From what I understand it's on BO. I ended up just doing the seals.

I wish I only had a seal job to do but unfortunately my oil looked like glitter.

Yup, pulling the shaft to get both.  That'll take some 'Shade Tree' but depends on your skills and "spare parts" bin.  Some may call it the useless, nasty pile of junk in the garage, but we know it's Priceless stuff!  [biggrin]
