I got a used lower unit off ebay and got it installed. Man those are a pain in the butt to install by yourself. Luckily I found some online posts about using a socket to help turn the shift linkage so it lines up. 4 hours later. The ebay post said it shipped with a new propeller and new lube in lower unit. After this last headache, I changed it my self as soon as it was installed.. What do I do with my other lower unit? Is it worth anything to part it out on ebay?

Give the old lu to the dealer to rebuild when he pays your for the one you bought.

I took the boat out for a couple hours on Sunday and everything worked wonderfully. Cruised up and down the river. Now I just to build some more confidence in the old girl.
