My bad - fishing line in the prop seals. Dealership backed up for a month. Is there a kit available including seals, specialty tools (puller, etc) a person can order to do the job themselves? If not tools, then at least seals and other o-rings, etc that might need replacing as part of the job? Also, where would I find a service manual detailing the step-by-step procedure. I have the general idea, but a manual can save hours of trial & error.
Thanks for any help or advice.

Your dealer can order a service manual, special tools, and parts for your engine.

The factory recommends that a properly trained technician service your Johnson or Evinrude outboard motor. Should you elect to perform repairs yourself, use caution, common sense, and observe safety procedures in the vicinity of flammable liquids, around moving parts, near high-temperature components, and working with electrical or ignition systems.
The information offered here is only general in nature and should not be construed as complete factory approved procedures, techniques, or specifications. Always use the proper service manual for your motor, up-to-date service literature, the correct tools, and have an understanding of how to proceed with troubleshooting and repair methods. If you are unsure or uncomfortable with a procedure, a situation, or a technique, enlist the services of a factory trained technician.
