1995 40 HP Force PowerHead Removal

OK need to replace the gasket under the powerhead on my 40HP force. So far I have taken the six bolts out, disconnected the linkages, disconnected the wiring harness, and disconnected the fuel line. I can lift it about 1 Inch and it seems to stop. Am i missing something? So far I have not had assistance to look between the head and base to see if something is still connected, but I just thought i would throw it out here.


Did you disconnect the lower unit?
