Got in a little shallow and unfortunately sucked some rocks thru the impeller. It stalled the engine right away so I figured it wasn't good. Got it up on the lift and there is a jammed between the impeller and the grate behind it. I tried to remove the steering assembly to get to it. Took off the 4 nuts that attached the assembly to the hull....and unhooked the steering and trim linkage. Everything seemed loose, but it wouldn't come off. There are two small hose attached from the inside....is this all that's holding it in or is it loose and i just need to pull harder. Didn't want to screw it up.
