Just discussing that "very" thing on the phone with "Hoop". My only thought IS "IF" the head is that tuff then how hard might the stud be to get out??? Looks like my next move anyway!!!

Re: how to remove coil 1941 merc

"rockfla" - I have to defer to "Kube" on this, but it looks like the unit shown in the diagram is a later replacement. I don't have an example of one of those, but it looks like it would be much...
