Any one have any tricks, can't get the lower unit to come closer to the upper unit than about one and a half inches the water tube is lined up and connected but will not slide the rest of the way up, motor is in neutral every thing appears to be aligned. The motor is a 2005 Mercury 150 hp Optimax...Thanks
