    Someone probably set them in 5200. Get a bigger hammer.

    To addrss the obvious. you did temove the backing plate on the inside of the transom that holds it in place right? If thats gone its most liley just silicone. I could not imagine needing "Glue" to hold them there.

    When I went to remove my old exhaust tips, they were a real nightmare!! Make sure to try and cut around them with a razor to get through the silicone. Mine finally popped loose and I cant really say why...I just kept working at them without hammering away too hard. I was afraid of damaging my transom also...

    I just took my tips off last week...it was a bitch. I cut around the silicone with a razor then put a long piece of 2x4 on there and whacked it out with a hammer. I knocked the shit out of it and didnt do any transom damage but maybe I just got lucky. I had to hit one side then the other because it was very snug.

    Good Luck
