Bow thruster

Rick Grimes

Out of the water (at Bobbies in St Martin--Dutch side) and trying to detach my bow thruster from the motor. Won't budge. The four Allen set screws have been removed. Supposedly supposed to drop straight down at this point. Banged, pulled, pushed. Most think the bow thruster shaft and bearings were contaminated with salt water and is the reason the prop is frozen. Suspecting the salt and corrosion throughout and up to the spline--freezing the spline in place. would normally use penetrating oil to help release it from the motor but can't access it. Ideas? Thoughts?
