I had the same exact condition last year. The lower unit bearing seized and
the lower (vertical) drive shaft twisted clean off. The prop shaft and gears
were fine. I don't know what the repair would have cost but the repair shop
told me I'd be better off to find a good used outdrive. Fortunately I was
able to locate one. Best regards.

Hey All, I have a 1970 Johnson Surfer and today we were in the lake
cruising at about 35mph then all of a sudden the motor reved up and the prop
stop spinning. At first I thought maybe I spun the prop, but I had a spare,
put it on, and it still didn't spin. I put it in reverse, it ran for a
little, then the same thing...motor reved and prop stopped spinning. Anyone
know what the problem might be? Hope not too major.... :-( Thanks for any
replies, ~Joey
