Good point!! Yes, there is one on the housing just above the cavitation plate, I think. I guess the best approach may be to remove anything you can get your hands on. I would, however, leave the driveshaft in the gear box housing. Not sure if things would fall in to themselves if you take it out, but wouldn't want to find out the hard way.
