Re: Blown outboard prop shaft seal?
You need to remove the prop and prop bearing carrier. It's not hard, and you'll be pleased with the confidence that you get. Look at a picture on Boat.net for your motor and you'll see it's a simple piece of machinery. Here's how it likely looks. Drain the oil. Careful removal and observation with a few pictures from a digital camera and you'll have it back together in a day. Order your parts ahead of time... anything rubber. Don't lose track of any shims or the order they came out. Good luck. 2002 And Earlier MFS6A Tohatsu Outboard GEAR CASE (PROPELLER SHAFT) Diagram and Parts
