    There is no need to remove the drive to replace that hose. It is connected to the transom assembly on the inside of the boat, then it connects to your water pump on the motor.

    Hello,

    It could be a gimbal bearing or a bearing for the input shaft on the upper unit. It would probably be best if you had a marine mechanic take a look and see which one the noise is coming...

    Hello. Looking at these pictures, it does look like you need a complete replacement. This is some very bad corrosion which I suspect is caused by electrolysis. The boat may have been kept in the...

    You would need the SE106 drive. A 260 engine would typically use a 1.47 ratio, but since it is a 26 foot boat I would verify what ratio you have as they sometimes used a 1.32. The best way to verify...

    I normally just use a thin film of any type of grease, although something water based would be best. You want to turn the shaft clockwise when installing the impeller.

    I don't think it is possible for the shift cable to move too easily. The tension that trips the switch comes from the lower unit as you are shifting out of gear. It only works under load as...
