    I replaced the water pump, then I pulled the Prop to check the lower seals, found outer seal "not good".

    What is the procedure for replacing these seals

    I found on line that there is and inner and outer, I haven't found a procedure for replacing them,, it appears that the bearing carrier has to be removed is this correct. I would appreciate some good advise :007:

    The bearing carrier needs to be removed. The gears, bearings and prop shaft come out of it. Pop out the seals and replace them. Back to back.
