    Its cheaper to take the lower unit off and take it to a shop for this procedure . If you buy the equipment to do this it will cost you out the yang yang. I set mine in a tub of water and ease a little air into the lower unit via the fill screw hole and look for air bubbles. That tell me where the leaks are and I repair from that.
