    When I took my boat to my brothers the other day for him to go over, I dropped off the Tohatsu lower unit from my skiff. He got into it, and here was his reply today:

    Bill:

    I got the lower unit apart. A lot of fussin and cussin.

    There is NO obvious damage to the gears and bearings.

    To put it back together, you’ll need all parts associated with the bearing carrier, which include”

    bearing carrier housing
    oil seal
    propshaft bearing
    o-ring
    prop nut



    Looks like my skiff will be back in service real soon, and a LOT cheaper than if I had forked over $1000 for a new lower unit. This is a blessing as I don't want to run my big boat on the river when it is terribly low.

    LOL, 'ceptin' for this kidney stone! I'm honest and hardworking, some would say driven. Things DO usually go my way. I guess I try hard. :wink:

    Glad the damage was "minor" instead of major.
