View Full Version : v-drive transmission question

07-11-2006, 12:26 PM
So my transmission cooler leaked and allowed water into my tranny, which caused my seals to fail. I'm getting ready to pull my tranny to replace the seals and I'm hoping for a little direction. I have an '01 X-10 Indmar 5.7 with Hurth Tranny.

I've pulled the seat, etc already for access and it looks like I may need to pull my gas tank in order to pull the propeller shaft. Can anyone tell me is it simpler than that?

Also, what's the best way to secure the prop shaft to remove the main coupler? I see evidence that someone clamped onto the shaft at one time, but not sure if that's the best way to approach it.

I've looked all over for a Clymer manual and found a good Indmar one, but not one specific to my Hurth/MC setup. Near as I can tell it's a MC propreitary manual and not available. Any help is appreciated... Thanks,
