Is there any special maintenance needed to the driveshaft and seal? I don't think I have ever had to do anything with in on our 86 in the past, but am going to to be changing a damper plate so it will be disconnected from engine. Should I consider repacking it or anything else? If so, what's the best way to do that.

Thanks

try this. just don't over tighten you don't have to tighten anymore than hand tight and not as tight as you can with your hands.

It's an easy procedure, I'd do it if you haven't ever replaced the packing.

Im thinking of doing this, but the boat has no signs of needing it so Im going to leave it for a while.
