I have uploaded this video from when I winterized my boat this fall. Been meaning to ask for any info why my drive shaft slowly turns when the boat is in neutral and idling. I noticed when I was letting the engine/ oil. warm up with the 5 gallon bucket method so I could change the oil.

Is this normal? Something need adjustment? I could put my hand on it and hold it back from rotating.

Thanks!

the reason is that the sesmoidal trunion bearing tends to bind a little when the boat isn't floating. It's normal. :D

Big words + my small brain = uh what's he talking about! I knew there was a mechanical explanation!

That must be real close to the gypsum gum rod. Not sure what it looks like but it can't look good..... ;-)

Wait a minute!! Maybe I should have read a little closer on that statement lol... I retract my previous post because now I think I have an idea on what that is.. Beer+steak= me being worthless... Anyway sorry for the thread hijack.
