Shaft stuffing
 
Anyone know what it's gonna cost me to have the stuffing replaced on a 2005 MasterCraft X2 leaking pretty good this summer. Just curious thanks for the info in any

You could order the rope from SKI DIM and do it yourself for about $20.

Unless 05s came with the dripless system then you have to pull the shaft to change that seal but still a pretty easy job.

Yes the shaft has to be pulled dealer said 1 hr labor and $155 for the part to fix ??????

I think easy is a relative term on this one. With the V-drive you are likely to have very little room between the shaft log, the transmission and the general surrounding area. For myself I would work on it myself and enjoy the process. However, I think for many, they would find the $??.?? per hour of labor much worth it. I would think perhaps 2-3 hours and quite a few explicatives for a non-experienced boat mechanic.

You may want to ask what the labor rate and the max time to do the job.

This is one of those jobs that witnesses are not always a good thing. Lots of contortions performed.

Haha well I've done almost everything to the boat myself. This was one thing I have never done. I prob can do it just the first time is a little intimidating I guess once I tore into I believe I would have to call myself a chicken for doubting myself I guess. I plan on getting the stuff and with a older friend he says he can show me how it's done the first time. Thanks for the feedback guys
