im going to pull the shaft and check to see what the deal is...the packing is leaking more than it should so that is getting replaced. im also going to replace the shaft log hose while i am it..it looks worn and actually not the proper type of hose..very soft and flexing more than it should. im thinking the shaft is ok as i get no vibration at any speed but i will have it checked out. i will shoot some pictures tomorrow and post them so some more experienced eyes than mine can look things over. overall, the DD is a pretty simple setup so im hopeful that we can get it sorted out properly in short order...its painfully obvious that something is tight as hell between the prop and the shaft coupler...looking at the bright side it can only be the shaft, the strut, the strut bearing or the packing..right??
