Thanks in advance.
skidim part number 82908 is the seal. i used marine grease. when i lowered the rudder i used a jack and lowered the rudder just enought to clear the seal. after replacing the seal just raise the rudder back up. also buy some good snap ring plyers. cheap ones make this job a bit#$.
