Thought there was an O ring as well but I am thinking im wrong. this is the packing I was refering to http://www.skidim.com/prodinfo.asp?number=GFO1/4X24, there is a 'how to' in the FAQ's area on the forum that gives you a good idea how to do it. this should stop the water from coming through the shaft....dealt with this last year. Not sure how familiar you are with inboards.....looks like a good project boats....lots of elbow grease and she will come back. Would recommend a cover that goes over the sides as well to protect that red, once it fades it will always fade faster it seems. I know ranken and some other cover manufacturers make them.

Here are two stuffing box/shaft log adjustment and/or packing replacement tutorials, http://mastercraft.com/teamtalk/show...0&postcount=31 and http://www.mastercraft.com/teamtalk/...9&postcount=39, using the packing rope of your choice shown in a previous thread. While you've got the boat disassembled, you can always replace the shaft log with a dripless one here, http://www.skidim.com/products.asp?dept=1032 or here, http://www.ojprops.com/products/shaft_seals

If your raw water pump rear seal is leaking at the bearing, it is just as practical and economical to replace the entire pump that comes with a new installed impeller, http://www.skidim.com/prodinfo.asp?number=RA057023, but if you want to rebuild it, you can do it using this tutirial, http://www.mastercraft.com/teamtalk/...09&postcount=2, which includes part numbers if you can find them here, http://www.skidim.com/products.asp?dept=1094. Always call http://www.skidim.com/contactus.asp, to be sure you get all the stuff you need.

He more than likely needs this for the raw water pump http://www.skidim.com/prodinfo.asp?number=68-5004 It's behind the impellar where the shaft comes through, I had to do mine a couple years ago and it's better than paying for a complete pump.....just be careful getting the old one out and don't damage the housing.

Looks like a fun rehab, best of luck to ya

Wow, this is the first time I have been involved in some kind of forum before and all I have to say is the support is unbelievable. After the short time I have been on here I am convinced that there is no other place to go but here to get the help and info I need for this rebuild.
I can't thank all that post here enough. I have learned a great deal in such a short time.

Thank you all

I just wish that the rest of the world was as cooperative and helpfull
