That sounds like a really good thing to check, tph.

There's something really badly wrong with that much water coming in. Fortunately, everything there is pretty simple to troubleshoot.

Looks to me like the clamp failed and the shaft log has slid forward up against the coupling off the brass fitting fiberglassed/bolted into the hull. You should be able to slide it back over the fitting and install a couple new ss/clamps, that is unless the rubber tube had been damaged or part of it is missing.

Does that look like a long enough piece? I didnt think about sliding it back, I dont remember what it looked like working. I have to go to autozone tonight anyhow so I can pick up some clamps.

IIRC, you have a PowerSlot and even with the longer transmission, your packing nut should not be up against the coupling. There should be a space between them so you have room to unbolt the coupling and get to the nut in the end of the shaft in the coupling. the rubber should be toward the rear on the thru hull fitting. Since the one clamp went bad, replace them all with new stainless ones.

If you decide to replace the hose (i.e. pull the shaft) you may want to replace the strut bushings at the same time.

If you do decidde to replace the strut bearing as well you might need one of these:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3zZ2mSH_Ncc

I replaced my brass/Rubber with the vesconite Bearings. The Bearings went in tight, but only after 2 trips the inner most bearing started spinning inside the Strut and came out half way...

If they went in tight, I'm not sure why they would come loose, but I tapped the end of the strut so the bearing wouldn't come out. However, it does still spin a bit in the strut...

Vesconite...


i'm wondering if I should go back to these:

Cutlass:


Anywho, do your research and let us know what you decide...

IIRC there are two sizes (diameters). Perhaps you have the wrong size?

MM, contact TT member XPC Sealman about your strut bearing problem by pm or @ http://www.ojprops.com/contact_us.
I bet he can help.
