Next step will be to repair small leaks in muffler with fiberglass and puting muffler and tranny back in the boat. I don't think I will replace the damper plate in the end: it looked good as is on first inspection.

With pleasure! This forum has saved me from expensive mechanic bills so many times for things that are, in the end, reasonably easy to do yourself provided you have the right advice...

Thanks

What was the tool that you had on the propshaft coupler? Presumably to keep it from spinning. The coupler Didn't require any special tools for removal. It looks like my hurth zf45 needs some sort of spanner wrench.

I priced a rebuild and it does seem high for a one day job.

Thanks for the writeup.

It's an oil filter remover, I used to, like you said, keep the shaft from spinning. I had the mechanic from across the street remove and at the end tighten the coupler nut because I don't have a 1-1/2" hex socket + it was presumably a lot easyer with his pneumatic wrench.

Great write up and thanks for all of the pictures.


Excellent work. Now all you need to do is put her back in and ski.


Oh and maybe take some install pics of transmission removal. I am sure there are other threads where they are removed but the way you take pics and document, makes it extremely easy for the non mechanic to understand. If you can show how you got the engine to stay level and not flop backwards or how you got the transmission lined back up.


Thank you thank you thank you. I'm sure this thread will be edited and cleaned up from a mod and saved in the FAQ. This will very much help others in the future. It is always nice to help someone.

Looks like it's raining this weekend: don't think i'll put the tranny back in if not sure about weather but will try to take pictures when I do.

Boat is back in the water and running great. Didn't take pictures of the re- install ( forgot camera at home) but it's very straight forward.
