Thats right, definately doing the shift cable ... both the outer housing and the inner core.
Looks practically impossible to change the raw water hose. So I guess I'll be re-using it. Also I don't want to risk messing up the drive lube tube so I will leave that too. I would have liked to change it.
Actually my thoughts on the raw water hose, is why does it have to go through the transom housing, bell housing and through the leg. It seems pretty complicated. Why can't I have a through-hull supplying raw seawater through a strainer (similar to that in the bottom leg)?
I'm actually thinking about doing this maybe next time I do a leg-off service.
