Default Yamaha Drive & Prop Shaft Seals

Hi Andy,

I have a 1999 Yamaha 200 SXTX.

Picked up some fishing line in the prop at the end of the last season and found a little water in the lower unit oil when changing in the fall. Have done some research on changing out prop shaft seals and looks like it is possible to replace them without removing the shaft housing (drilling holes for stainless screws, then using them to pry out both seals) but I am leaning towards having a local mechanic do the work.

Question for you is on the drive shaft and shift rod seals. Does it make sense to have these replaced at the same time since I'll be taking the lower unit apart anyway? I am planning to do the water pump as well.

Thanks,

-- Tom

Hi Tom,

Yes, if you are doing the prop shaft seals, I would do the drive shaft and shift rod as well. Those are easy compared to the prop shaft ones.
