Pacific outdrive

Hi all
Still have not finished my trailer yet, so i decided to risk the removal of the inner bearing housing while still in the water.
Removed the shaft and the four retaining bolts for the housing and gently eased it apart, out it came and no water, bellows must be OK.

Removed the 8 alan bolts and split the unit, there was no oil or grease inside the unit so the bearings have been running dry, there is a grub screw on the top and on the side, i persume this is for oil, fill and level, i wish i knew that eariler.
So on the phone in the morning to order the bearings, seals and circlips

Ian, the plugs can be quite difficult to remove sometimes. A little heat will soon sort that out. Also when you put the bearing housing back on with the four bolts, sometimes it doesnt go all the way home, and it is a good idea to check that it is sitting parallel with a set of shims. Remember the rubber donut!

These bearing housings are probably the most forgotten part of the sterndrive and it is common for the oil to be lost. Another good idea is to check the lip seal on the input drive shaft. When the seal is worn the oil will drip out of the front of the housing. We normally clean up the shaft in a lathe with emery to remove any rust, or remachine it slightly and resize the seal to match - all quite simple..

Good luck.

Ian,

Sternpower and Halmatic manuals in the post today for you and Seb. A copy of the Halmatic manual to Jelly as well to see if he can turn them into a PDF. Just need authority from VT Halmatic to publish it, I will send them an email to see if its a problem.

Regards

Pete

Good idea of yours heat up the plug, tried that last night, had heat on it for 40 mins, three twisted alan keys and still no b***dy movement, i have got to get the filler one out as it is in to far and i can't remove one bearing.

They can be sods, if it still wont come out, a trick that we have used is to weld on a steel bar to the grub screw. Then turn it to get it out. The combined heat of the mig welding, and the extra leverage sometimes does the trick. Then you just need to buy a new plug. Im sure it will just pop out when you are just on the verge of giving up!

Ian, yes it was I, but unfortunately I can't make Cardiff. I have also just had the Port nylon hydraulic steering hose come loose and touch the turbo causing total loss of steering which was mildly worrying for a while. Took a litre of fluid to travel 1/2 a mile across Portland harbour very slowly. Will be carrying self amagamating tape next time. Hydraulic connecting widgets to carry out a repair have to be ordered because no one stocks 3/8" in Pompey, but should be sorted next week.

Keep meaning to have a look at my bearing widget and check the oil level.

We ought to arrange a big meet of all the P22 owners and have a parade of the fleet, perhaps next year at Ribex or something. I am sure Dirk Diggle would love to take the salute

Pete

Your a gentleman Pete - thanks again for going to the effort of copying so many sheets!

Let me know how you want the beer tokens too.... you may be in for a bit of a party in exchange for these favours!!!

P22 meet sounds great - just wait until mines done (please!!!!!) How about P22's around britain? Would make an interesting read in RIB Int.

Cheers
