      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Estimate-- replacing seals on lower unit?

Recommended Posts

Hey all.. Last year when we drained the oil from the lower unit of my outboard we noticed that it had gotten some water in it and was discolored. (though it still ran fine) I remebered when I changed the prop last year I had found a buch of fishing line wound around the shaft, and my Grandpa seems to think that is what weakend the seal. But I am a little short on Cash right now.. so I was wondering how big of an issue this is, (as if should be done ASAP, can wait, etc..) and around how much it would cost to get them replaced?

I don't know what kind of motor you have, but
I had the same problem with my Honda 15hp. Just got it back from the mechanic. It came to $120 for all the parts (prop seals, shifter seal, new water pump assembly) and labor. The shifter seal is not normally replaced, but I had it done anyway cause it was worn out.

Just the prop shaft seals should be a relatively easy fix, and always change the water pump as long as your working on it.

I did not want to do it myself. It can be tricky without the proper tools.

I have a mid-80's vintage Evinrude 30hp.

Had the same thing happen to me - except in my case I found grease on the floor of my shed during winter storage.

Took it in to the local dealer - cost me about $100 - all three seals and (spark) plugs to boot - I had placed a yellow sticky on the powerhead last fall - reminding me to put plugs in this spring - they found the note and did it for me. smile.gif

If you have never replaced a seal I would reccomend taking it to a shop. Yes they are easy to put on if you know how to do it. But it is just as easy to wreck it. Any cut in it or misalignment you will have done the work for nothing. And most important DONT ding up the shaft by getting bucky with a chiesel trying to get it off or you will have more problems then the seal. If you have a mechanical friend that could help guide you go for it.
If you have a regular shop you go to maybe be able to work out a deal to make a couple of payments. Sooner the better to get it fixed you need to keep the water out of your unit which thins the grease and could wear the gears costing more money.

Go to the library and get a repair manual for you're motor, there are several published and will be found in most larger libraries. Just the output seal replacement is most likely a relatively easy job, I'm doing it on my Force 120, the seal itself is just a few dollars. The outer part is visible after the prop and prop spacer is removed, and is a metal ring surrounding the shaft and imbedded into the output hub. Most are pressed into the hub and can be removed with a very small chisel and a hammer. But I caution you, get the manual and read how to remove and reinstall it first, especially if you haven't done much work like it before!

    • Stumbled on this thread and nice to see that cool truck! That's is a sweet find. Reminds me of the project truck of my buddy's uncle. 1992 F150 2x4 6" suspension lift, Motometal forged wheels, and 33" tires.
    • Sacrilege!! Burn him! Burn him! 
    • Picked up a beat up old snowmobile sleigh with holes and cracks for cheap. 20 years in fiberglass mfg helped a lot! Fun little project to haul the grandsons around for some ice fishing and trail riding.
      Still need to add the windshield. I call it the "Monster Hauler!"
    • Agree to the fact that sometimes things we smoke do add up money wise.  I smoked 35 pounds of goose sausage today for the kid, spent around 100 bucks, trim, seasonings, casing etc.  But......... i got to drink about 13,14 and watch the queens while i did it, thats why I smoke. lol
    • From the tree I assume, not the stand.  But close for sure!  Nice to have a 10 pointer down (and all the other stuff) by this time of year.
