More info

During a rebuild, you invariably find, that the mild steel bush that runs on the oil seal is badly rusted and you should change it, or the rust progresses further in to the gearbox and leaks oil in the boat. my solution is to replace this with a stainless steel bush that cannot rust, and you always replace the seal, so thats included too.

The bush i supply is 1mm shorter than the original that you cannot get anyway, and this gap will needs closing with a precision washer i include, next to the flange(seal bush and washer to flange with sealant as normal) OR you could dispense with the washer and ream flange hole out 2mm 45 degrees with a grinding bit, like i do (neater?)

Note: the OEM now is 3mm longer than original in s/s, but i dont like this since the nut then cannot use all threads so is insecure, and it will also alter propellor and shaft seal positions.
