Re: PSS Shaft Seal

That shaft seal shouldn't create any vibration. In the beginning you might get a light spray while the carbon part polishes against the stainless rotor. The only vibration I can think of, would be if the engine was miss aligned with the shaft.

I also ended up using jigsaw with metal blades and slice the top off the tank and then cut the tank into pieces . I ende...

Tank is foamed in and I did my best to remove most of the foam but it is pretty tight on the other 3...

I looked through maintenance records from previous 2 owners and looks like it was leaking every 2 years and h...

depth and speed sensor question

I found my speed sensor that is not installed and looks like there is a screw in plug where that sensor supposed to go in. I'm assuming it is possible to unscrew the cap and slide the sensor in and screw the cap back in while on the water? I'm guessing the water will go in so gotta do it quick. Also...
