    Hey fellas just walk in you through what I'm doing and what's going on
    Shifting gears on my 99 25 hp 2 smoke yamaha was getting funky
    went to change gear lube - check up
    no lube - just a few ounces of terrifying saltwater- no metal sshavings
    Filled her closed her up . Shot out the inlet for a quick limit on tIles.
    Cameback . Few ounces of saltwaterand milky lube .
    So it's aggressive.
    Pulled propgreased ssplines cchecked prop shaft seal.
    Found mystery rubber grommet behind prop used a coat hanger to pull out. Will load picture soon.
    Plans- order seal kit. Re lubeand pressure test .
    Anything else I should be doing?

    Did you check driveshaft and shift shaft seals?
    Sucks, but at this point i wont reseal a lower unit anymore unless i do all the seals at once

    that's good advice !

    just replacing one seal is asking for trouble !
    reseal the entire lower unit - replace water pump
    pressure/vacuum test !

    Probably going to run a littleover an hours labor plus ballpark $30 in seals and gear oil. So depending on shop rate rough estimate $130-150
