I see this is an old thread by H20king but as a new owner of a used '09 Elite V, unfortunately I need to replace this seal. It's leaking a lot. Does this do harm to keep using it? The bilge runs about every 25-30 min while sitting. Would adding grease slow the leak down?
When I do change to the new PSS seal, why do I change from the current water supply (tube from exhaust riser) to the 1" T-stat hose?
Also, why does the prop come off? Does the shaft need to slide back more than the prop will allow?
