Post Subject: oil leak on prm geargox

Hi ive got an oil leak which seems to be coming from the output shaft ? My question is can this shaft be removed with gearbox still in the boat or does the box need to be removed and stripped down ? Forgot to say its a PRM Delta 30. thnks

I very much doubt that the shaft can be removed from the box, but why would you want to. This is probably a failed oil seal running on and extension to the gearbox half coupling so (without access to a diagram) I would have thought removing the half coupling, hooking the seal out and pushing a new one back in and the refitting the coupling is all that is required. The biggest problem will be holding the half coupling so you can undo the securing nut and finding out if it is a left or right hand thread. Tony Brooks

You can not remove the output shaft on a vertically split PRM box without separating the two halves but even if I am wrong about the oil seal running on part of the coupling I think that once the coupling is off you should be able to change the seal. Tony Brooks
