Water coming in at shaft

Postby lee » Thu May 02, 2019 5:17 pm

Just splashed my freedom 30 and when I started my engine I had water coming in where the shaft enters the engine compartment while the engine is idling. It’s splashes as it vibrates. I’ve never worked with the shaft seal on these. Any ideas?

The length available in a Freedom 30 is not enough for most shaft seals. Contact Paul Dennis at http://www.warrenriverboatworks.com/. He stocks a custom cut down waterless shaft seal for these Freedoms.

Do not install a Norscott seal as when it fails it dumps transmission oil into the ocean.
