I pulled a few springs out of Amel supplied lip seals and they stuck like

Are the springs definitely stainless?

Bill, Colin, Everybody.the more suggestions, the better. What we need to
know now is if the shaft coming out of the reduction gear/reverser is
turning when selecting forward and aft and if the speed of the revolutions
seems commensurate with the increase in engine R.P.M.
Colin, you can get the seals from any good bearing supply shop but be
absolutely certain than the springs on the inside that effect the actual
sealing are non-ferrous/stainless steel. The wear bushing can also be made
locally but is a bit more tricky. There are several postings/threads that
address these issues within the site.
Let us know about the rotation and we will try to help. Also, check your
reduction gear/reverser fluid to be sure it is clear of debris, not 'burnt'
smelling, and certainly not milky and foamy in appearance and let us know
that as well.
All the best,

I will take a stab at trying to help.

***The shaft brake
I will take a wild-ass guess that the shaft brake system may be the
prop shaft because they are worn enough to let water egress into the C
Additionally, your brass wear bushing and 3 seals need replacing on the
Drive. Do you know when these were replaced?
Hope this helps.

just briefly to sail each time we needed to motor for about 1 hour and on
After not using the motor in drive position for a few months more that
checking the engine bay I found drive oil coming out of the plastic filler
cap on the drive oil filler tank.
removed the filler cap and found that the rubber seal inside the cap top was
We immediately stopped the engine and sailed for a couple hours then I
warped and therefore the leak.
to check and no more leaks.... thought problem was solved since leaks
When this was repaired I drove the motor for about 40mins at 2500+ revs
stopped ...until trying to engage reverse (or forwards again) at anchorage
to find no prop engagement ... just spins & would not engage prop while
warm. 2 hours later when cold both FWD & REV does engage prop.
slightly milky brown colour and I have not changed the shaft seals and
Not much oil leaked out - still sufficient in there. Also oil is
bearing for 2+ years or 750hrs of motoring. The engine hours are now 1472
advice for us and what parts we may need to order..
Would greatly value your comments about any similar experiences or
