Alex,

And press it firmly in. It will be about 1-2mm below the outside housing of the bow thruster.

Good morning Bill,

I think this was my mistake... I forgot to put silicone RTV around the outside of the sea...

Yes, 0.3l, but I saw no mention of
using Silicone RTV around the outside of the seal...you
should...because the seal does not fit as good as I would
like to the bow thruster housing...AND...be sure you have
pushed the seal inward all the way. If you have pushed it
all the way, it will be slightly lower than the outside of
the housing.
I have found that these two things will provide
a good seal.

Thruster oil seal  
Hi All,    
              When we
hauled Pen Azen in March I noticed that the oil seal where
the bow thruster prop entered the gear box was leaking,
gently.  I changed the seal. The
only seal I could get at short notice in Corfu didn't
have a stainless spring, but that should not have mattered
as the spring faces inwards and is bathed in oil all the
time. However, when hauling again
in July I noticed the same
weeping.  I now have
a rather better quality seal as a replacement, but it
occurs to me that I may have over filled the leg with
oil. From memory, the volume of
oil should be 0.9 litres and the type of oil SAE 90, or what
you would use in an outboard gear
box. Is my memory correct
? Ian and Judy, Pen Azen, SM
302, Preveza,
Greece
