Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Prop Shaft bearing and Seals Replacement


Two seals face in toward the oil, that is the open end of the seal faces inward. The third seal faces out to the sea. All should be packed with grease. When you remove the old wear ring, brass, it could be reamed out slightly so it fits loosely over the schaft and can be used to set the new seals so that they do not get bent on the installation process.
Hope this helps

Subject: [Amel Yacht Owners] Prop Shaft bearing and Seals Replacement

We are about to replace prop shaft bearing and the three seals that
come with it. Two of these seals must face one way and the third seal
must face in the opposite direction to keep oil in and water out. The
problem is I don't know the proper orientation for each of these three
seals. Can anyone help with this one?
