Re: A54 bow thruster seal replacement?


Yes, using a piece of the right size steel bar. It was a lot of pressure with a mechanical puller.

Ok, we're now digging into it and here's where we're stuck:

We removed the two large bolts that go into the shaft and it seems the shaft does not want to drop even after some copious PB Blaster. Are we missing something or is it just that the lower unit / motor junction is heavily corroded? 

Bill - did you remove the motor and use a puller to apply force directly to the shaft itself? The mechanic working with me is a bit afraid to put too much force on the shaft itself.
