Re: Lewmar V4/V5 shaft lip seal
Hi Scott,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I have done it. There is only the one circlip on the shaft if I remember correctly. Should be easy to pry it off with a small screw driver.
I found that the shaft with keyway was tight and needed persuasion to drop out, ( heat and WD40)
I changed my seal in Gocek Turkey. Generic one cost a couple of dollars. Once you have the shaft out the seal is right there and pops out. I reassembled with plenty of grease. Wet and dry paper cleaned the calked up shaft. Now I annually inspect the shaft, dropping it easily without use of force, just a gentle tap.
I think that once it gets a bit of calcium/salt build up it gets very tight. Which is why I do the annual service.
