1100 STX DI Noise when turning left?
On a stx 1100 I get a noise when turning left, sometimes straight but it goes away when turning right.
I removed the pump and can see where the impeller has hit the wear ring, but the pump bearings feel good.
Seems to have a lot of play where the shaft goes through the hull. Does that bearing have bad history? to you have to remove engine to replace it ?

In my experience, the rubber donut that the bearing is mounted in goes bad and causes a water leak.
Yes, you have to pull the engine to change the bearing/seal.

Might want to run it with the seat off and look for the bearing carrier leaking. Sounds like that or mabe a bad drive shaft bearing. You would need to atleast lift the motor far enough to slide the drive shaft under it to change those parts.
