    Driveshaft coupler missing?

    I noticed the driveshaft coupler, bearings, rubber boot, etc were missing. basically everything in this image from the motor to the prop. All I see is the driveshaft. What is the purpose of these parts? will I have trouble?

    I believe what you are talking about is the floating bearing and seals. Yes If you dont have that you WILL have problems... Best to call me 218 844 4968 and I will set you up.

    I was mistaken. Water was entering the hull through the float bearing assembly. I have the converted coupler and drive shaft. The schemtic image above is the factory. After researching I have the updated shaft/coupler. Which I believe is the same as the 98 TS1000R. I ordered that new float bearing assembly today. The grease fitting on that seems like a plug, and not a fitting. Is it wise to replace with a standard fitting and grease that every certain amount of hours? The float bearing being so dry actually grooved the driveshaft, so I ordered a new one of those as well as I assumed it would not seal properly. part #14 on the updated image. I also noticed I'm missing the washer in front of the coupler and the float bearing. Does this shim the shaft? Do I need it. It would part # 12 on the updated image.
