    2003 msx140 driveshaft through-hull bearing leak

    Hi guys,
    Well my 2003 msx140 is taking on water right where the through hull bearing seals are located. I have read through some super long threads from the last 2 years with a ton of info,
    what I need to know is: who has the updated rebuild kits available in stock, and do I need to purchase my own driveshaft removal tool?


    I called the former Polaris dealer in town and they said they don't have the resources available to fix it.

    Parts Sources are listed from my signature links.

    Polaris MSX through-hull bearing support carrier rebuild kit is PN 2858113
    How to remove the MSX drive shaft

    Generic replacement bearing is a 6205.
    The inner seal is 25 x 52 x 10 (substituted with generic 25x52x7)
    The two outer seals are 25x35x10 (substituted with generic 25x35x7)

    MSX drive shaft removal tool is Polaris PW-46593


    You can hold the round coupler inside the hull with a vice-grip chain wrench while applying torque to the drive shaft end with the PW-46593 tool.

    Does anyone have a "MSX drive shaft removal tool - Polaris PW-46593
    " that I could rent for a few days and then return it?

    I was looking around on Randy's site Watcon.com , I wonder if this part for the hydrospace shaft is similar to what I need:

    It sure looks similar.

    And the $16 price seems very good!



    It is does indeed fit the MSX drive shaft, I am ordering one too

    k447, Thanks for the help bro,

    I bought the correct one from Randy after speaking to him on the phone, great guy.
    , it was 29.95
    Considering the official polaris tool goes for 80.00 to 90.00 or so
    A good deal !!!

    MSX drive shaft removal tool is Polaris PW-46593

    The Polaris tool is a 1/2 drive on the opposite side that you cannot see in the picture

    Still, $30 is a reasonable price.http://www.greenhulk.net/forums/edit...post&p=1666069

    The photo on my site is correct.. Thats what I sell.. You slip the tool onto the splined shaft, then attach a socket onto the tool.. You will most likely need a breaker bar also.
