    Your front pump shaft seal is leaking.

    One manual says 59 ft. lbs, another year manual says 92 ft. lbs on the prop torque? I've never known anyone to use a torque wrench on a prop though.

    If 59 ft lbs is what the prop is supposed to be torqued to mine is way over torqued. I read somewhere in the 90 ft lb range so I just lean into it

    If you have water in your nose cone id be looking at a full pump rebuild

    Need new seals and the bearings wont last long after being wet!

    It's 92.... the 04 manual is the one that says 59, but that manual is full of typo's. Like 22 ft lbs on the M6 PTO cover, and SC housing bolts

    IF It was me , I would just rebuilt it. Since you mention that its an 04 and don't know exactly how many hour on it anyways. Be safe and you'll have peace of mind!

    i have seen water in cones before and all u need to do is new seals if the bearing shows no signs of rusting.. you will need a shop press and its pretty straight forward once you see it apart...
