Nice thing is I have two new bearings sitting on the bench I need to get some seals though. I had found the engine out of alignment before the last trip out and fixed it so this is the result of that previous condition. I did notice it started making a whirring sound towards the end of the last outing now I know where it was coming from.

this was what I was seeing many moons ago, with just atf in there. I went with the 50/50 gear lube and axle grease. Never had a problem since. I can't tell you how long it last, because I've never lost a pump since.

Bill, I think I have brand new seals.

Nice! Make sure you polish the seal surface with some 600 grit before putting it back together. The washer that goes behind the prop has been upgraded by Yamaha to a SS piece with no rubber outer. I think it helps keep pressure off the seals. Also when installing the seals pack them with water proof grease, especially inbetween the two.
