    just to make sure, the black hose that supports the through hull bearing comes off with little to no effort correct? no glue? trying to get the black hose piece off but can't seem to get it off

    They are difficult to get off sometimes. I have used a plastic tool meant to remove automotive trim pieces to pry them off.

    Update: got the carrier and driveshaft off.

    tip: Do NOT put a driveshaft back in if it has grooves where water can get past into the bearings, IT WILL SIEZE AND IT WILL TAKE HOURS, IF NOT DAYS TO GET OFF.

    So what i did was, cut the black rubber boot (protectant hose) off, than cut a slot with a dremel and metal cutting wheel and pryed it open with a crowbar enough to let the driveshaft side out. i'm going to attach some pics to show how i got the actual bearing off.

    Ordering the new driveshaft, a new bearing assembly, and going to pick up a new hose from home depot.

    i chose to stick with the 'bearing' one because i like the idea of having actual bearings, and i had good luck with the original one i had but this one went bad so quick because of the driveshaft being worn and water being able to get in and eventually seized the bearing.

    question: when i go to home depot, any rubber hose will work correct? or does it need to be a particular one?
    (the black rubber hose that connects to the hull and bearing)

    That "hose" is made of some pretty unusual stuff. If it were me I'd get an OEM used one to put back in there.

    Cool, I was not aware that there were "new" options available.
