    Int shaft housing removal on GPR

    2001 GPR - To remove the entire INT shaft housing and int shaft will I need to move the engine forward ? The shop manual does not mention it but I did some research here and it is mentioned a couple of times.

    I believe you do. Spud just did his but he had the motor out already. you have to create enough clearance to get it past the coupler on the motor. Are you replacing the complete unit or pressing in a new shaft?

    Thanks Bill - I am replacing the complete unit with the longer shaft for the 2" extension.

    Spud had just the shaft and new coupler we pressed it in the original bearing went easier than we thought.

    Take the top bolts out of the mounts and slide the motor forward. It is tight, but it can be done.

    For the bolts on the motor mounts. Do I remove the 2 attached to the hull or the one in the middle of the mount ?

    Just the ones on top. 1 per mount.

    When trying to remove the single bolt @ the top of the motor mount I can see the entire mount flexing - is this normal ? I am thinking I should slide something inbetween the legs on the mount to minimize the flexing.

    Even I can do it.

    I have no idea how I am going to start the bolts under the pipe after the housing is swapped out.
