Ultra 150 drive shaft holder
ok, so i have a crack in mine, how wrong is that!?!! what i was wondering was if i can seal it with silicone or something else. It isn't anywhere near the bearings. To get the holder off you have to pull the engine and then pull the drive shaft, i really don't feel like doing that because it's hard to rip open a 70 mph ski that still runs great.
oh yeah, the holder is the rubber square piece that holds your rear bearings, drive shaft and keeps water out of your ski.

If its starting to leak get it out of there! I almost sank my stx because of that. I patched it together a couple of times but then it failed suddenly and in a big way. If it hadnt been for an extra bilge pump installed on it we wouldnt have made it to shore. Just my .02 cents

I agree, that 70mph ski wont run so great if it sucks up some h2o.
I have seen a couple ski's ruined that way.

Lol it isnt that bad to pull 30 minutes and its sitting on top of the hull 2 hours or less you should have the whole job done. Then you will have peace of mind that you arent going to become a submarine If you got a buddy and a strap have him pick it up while you slide the drive shaft out you may only have to remove the fa and the coupling from the waterbox. Or mabe just take the chamber / stinger and the fa that should give enough room then you wouldnt have to take everything loose. Good luck dive in
