Intermediate shaft HOUSING question.
Does the back of the housing, the side facing water, have a small relief vent for grease? Mine has a tiny hole, or loose spot on the rubber to inside seal holder, by where the grease is injected. Since my housing insides were full of water, I wasn't sure if this was a grease pressure relief, and that my water came from bad seals, or what?
I am changing out to the 2" extension and that how I found it, bearing is good, but bad seals may be where small amounts of water have made it into boat.
PS, I am using all new seals and bearing.

Good question. I have seen water in two different ones, and one came off my ski and ran perfect before. When we pressed the new shaft in I greased the hell out of it. I will be greasing that frequently. I figure if it is full of grease there is nowhere for water to go. Be sure to use the marine grease that doesn't breakdown with water.

yes ive had water come through the housing and drip from my grease nipple into the boat.....talk about a hard to find leak.... if you pump grease in and it comes out the water side rubber seal then its bad....
