    Question 1994 GTX

    Greetings,
    Just purchased a 1994 GTX and have encountered a problem.
    Appears to be siezed up around the bearing on the PTO.
    There is a 4" long tube with two clamps that goes from the PTO bearing and where the shaft goes through the hull.
    Engine will turn over very slow and twist the tube. Turns over fine when I remove the clamps.
    Not sure if there is a bearing or a bushing at the hull that is fubar or if it's the bearing on the PTO side.
    Any way to tell which one is causing the grief?
    How big of a job is it to take this apart to replace this stuff?
    Any place to get a step by step?
    Appreciate any help that you can offer.
    Regards
    Greg

    Yes there is a thru hull bearing. hold the shaft with a pair of pliers and turn while holding the engine spray with some lube. The thru hull piece with most of the time come loose. There is a grease fitting if I remember right

    Thanks Treemn,
    When you say to hold the shaft with a pair of pliers, do you mean over top of the rubber tube?
    There is a grease fitting on the PTO side bearing but none that I can see on the thru-hull side.
    I tried to find a picture or an exploded view of this so I could try and figure it out.

    I'll give that a try.
    Thanks again
    Greg

    Thanks Treemn
    Was the bearing on the PTO side.
    Did as you said and freed it right up, lubed it up and ready to go.

    Thanks again
    Regards
    Greg
