Drive shaft Seal?
Is there suppose to be a seal where the driveshaft goes into the hull?

The seal is inside at the intermediate shaft housing. there is a hose inside that goes between the intermediate shaft and the tunnel housing. There are a couple o-rings inside the intermediate shaft where the drive shaft fit's in put plenty of grease on the splines when you install to prevent rust and damage to the intermediate shaft splines.

Here is the pic from a 07 GPR of the hose, I change mine to a heavier duty Gates hose. I get them from WFO you can buy it at NAPA also.

I think the "double O ring" set up inside the intermediate shaft is dumb! This is really supposed to seal? Last year, I took out my pump assembly. When I put it back in I too "greased" it heavily with marine grease.
This year, when I did my complete engine/jet pump rebuild I discovered it did not seal very well. I had severe corrosion inside the intermediate shaft and could clearly see the signs of water infiltration.
Any one have suggestions on making a better seal?
