    drive shaft seals

    I need to replace the seals on my1996 slx 780 ski. It looks like the edges are peened over so that it would be hard to drive out old ones and install new ones. When i look it up it looks like there might be a revision in the number for the main body. Can someone help me here. I've tried to search this through and am getting nowhere.

    Are you referring to part #9 in the diagram?

    Yes,
    Part 9 is the casted or machined part and i would like to put in two new seals. It looks like the edges of my part #9 are kinda wrapped over a bit so as to make removal and re installation difficult. Or NOt. I dunno!.
    thanks for any help.

    I've never replaced those seals. I think most guys just buy another through hull seal/bearing. (whole unit) You can usually get them for a good price off Ebay.

    But if you want to try the seals themselves, you now have the part number and place to buy them from.
