Help Tip: If you have a question that has not been answered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new thread of your own. By starting your own thread, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum members.

Below are some additional forum policies in hopes of all iboats members will follow, Thank you.

1. Please do not reply to old topics or hijack existing topics. Old topics of a technical nature are like a library book, Please do not write in them.

2. Old topics should be considered archives and used for reference only. Please do not reply to them.

3. Do not take over someone else’s topic (aka hijack) with your own question, even if it is similar. If you have a question that has not been covered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new topic of your own.

4. If you have a question for the original poster (OP) and the topic is over 30 days old, send the OP a PM, he may not even visit the forums any longer, or may not notice your question in the old topic.

5. By starting your own topic, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum helpers that may not even notice your question when it’s posted at the end of someone else’s topic. And those answers will be specific to your particular issue.

6. Please do not post to topics that have been inactive for more than 3 months unless you are the original poster. We have very active forums and any topic that remains inactive for that long should be considered "dead". It is especially confusing when there is an entirely new question posted to an old topic.

7. Posting at the end of any topic is considered to be hijacking the original posters topic which in turn subjects the topic to be closed if it continues to happen thus not making it fair to the original poster in the future had for some reason he/she needed to return for additional information or provide an update of the problem solved which is always welcomed within a reasonable amount of time frame.

8. Please note that you should see a red banner pop up near the bottom of each inactive topic asking you not to reply to old topics. The Red banner will read: Please note this topic has been inactive for 90 days. For the best results, please start a new topic.

Thank you all in advance for doing your part in helping iboats run a smooth ship.

      That's the replacement top plate kit on the gear case to retrofit the bellows type shift rod seal. It gets rid of the bellows type seal and uses the regular type shift rod seal that you normally see. I thought I saw one site that had them. I'll see if I can find it.

      Try getting in touch with these guys.

      Don't know if something like this would work.

                I would try Mastertech Marine in Florida... these guys seem to have sources for Force parts located all over the country.

                you can email them at mtech at mastertechmarine.com

                They have an online catalog but it's not too easy to navigate.

                    If the original seal has a tear, it's usually not repairable. If you could find a rubber bellow seal that was for some other application that has the right dimensions, you could probably use it. Problem is that it may be a lot of trial and error, and cost.

                      no no I found a thread here where a lady named karla was going through the same thing. She hammered out the drive shaft seal and installed new ones. the guy fixing my boat said the seal is not replaceable and I had to replace the whole part... FK721706

                          I owed my mechanic an apology. It wasn't the driveshaft seal which is replaceable it is the older style plate that has the bellows. Its the shift shaft that is leaking. So I do need a new plate cover or find some how an obsolete style bellow...Carl
