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 elseís 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 itís posted at the end of someone elseís 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.

      Thanks Steelespike,

      I'm rebuilding my lower end and replacing the bearing on the drive shaft just below the water pump. It goes in the housing and is held in with a snap ring.
      The old bearing had failed and I suspect it was in upside down. I have a second parts motor with a failed bearing also and it was in the same way. You would think I'd be satisfied with that having two sources. However, the Sears parts direct web site says " install with illustration down". If I understand that correctly, they mean the numbers on the bearing would go down. That's reversed from what was in both motors that I have? Also, both bearings in the motor's were failed. So that tells me something.

      Could you look in your manual and try to confirm which way the bearing goes in? This is an angular contact thrust bearing and it is directional. I'd like to get it right the first time.

      Any help, much appreciated.

      Best regards, Al

          My manual says be sure to install bearing with the shielded side toward the water pump.

            Hello Steelespike,

            That's another part of the mystery. Your the second person that told me this. The only problem is both motors did not have shielded bearings in them. They had angular contact thrust bearings installed, both the same number. That is what I purchased from the local bearing company. I asked them about a shielded bearing and they said "thrust bearings are not manufactured with shields". They could have sold me a shielded bearing to fit in the same space, but it would not have thrust capacity, it was just for radial loads. Any other thought's on this. Hopefully someone else can chime in as well. I'd hate to just guess at this!

            Thanks for your help.

            Best regards, Al

              I would think the thrust would be upwards on the drive shaft so the bearing needs to be installed so it supports the thrust.If no seals perhaps you could find a thin seal that will fit between the bearing and the pump.

                Steelespike,

                That's what I'm going to do! When the gears engage I believe the thrust is up as well.

                Thanks for all your help!
