    Default Water hose Alpha 1 gen 2 replacement.

    Hello,

    How do I replace a water hose (part #32-860220 quicksilver) on the upper unit of the stern drive? Can it be pulled out? This is an alpha1 gen 2 out drive.

    Ayuh,.... Welcome Aboard,....

    That hose is usually swapped out when doin' a Bellows job on the drive,...
    The drive needs to come off, 'n the bellhousing disconnected to get to it...

    If it were Me, I'd plan on changin' ALL the rubber parts, 'n the lower shift cable at the same time...
