  • Replacing Bellows on OMC Cobra Outdrive

    I have a OMC Cobra Outdrive model 987346. I need to replace both the u-joint and exhaust bellows. After pulling the stern drive unit can I replace these bellows without having to remove the pivot housing?

    Yes. Remove the exhaust bellows. remove the clamp from the transom shield side of the bellows, and release the bellows out of the bellhousing. It should pull out the bottom. If not, remove that big plastic nut and push the fitting out of the bellhousing for a bit more room.
