  • Where to start rebuild on inboard shaft

    Here is a picture of my inboard shaft. I pulled the engines and need to go through, and perhaps rebuild. What do I need to do? Where do I start?

    I am sure the packing needs to be replaced. What about the plate bolted to the hull? It is a 1" dia shaft.

    Should I be replacing the coupling since it is rusted, or should I just clean it? the set screws are rusted in. It has been sitting for 10 years.

    Does an one know how to identify the make? model?

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    Evaluate condition of transom.-----Evaluate condition of engines .----Rebuild engines if possible.-----Replace engines if not rebuildable.------Replace shafts / stuffing boxes as needed to match engines.----I would leave stuffing boxes / shafts as the last step to this project.

      Even leaving them as a last step, I'd spray them down with a good penetrant. Let them soak whilst inspecting the rest of the rig.
      If ya can't fix it with a hammer,ya got yourself an electrical problem.
