So I have 1/2'' or so of side to side movement on my dp-a duo prop outdrive. The mechanic says it's the bushings that are worn out in that steering helmet assembly. Is it really that simple? Seems like a lot of play for just a few worn out bushings that aren't even that thick. I would think if you keep running it with worn out bushings, it will start wallowing out the metal also. Hopefully the mechanic will see what's wrong with it today. I've heard this is a common issue with these drives, but honestly I never really researched it further other and moving my outdrive back and forth and looking for what could be the problem. I kind of wonder if I should just look for a whole new transom shield assembly that's been rebuilt, since the outdrive leg is being changed out for a rebuilt unit.
