Oh no i dont have to take the outdrive off..i took silicone held the flat nut to the inside lined up with bolt.made it snug...worked good.just need the oring and the plastic insert.cause oring was dry and the plastic was cracked....thanks ill check them outThe nut for the bolt is probably in the upper housing now, you have to take the outdrive off to get it out. It's in the cavity on the inside of the upper gear housing. Try parma marine for the parts, thats where I found them for mine.
Ok I thought that was yours. Still looks good. That’s a job. Did that myself once with my Dad. What a fun experience. Still have those rod holders and track for you if you still need them.Its completed.that wasnt the same boat as this omc.omc is mine and the transom is somebody elses.

Never again.lol.im putting mine in tomarrow at copper kettle.doubt ill go out though.suppose to rain and be crappie.but itll be there.ill let u know...i may take it for a test run.who knows...Hey Vibe. I took my outdrive off and found the back plate to mine. I couldn’t believe it was sitting right there by the port hole. I got it back on and will never take that out again. Have to have some cables replaced or adjusted. My boat won’t slip into reverse. I know for a fact it’s the cables. So I m gonna get that fixed and should be ready for the water. You have yours out. Anxious to hear how your boat does.
