    Thumbs up DiMarco21's V-Drive Shaft Seals

    New V-Drive 1" rudder stuffing box.

    Square or round flange available.

    New design. Made from 6061-T6 Aluminum that is machined finish.

    Sealed bearing design (just like my billet prop shaft log seals). No more housings to wear out!!! The prop shaft rides on the bearing.

    My new rudder stuffing box has a standard 3 5/16" square mounting flange. So it is a direct replacement for your older style stuffing box. I did not put in mounting holes because every hull is different and has a variety of hole sizes and patterns. All you have to do is transfer punch the exsisting hole locations in your hull to the rudder box and drill the size you need.

    Fits all standard 1 1/2" diameter thru hull holes. I left the 1 1/2" diameter section that goes thru the bottom of your hull long (1 3/4" long) to accommodate any hull thickness. You will have to trim to fit.

    Overall height of stuffing box inside the boat is 2 1/8".

    Starting from the top of the stuffing box to the bottom features a snap ring for safety to help retain the 1" sealed bearing that is bored a few thousands larger than your rudder shaft.

    Next is an ample sized grease reservoir which is filled by the grease zert located on the outside of the rudder box housing.

    A double lip grease cup seal is lightly pressed in as a second barrier to keep water out. The first water barrier is a 1/8" diameter o-ring that is below the grease cup seal.

    Price is $195. each. If you have any questions please ask.

    **********************************************

    Also now in stock is a 1 1/8" billet rudder stuffing box.

    Same features (except for a 1 5/8" diameter thru hull size) and price as my 1" rudder box. Thanks.

    I made up some new (off and old design) 1" prop shaft log seals. They are made from 6061-T6 aluminum with a machined finish. They are 2 1/2" diameter by 2 1/2" long. There is a pressed in 2" dia. double sealed bearing with the inside diameter honed to 1.002" (to slip over your prop shaft) its also held in by a snap ring for safety.

    Inside there is a double lip cup seal to keep the water out and a grease zert on the outside body to grease the seal. A standard size 1 3/4" hose fits from the rear, I also added rounded grooves to help the hose clamp bite into the housing and not slip off.

    With this design there will be no more prop shaft wear of bushings to replace because it rides on a bearing.

    I'm selling these for $89.00 . Let me know if you would like one. I am also have 1 1/8" diameter prop shafts seals if your interested. Thanks

    1 1/8" prop shaft log seals.

    Just like my 1" prop seals they are made from 6061-T6 aluminum with a machined finish. They are 3" diameter by 2 3/4" long. There is a pressed in 2 1/2" dia. double sealed bearing with the inside diameter honed to 1.127" (to slip over your prop shaft) its also held in by a snap ring for safety.

    Inside there is a double lip cup seal to keep the water out and a grease zert on the outside body to grease the seal. A standard size 1 3/4" hose fits from the rear, I also added rounded grooves to help the hose clamp bite into the housing and not slip off.

    I made up a few affordable v-drive grab handles. It is made from 6061-T6 aluminum and comes in a machined finish that is easily polished.

    The handle is approximately 5" long and 1" wide. They will fit standard Casale v-drives with the 5/16" bolt that holds the cases together. I made the two machined spacers extra long to fit the different styles of cases. Some have bosses and some don't. You have to cut the spacers to fit your application.

    Price is $89. for the handle and two spacers. Long 5/16" bolt not included.

    Thanks, Phil
