    Default v drive rebuild

    I have a 12 degree casale that got water in it from being underwater and then sat for 8 years. I am trying to get the gears out but the spacer is rusted on if i cant get it off can i take the shaft side apart and slide the whole thing out and put in a press ? or any ideas on how to get the spacer off the top gear? ive been soaking it in penetrating oil, heated it, preyed on it with no luck yet.

    Get some navel jelly from the hardware store it will attack the rust chemically.

    Put a 2-3 lb hammer on one side of the spacer and beat on the opposite side with the ball of a ball peen hammer. The heavy hammer is to back up the ball peen so you don't' jack up the bearing fit in the housing. Do this in about 4 spots around the circumference and it will loosen up. You'll probably have to get a medieval on it, but it will come off. What happens is the rust expands and sticks it on the shaft. Just know the spacers/bearings are junk at this point. You should be able to save the gears by media/ice blasting. Good luck....

    Did the v drive sit with water in it for 8 years? If so, you might want to think about buying another v drive. Just a thought...

    Thanks David i will try it. Steve yes it sat for 8 years it didnt have a lot of water in it just enough to make everything stick the boat sank and wasn't recovered till the next day. they flushed the motor out but didnt think about the vdrive. the motor is locked up too so they didnt do a very good job of flushing it out lol but i got the boat for $50 bucks so cant complain its a 74 hallett long deck.
