    Decided to investigate the seal in the prop shaft hub. The face of the hub
    was defaced where I could not see any seam of a seal retainer.
    No amount of prying with a screwdriver was doing any good.
    I chucked the whole gear case cap in the lathe and started
    cutting away the portion over the seal. After a while the aluminum retainer
    popped loose.
    I thought it was a leather seal, but was surprised to see a
    rubber seal with a formed lip.
    I have not looked for possible replacement seals yet.
    Anyone ever find something that works good here?
    The seal OD is 1.625
    Shaft size .984 (or 25 mm)
    Thickness .306
