Is there an alternate way to get the Bearing Carrier out without this tool? I am unable to locate it locally and need to change the seals on two lower units (M2).

Also the manual says you need to press it in with this tool: 354059

Looking for the backyard mechanics way to do this.

TIA

if you want to get the bearing carrier out, ideally you should use that tool. Otherwise you have to find a way to pull it out without pulling on the prop shaft. Avoid at all costs using the prop shaft the 'traditional way'. This is clearly stated on the service manual.

In a pinch, I’ve used a very large slide hammer with expanding internal jaws to pull the hub. In that same instance I used a large deadblow hammer to seat the hub. Be careful because your going to ding stuff up.

Can you elaborate removing the seals without removing the carrier?

I tried and it don't budge. I don't want to put heat on it cause I believe that will damage the o-rings. I guess I need to try to surgically remove the seals. What a PITA!

They are a tight fit.  Is this a saltwater engine?

BRP has a tool kit which removes and installs propshaft seals without pulling the carrier. It only takes about 10-15 minutes.

Actually got the SEAL out (that's right there was only one) and the other inner seal was not there. I need to double check this because I ran out of daylight. [confused][confused][confused]

Not going to worry about the O-RING's for now. The missing seal scares me. 

I am going to source the Tool's eventually to do a complete breakdown in the next few months.

Quick question - clarify what I see in the manual. 

Prop seals are back to back with outer facing the prop and the inner facing the gear housing.

Drive shaft  Seals (Back to Back) - The smaller (thickness) inside  open end down and the larger outside open end up.

Seahorse beat me to it while I was researching the number. Both above numbers are nil stock in OZ, but doesn't indicate obsolete. Try a backorder.
