1988 Force 85hp

by Phil

I started to replace the water pump impeller but when I removed the lower unit I found the driveshaft spline seal and retainer were missing probaably from the last time the impeller was replaced. Since these parts are hard to find and the engine runs just fine without them should I worry? Phil from Bothwell.

Driveshaft Spline Seal
by: Rod

I have been wondering the same thing. I have been asking different marinas and have not received an answer as they do not know. I have a 1987 Force 50hp and am having a hard time finding replacement parts; the driveshaft spline seal is impossible to find as it is obsolete.
