Do you know the age of the raw water impellers? They should be changed every 2 years. Also bellows should be inspected for signs of cracking in between the folds, leakage can result in damage to the gimbal bearing and u-joints and even sinking.

Are you familiar with outdrives and their maintaince?

Impelles just done. Both legs fully rebuilt including gamble new bellows also. Mechanism says legs should be good for another 5 years. I plan to remove and inspect annually
