Unhappy 5.7 or out drive ticking

Hello, new to site and new to maxum boats. Defected from Searay. Bought a 3200 SCR ran great for 2 months but started her up last weekend and heard a ticking noise in rear off engine where shaft from outdrive leave motor. Any guess what it could be?

ooooboy.....first off ..welcome to the zoo....if the noise is in the outdrive...then it's obviously a problem with the drive...but if it's in the back of the engine...it's either the coupler or the u-joint....either way..the drive has to come off and checked out....

Unhappy

it is probably not safe to run that engine i an assuming. So should i creep to the service marina on one motor? What kind of expense are we talking for a coupler or u-joint

while it's all apart...I'd do the whole shibang...but since you haven't told us what model yr you have..what drives..I'm assuming they are b3 drives...the bellows and bearings are about 500 US in parts...each..then it takes probably about 2.5 hrs @ an average of 110 bucks an hr shop fee....if it's the u-joints and coupler....probably about 120 bucks for parts...each drive...

can you drive it over to the marina on one engine...yes....but I'd find someone to come and tie up to your boat and tow you over to the maintenance facility.....that would be easier if you have a bud that would be willing to do it....

I've towed friends and lashed them to the side of my boat...plenty of fenders between the boats...tied the bow/stern together...then had a couple of spring lines...the boat I was towing was tight to my boat and had full control of his boat...parked it right where he wanted it.....easy as pie..
