Yup water got into the upper half, how do the gears look? The upper and lower are connected through the lube passage on the outside wall of the drive and since water will settle and lube float on top there is probably water in the lower unit.

Hi mmwjr.

So of course you are correct...oil in lower leg but all gears seem intact. I am embarking on a strip down and will replace as required. The casings seem really good and I suspect prem gasket failure and water ingress the reason for bearing failure. Stripped out the water impeller today and ordered the correct tools for bearing carrier replacement. The involved parts are currently soaking in penetration fluid ready for removal.
We are going to concentrate now on getting parts for the engine and installing ready for starting...

Nick you can call me Mike.

Sounds like you have a good plan of attack. Looking forward to pictures of you on the water. Best of luck.

Hi all.

Some more pictures added to the link. Spent the weekend with more fibreglass and a heat gun all snug and cosy under the rain cover finishing the engine mounts. I shall paint them tomorrow and then order final parts so i can trial fit the engine next week...Suddenly a corner is turned after a long project.

Hi all...just an update that progress is slow, but forwards. Haven't dropped the engine in as Friends jet ski and other projects took over but they are almost out of the way so just tidying up wiring and waiting for parts to turn up...Starter motor, new water pump and various odds and ends. Checking that sender unit in tanks works (forgot)and rewiring some speaker cables but no new pictures yet.

Holiday home survived two big storms and big tides at the Coast but locally in Ironbridge (first Cast Iron Bridge in the world) the flooding is the biggest on records.
More pictures when I get them...
