Been awhile since I've been on the Forum. I acquired a 1969 Evinrude 33HP Ski Twin. Model # 33952A. Short Shaft, Electric Start.
I was also able to obtain the Factory Repair manual and Parts Listing. The Lower Unit needs a reseal. I have the seal parts kit and other parts needed in hand. Was able to get all parts taken apart W/O any Frozen hardware issues. Here's my Problem.
Special Tools (REMOVAL):
# 304514 - Bushing Punch for the Drive shift Rod bushing, washer and "O" ring removal.
#'s 378445 and 308093 - Drive shaft thrust bearing and pinion removal tools
#'s 377565 and 301927 - Oil retainer from top of gear case removal tools
#301196 - Upper gear case bearing removal tool
Special Tools (INSTALLATION):
#"s 378737 and 308099 - Upper pinion bearing driver and collar
#308098 - lower pinion bearing in upper gear case tool
#304515 - bushing mandrel for the Drive shift Rod bushing, washer and "O" ring install
#'s 378737 and 309915 - Upper gear case bearing installation tools
# 308103 - oil retainer installation tool
Has anyone out there done the reseal on this type lower unit before and if so can you tell me what "Work around" tools you used or fabricated. The shift rod tools look like they are just steel rods. If I know the diameter of them these I could fabricate them. The upper seal I can Tap in with an impact socket.
The other items are my major concern. Once I fabricate these tools they will also Aid me in resealing the two 1964 40HP Big Twins I have here.
Any Help would be appricated. One of the screw holes for the waterpump housing is stripped out. Found another gearcase housing and it is inbound. Was not to sure about putting a heilcoil in this one.
Does anyone know of a Member or Company that I could sent the lower unit to to have this reseal done if I cannot get the tools required to do this? Thanks in Advance.. Brian...
