    Default V-Drives leaking...

    Acquired a 1985 Tollycraft 30 Sportcruiser a couple of seasons ago. Both original Borg-Warner V-drives leak - although they function fine. I have not figured out where leaks in trans are coming from. The boat is on the hard now for cosmetic and mechanic work that I am doing. I will be removing starboard engine and tearing down short block (heads already checked) to rebuild since low compression cylinders caused from overheating. Can the port transmission leaks be fixed in place or can it be removed without removing engine - certainly restricted access to trans though.

    Thanks in advance for suggestions/recommendations - TONY

    Now would be the ideal time to address any issues with the gear, while the engine is out...
