Nissan 3.5 leaking gear oil


New member
I bought a used Nissan 3.5 2 stroke and have a gear oil leak coming from the impeller housing. I have purchased a new oil seal but cannot find a way to remove the bearing which sits in front of it on the drive shaft. It appears that the bearing is pressed onto the drive shaft and also pressed in the water pump housing. Please help!
The bearing is pressed onto the driveshaft only. The housing is 2 pieces. The seal presses into the lower housing.
Finally got back to working on this project. I was able to separate the bearing from the housing following your advice. Now, I see the pressed on bearing will need to be replaced. Is it possible to do this without any fancy tools? Thanks.
