    These are the instructions that were sent to my by Brian Raymond, they are on the bottom of the instructions for the Shaft Alignment process. I just copy pasted the instructions I received from Skiers Choice. Hopefully someone from the factory will chime in and verify them.

    well the shop near my place just said they wont be able to get to my boat until next week, so i may just pull it home and attempt this myself.

    the instructions look pretty good.

    just so I know, for when I attempt this on the weekend... you just get it pretty close, then adjust it out on the water to the perfect spec?

    Well the stuff from skidim won't be here for the weekend, but the local store had some other stuff, I was wondering does this look like the right product?

    Appears to be from "Western Pacific Trading, Inc." "Flax Shaft Packing 1/4""

    Spyder,
    Looks correct, now the question goes back to JesseC's post quoting Brian Raymond.. Is it 1/4 or is it 3/16"? I too have 06LSV and attempted replacing last weekend with 1/4" GoreTex packing... way tight and nowhere near like when I did my Outback last year.. I have 3/16 on the way, but it will be Fri/Sat before I can get to it. I know what I pulled out of mine seemed smaller than new gore tex, but I assumed it was worn. You may want to see if that local store has some 3/16" too just in case..
    You'll need something like an awl or short ice pic to pick out the old packing.. I had a PigTail barbecue turner that I used but it was not best option..

    I called and left Brian a message to chime in on this thread. I also did a search on the forum and came up with an older post he had made:

    Yep, I got the same response from Anthony Cooper.

    Hi Derek.
    All Moomba D-Drive boats have 1/4" packing. But all of our V-Drives
    boats use 3/16" packing.


    Also, I just called and left a voice mail for Anthony to drop me that document in a e-mail, if I get it i'll make sure to post it here.

    On a V-Drive, can anyone tell me the size of the lock nut and packing nut so I can be sure to have all the tools with me?

    also, what would be the best tool to cut the packing to ensure a straight edge?

    Spyder,
    I just use channel locks. you should only have to use it on the locking nut. You should be able to move the packing log nut by hand.

    Did mine yesterday aft. not too bad. Have fun.
    The 3/16 did seem more correct than the 1/4 by the way.

    I replaced the packing with some new packing rope following all instructions. I put it in the water and it was dripping about a drop every 5 seconds out the front where the shaft hole is, and I brought it for a spin and a bunch of wax melted out the front, I drove it for about 10 minutes, brought it back in to take a look and it's still dripping about 1 drop every 5 seconds. I loosened off the lock nut, and tightened it down a fair bit more and it's still dripping about 1 drop every 5 seconds even when the boat is turned off..

    Is this normal? I am just gonna leave this wax stuff in, until I get the gore-tex stuff delivered, or if it's decent enough, until the end of the season.

    as for the replacement, i pulled all 4 pieces of the old shit out and I put 4 new pieces in (with only 3 I could hand tighten the packing nut all the way down to the bottom of the threads.

    any ideas or suggestions?
