    Mercruiser Bravo Drive Engine to Drive Coupling - Do I Need to Remove Engine or Drive to Replace?
from Paul (216.192.148.14)

Rated:

 The boat in question is a 94 Maxxum 32' with twin Mercruiser V8's and a Bravo drive. The rubber coupler between the engine and the drive needs to be replaced.

Never done this before, do I have to pull the drive or engine to replace the coupler? Or can you just take the old one off and put the new one in.

How many hours would you estimate this job will take? One day or less?

TIA

Paul

 you need to remove both the drive and the engine. my best advice is to take it to a qualified technician and have it done. should take about 6 hrs.

 Paul...Eric is correct. You need to have a professional do it. The engine has to be pulled to get to the coupler and after it's back in, the engine alignment has to be checked. Also make sure that you get them to replace it with the new steel spline coupler with the extended snout. The coupler that came with your boat has aluminum splines and wears faster. Doug R.

 Paul...Also have them check both couplers. If one went, it's a pretty sure bet that the other is probably close behind. Doug R.

 How do you know the drive hub is bad?. A bad prop hub or cone clutch in the upper unit will have the same symptoms.
