    Default Prop shaft packing

    Yes it seems this subject has been flogged to death. I need to do mine and have never done one before. I looked on both the Moomba and Supra forums, but stumbled on this "diamond", using google. It's great pictures of what's involved and a pretty detailed explanation on how to do it. So I though I would share. I haven't run across this in any of the forums.

    Hope someone else finds it helpful too.

    Thanks to DOCDRS for his help to this point. He had a bunch of good stuff on the forums about this.

    I have an 07 Mobius LS with the dripless shaft. Is the packing the same on a dripless? Do you change it the same way?

    I don't know. Haven't looked at drip less, as mine is the same as the link I provided.

    There is no packing to worry with with a dripless setup.
