    Have you tightened the current one up any? I have had mine replaced once in 9 years and it didn't need it then. I haven't touched mine in 2 years. For what its worth

    I just used a pair of channel locks. Loosen the jamb nut (the thin one) and turn the big one just a little. Might be able to turn with your hand. Should do this in the water to watch for the drip. Needs to drip about every 30 to 45 seconds while boat is in gear idling. Not hard at all.
