    There is an inside snap ring holding the seal in place.

    Great! Thanks for all the info. Sounds simple enough, just going to be time consuming! Muchas Gracias Seņor!

    I have never done it, but I would be inclined to use some dish soap on the drive shaft to lubricate it so it slid easier thru the seal. (No delicate way to word what I am trying to say, but it goes for everything in life). Lubricate the shaft before sliding it in.

    Just to update everyone, my boat just needed an adjustment of the packing nut. The packing hadn't actually gone bad.

    Sooo I finally got down below the vdrive to get a close look at this seal I need to replace.... Annnnnnnnnd yeaaaa I thought installing LEDs took some awkward body positions in some really tight spots, but that has nothing on trying to get to that seal and get those clamps off. Definitely gonna have to wait for the off season for this task...
