Hello Art, once you remove the propeller you can see the propeller shaft seals. There are two of them installed back to back. They are relatively easy to replace once you have removed the bearing housing. This is not difficult but I do recommend a service manual if you don't already have one. I also recommend you buy the complete gearcase seal kit not just the two prop shaft seals. To see the part numbers Click on these links: J/E Seal KIt
