Hello,
The driveshaft on my 1987 evinrude 40 hp motor snapped clean.
Model #: E40TLCUD
I was having touble with the motor before it broke... It would often stay stuck in forward, or stuck in reverse. ( was very frustratting and dangerous) I think that the drive shaft snapped because I must have hit a wave or something the it went from full speed forward to full speed reverse instanly so it just snapped.
If anyone has any idea what could have caused this i would be very gratefull for some help.

Ok in the meantime I am shopping for a drive shaft to replace it. I cannot seem to find any anywere... It is a 20 inch long shaft.
I also wanted to know if I could possibly take a drive shaft from another model evinrude I just dont know which ones and what year is compatible with mine.

Thanks!!!
P.Stefano

The driveshaft is an OEM part only. I wouldn't waste time trying to swap it unless you have the same motor you are parting out.

The part number is OMC 396811.

You can be sure Mike at Go2marine knows where to find it. Give him a call.

I also baught myself a omc repair manual and am mentally preparing myself to get this done haha. I hope that the number the dealer gave me was right because i just baught the drive shaft off ebay for 100$... The guy said that the number is written in it so im guessing i should be safe?
