Refresh my memory. Didn't the 18 hp fasttwin have the split gear case?

My old chrysler had a seal in the bearing cage that I worked on for 4 hours before I could finally get it out. I was sure the carrier was built with the seal in it. A combination pliers was the perfect tool. When I got it out I used a deep socket and pounded in the new one instead of using an arbor press. Yours might be different. Hope this helps.

I just did this to two outboards last year and have one waiting to be done. I'm having a hard time picturing the seal. Yes its pressed in, a coat hanger with a small hook should be able to grab the seal and work it out. Post a picture if you can or send it to me.

      Hi all. I'm a newbie. And Iowan, but I love everything Minnesota. Ice Fishing is a short season here. I'm down by cedar rapids. Girlfriend and I are going to faribault this weekend to try some lakes. Any tips would be appreciated. I honestly don't keep many walleye back here, we imposed our own 17 in to 24 in all we keep standard. And it's helping the River in our area. At Least we think so.  Anyway, we're just looking for some good walleye and Pike action any bonus panfish too. If you could give us some legit pointers . That would make an awesome trip. Thanks again. Tight lines God too many beers . We only keep 17 to 24 inch eyes

      First Welcome to FM, They definitely can be caught during the day but the water is really clear usally on that lake and I have found over the years of fishing it that the evening into the dark bite can be way better. Don't rule out trying to target those fish you saw.  Some options are fishing  on a cloudy day, or try down sizeing your presentation as you may surprise yourself and put a few topside.

      Electrical tape for me nice and smooth. If your worried about the residue at the end of the season a little tip is rub  toothpaste on the cork work it around then wash in water.  Cleans them up takes the scum off and they look good as new when done.
