02 vlx strut replacement

Recommended Posts

I have a 2002 vlx with a possible bent strut that holds the shaft for the prop. We have had the dealer replace this before but they charge way too much for something I can probably do myself. I was told you line up the prop shaft with the rudder when is straight. Is it that simple or is there a more precise way to do this ?

Also, what type of silicone or sealer do they use between the strut and the bottom of the boat to keep it water tight ?

Use Your existing bolt holes, there should be little to no play which means you will just leave it where is lays. Use 3M 5200 Underwater sealant on the strut and bolt holes
