Aqua Drive vibration

Hi, Just purchased a 1994 Gozzard 44 with a 82 HP. Just the port side of the Aqua Drive thrust bushing is vibrating. Before I tear into this bushing was hoping someone has some words of wisdom on adjustments, replacement parts, etc. I have the original manual and everything seems to be in the right place.

The model I have is a 19100.

Thanks

Re: Aqua Drive vibration

Check every nut and bolt is tight. I had this problem mid ocean, windless and doing some motoring. One of the 2 rubber buffered bolts holding the aft section to the thrust bulkhead was loose. If all was good and over a short time the vibration develops then something is loose and dancing where it should not be.
