All evidence I have so far, is that this setup is already built in SD 50 installation
so nothing to do.
I verified that actually there is no water. Something was on the bottom of old oil saildrive bottle and I assumed is water. I have turned bottle around, left couple of days, and opened so whatever was at bottom came out. Seem only darker oil and no traces of water.
As taking out boat is 3k in sydney
and new SD 60 is 5-6k, I will not take boat out to change seals except when due for service
. Oil changes seem quite good temporary measure, when needed.
