I've finally managed to gain access to the back end of my Volvo Penta
MD17C, which I am in the process of removing. Here's what I found on the end of the transmission
, and I've never seen one of these before.
How does it come apart so I can disconnect the shaft and pull it out, leaving the engine
to be removed afterwards?
It appears to be a collett arrangement with a big locking nut on the end.
Looking at it, it appears that the collett arrangement is attached to the rear coupling (fluted aluminum
casting) with 4 bolts. If I undo those, is that what separates the engine
from the prop shaft? Or do I have to undo that collett and somehow pull the shaft out through the back end?
Like I said, this is a new one on me.
