Replacing Seals on a Volvo 130S Saildrive

Has anybody changed the seals on a Volvo 130S saildrive? The oil has gone milky and the level has increased leading me to believe there is a leak through the seal(s?) down the prop end. Is it a job you could do at low tide with a bit of mechanical knowledge and a couple of beers?

I've moved this thread to Engines and Propulsion Systems
The Tech Support & Site Help where it was previously posted is for questions or help related to the the technical workings of the forum ...like how do I post a picture...
You may get greater exposure here as well.
Good luck with your sail drive.

Can't speak directly on the 130s, but on our 120s it's a fairly simple operation. The parts manuals (IPB) show all the seals etc so if you're half-handy it will not be a big deal.

Thanks Mark.
Can you point me to a site for the manual?

JJ,
Checked the Manta group files but only found the S120 manual. I think if you search Marine Parts Express they will at least have the parts illustration to go by.

Maybe some others here can step up with the repair manual pdf file....?
