    Posted: September-28-2020 at 3:21pm
First time poster.  I have a 2005 Super Air Nautique that I’ve owned for 14 years.  I just lost forward in my transmission this past weekend (just over a 1000 hours).  It happened fairly quickly.  Transmission made a slight screeching sound, then started slipping.  I was able to limp back to the houseboat, but lost it completely when while trying to limp back to the dock. I’m now trying to remove the v-drive to get to the transmission and have a question I thought someone here might be able to help answer.  I’ve removed the gas tank and disconnected the shaft coupler from the v-drive, but I’m wondering the correct way to remove the v-drive mounts.  Is unbolt the 4 mounts from the frame and pulling the mounts with the v-drive the best approach (see image below)?  Also besides the 6 bolts connecting the v-drive to the transmission do I need to remove the 4 internal nuts as shown in the picture below?  I saw a similar thread from a newer boat but the v-drive appears significantly different.  Thanks in advance for any advice.

As usual, it turned out much more difficult than a normal removal.  The bottom bolt of the six was rusted to a round nub.  In the end I had to completely remove the v-drive mounts to have enough room to cut the nut off.  The internal bolts mentioned in the previous post didn't need to be removed. Since the v-drive slides off the shaft at an angle on my 2005 SAN I believe if one was going to reuse the mounts removing the mounting bolts as shown in the previous post and then removing the mounts from the v-drive would be the best method to minimize the amount of realignment that will be required.  I’ll be sending the v-drive off to Walter’s Machine Co. for hopefully a proper rebuild.  Mine weighs 99lbs as a point of reference. Next I need to figure out the proper method to support the rear of the engine while removing the transmission...

If you have the facility it might be a better option to pull the motor and transmission as a unit. Fighting with the transmission to get it off and on in the boat could be a bear. Something to consider.

I also need to address the motor mounts so this might be a much easier approach.  Thanks for the suggestion.
