  • DT 9.9 1988 Suzuki Lower unit problem. Drive shaft bearing housing broke.

    This does not look good for me. I picked up a 1988 DT9.9 Suzuki recently in pristine condition. I pressure tested the lower unit and found there were rusted out oil seals in the driveshaft bearing housing. . Trying to remove the bearing housing is where it went wrong.. The housing broke off flush with the top of the gearcase itself. Now I have the bottom half of the bearing housing broken and well seated in the gearcase itself. Has anyone run into this situation and how was it remedied?

    I put it aside but now want to get at it. I will try lots of heat and a bearing puller slide hammer. Been soaked in the meantime with Kano and other penetrants . Would be a lot easier with the drive shaft out. Any suggestions on that? Can it just be yanked from the top? I see there is not a nut on the bottom but there are some clips.
