Lower Unit Failure
Taken from Macgregorsailors.com
In chronological order. My Honda 50 hp lower unit had an oil leak somewhere. It turned out to be at the water pump seals around the drive shaft. But because I am a DIY'r without scruples I tried to remove the lower unit first. It did have nasty looking corrosion around the threads of the locking nut so I figured it was due for maintenance anyway. As of today when I write this, March 28, 2010, all is very well and very tight.
