    I own an 03 Eliminator Daytona with XR drives, Sportmaster lowers, ITS and Merc Racing stand off boxes and need to change the bellows. I am looking for for instriuctions how to as my stern drive manual does not cover stand off boxes. I have already removes the drives. It appears the bellows is attached nearest the stern with a hose clamp. The bellows at the end closest to the drive appears to have a press fit retaining ring.

    Do I need to remove the bell housing to change the bellows?

    The hinge pins appear different than a Bravo one drive. Is there a special tool similiar to the Bravo one tool I need to buy?

    Is ther a manual or some where on the Web that has instructions for this repair.

    I would appreciate any help Thank you for your time
