    71C 1:1 . Rotational grinding noise (sounds to me like bearing noise). I can rotate shaft ,in neutral , with propeller and hear noise. Engine does not need to be running. I'm thinking output bearing. Noise is there in gear (forward or reverse) when underway.Any ideas or anyone else have this problem?

    It could be broken clutches or plates too. You will have to dismantle it either way, so it will probably be obvious.

    One source for parts is ebasic power. That's where I get my velvet drive parts. There are service manuals posted online. Just search on google and you will get several hits. Not hard to rebuild. Good luck.

    Yeah, they are quality parts and reasonable. I did find a really good price on the output bearing at Hale Marine, however (about $50 cheaper than anyone else)

    You can buy the bearings at any supplier. It doesn't need to be a marine store.

    I figured that as soon as I got the nomenclature off the bearing, it might be available at the local bearing supplier. I think it's just a standard roller bearing
