Tides Marine Spare Seal Carrier Kit

Tides Marine's Spare Seal Carriers were developed as a convenient device for storing spare lip seals on the propeller shaft between the SureSeal® and the propeller shaft coupling. These carriers (with spare lip seals) can be installed with each SureSeal.

The SureSeal design allows the vessel operator to replace worn lip seals in the housing with these spare lip seals without uncoupling the shaft from the transmission. If necessary, the worn lip seals may be replaced in the water – no haul-out required.

The spare lip seal carrier is a lightweight, two-piece composite housing which is clamped over the spare lip seals and onto the propeller shaft between the SureSeal and the propeller shaft coupling. They are available in both imperial and metric sizes.

Included in the Kit:

  • LIP SEAL 1750 (JMC 15557 LUP) x 1
  • KH-1750-00 x 1
  • HAT-1750 x 1

Before Ordering

When ordering a spare seal carrier, you must first determine if you have a SureSeal (sold after year 2000) or a StrongSeal (sold prior to year 2000). Please note the image below. The lip seals for some shaft sizes are NOT interchangeable.

Tides Marine StrongSeal and SureSeal

CAUTION: The spare seal carriers SHOULD NOT TOUCH THE SureSeal. The spare seal carriers should be located on the shaft at least 1" from the SureSeal housing.

Installation


Tides Marine Spare Seal Carrier Kit

MOUNTING ON THE SHAFT

  1. Determine where the Spare Seal Carrier will be located on the shaft (minimally 1" from the SureSeal) and be certain there are no keyways, nicks or corrosion in this area which could damage the lip seal.
  2. Separate the two halves of the carrier housing by removing the screws holding them together. Remove the spare lip seal.
  3. Carefully press each spare seal onto the tapered cone of the red seal protector-smooth side (with part number imprint on the lip seal) first.
  4. Slide the red protector and seal(s) onto the shaft - seal side first with garter spring facing the rear of the boat.
  5. Remove the red seal protector and confirm that each spare seal is facing the same direction as the lip seal in the SureSeal (garter spring facing the rear of the boat).
  6. Reassemble the Spare Seal Carrier housing over the lip seal(s) and around the shaft. The long shoulder on one side of the Carrier housing should face away from the SureSeal.
  7. Check to be sure the Spare Seal Carrier housing is at least 1" from the SureSeal and tighten the assembly screws. Properly installed, the Spare Seal Carrier shoud grip the shaft tightly and turn freely with it.

SEAL REPLACEMENT

  1. Inspect the exposed shaft surface between the Spare Seal Carrier and the SureSeal unit. Be certain that it is clean as well as free of any nicks or burrs which might damage the spare lip seal. If necessary, you may polish the shaft using 280 to 300 grit wet/dry sandpaper or emery cloth working radially around the shaft.
  2. Remove the screws from the Spare Seal Carrier and separate the halves exposing the spare replacement lip seal(s).
  3. Remove the 5 cap screws from the front of the SureSeal housing.
  4. Slide the cap forward passing over the replacement lip seal.
  5. Separate the split retaining washer and remove it from the shaft. Keep the split washer handy.
  6. Pry out the old lip seal with a small flat bladed screwdriver working alternately on opposite sides. Cut the old lip seal off the shaft with diaginal pliers or side cutter.
  7. Clean out the lip seal pocket area in the SureSeal housing with a fiber sponge
  8. Carefully slide the new lip seal down down the shaft and into the chamfered opening in the front of the SureSeal housing.
  9. Return the split retaining washer to the shaft in front of the lip seal you just slid into the SureSeal housing.
  10. Fit the split retaining washer into it's recess inside the cap. Slide cap and washer towards the housing until they touch the lip seal.
  11. Align the holes and start the cap screws. Alternately tighten the cap screws in a criss-cross pattern, driving the lip seal into the opening. The lip seal is seated properly when cap and collar touch. Do NOT over tighten the screws. Hand tighten only.
  12. If the carrier contained 2 lip seals, the carrier housing should be reassembled over the remaining lip seal as before and positioned in it's original location and tightened fully. If not, store the Carrier Housing for future use.
