    You must be rolling penta drive. Yeah all it takes is a nice size stick if you hit it right. Or its eaten away a bit?

    No fun at all. Hoping insurance covers it because that fork ain't coming out without "making some room" in the engine bay. She's all seized up. :mad:

    Not a chance I can be 200+ into a boat. I'm already in way over my head here.

    Mind you with a 20k bill every god damn season I'll get there soon enough. F***

    I hear ya, Can that not be take out once the the leg is removed? If I remember correctly it just came out when they took my Volvo leg off.

    This video makes it look easy but I am guessing your access on the inside is not great

    If we pull the turbo you might be able to get a straw back there. Not sure if that'll do it.

    Damn that totally sucks. Whats the path forward, does the leg ultimately need replacing? Hope all goes well with the insurance claim!
