ZF Hurth service center help KY

2000 MariStar 230 VRS
I need to have my transmission serviced and re-sealed. I have removed it from the boat and I have spoken to M/C dealer in Louisville and Cincinnatti
I don't want to use a generic transmission shop but cant find any help in or near Central Kentucky.
Any suggestions??????

These folks have been mentioned from time to time here. Some folks have shipped their transmission there. I think they do a lot of work from all over.

It's all I got.....

My primary seal is leaking, I got too much water in the bilge while surfing and ruined the seal, now its leaking fluid into the bilge. Need to have a new seal installed......

If you have the trans out already you can do the re seal. The trans splits in half pretty easy and all the shafts and clutch pack come out like taking apart a jig saw puzzle. I thought I had more pics from my seal job I did but can't find them. These two are the only two I can find. First pic shows the trans split in half with an arrow pointing to the output shaft, the seal usually found leaking in a v drive. 2nd pic is a close up of the output shaft where the seal was riding. Mine was pitted pretty bad as this was a salt water boat that was sitting for a bunch of years with water in the bilge. If your shaft is pitted don't even consider shaft replacement, it's $1600 which is almost half the cost of a brand new trans! Go with a seal saver they work great. A seal saver is basically a thin metal ring that goes over the damaged shaft giving the new seal a nice clean, smooth area to ride on. Good Luck.

Doesn't that seal come out from the outside, without disassembly?

Its been a while but I'm pretty sure you can remove the seal without splitting the case.
