I was able to spend some time in the shop today and finished machining the parts for the drive shaft housing. This part holds the prop side seal, bearing and lock collar. Since the housing side bearing and lock collar will be inside the housing, I had to make the prop side housing in two pieces, so it will come apart....in the event I need to service any of the parts.
