Had the same problem with my Yamaha SHO. Took it to Rockwall Marine ( it ain't as easy as you might think ) and had them fix it. They also had to replace the boot where it connects to the transom. Total cost, parts and labor
$140. Saved me all the stress and headaches. Those guys are good and honest as the day is long.
