I just bought my first sterndrive boat, I've always run outboards before so this is new to me. I'm looking over the maintenance intervals for my volvo penta 290 DP, and trying to get a sense for how complicated the annual u-joint greasing and bellows replacement really is. I'd like to be able to do it myself, but I'm a little worried about getting the removal and re-install right.
So, I'm curious how many guys do this project themselves and what they have to say about it. Has it been worth the effort to do it yourself or is it better to take the outdrive to a pro?
Thanks for the tips~
