You say the propshaft seals are leaking?
You got some fishing line in them didn't you?
By removing the bearing carrier you will be able to
replace the seals. Not a big job, if you have a
puller and some patience. Get a service manual
by Seloc or Haynes, and read up on the lower unit
section. You may want to replace the water pump
impeller while you are down there.
