    Hey guys, does anyone have a good part number for the bushing and seal in the tailshaft housing of a NP208? The bushing I got from NAPA fit so bad I had to loctite it in, and it leaks worse than the old one that I took out. Any help would be great.

    I used the bushing/seal kit from napa on my 208. Fit perfectly and fit like a charm. Sorry I don't have the P/N anymore.

    How hard is it to install the bushing and seal in the tail shaft housing of a NP208?

    Just carefully press or chisel out the old bushing. It requires removing the tail housing from the 208. Be very careful not to score or damage the aluminum housing that holds the bushing.
