    There is a known issue with the SD25 saildrives which is almost the same as the SD20 and there is a "service advisory" issued for both. They recommend every 250hrs the tapered pin be checked as it may fall out. Yamar ref: YMTQTB16-066 dated Sept 1st 2016.

    Only need to drain some oil just to below the level of the gear shifter.

    Sorry for the delay in providing his update.
    Straightforward job really-just a tad fiddly lining up the assembly whilst working through a very small aperture.
    It turned out there was nothing wrong with the pin( although it was due for inspection as advised by Rattler#12).

    This all came about because of lack of drive in forward and reverse. The guilty party was the prop which had gone walk about .
    Thanks to everybody for their advice.

    What size prop - I have one from a SD20 after adding a folding one. I have the nuts and washers as well?

    Thank you for your interest but the prop has been replaced.
