I have an '08 Supra 22V with 230 hours on it, the dripless packing has began to start leaking. I have heard a few people tell me it might just need tightening, others say it may need to be repacked and the motor alignment might be off. I have performed all the maintenace myself except for the 20 hr service I took into the dealer. Fluids, impeller, filters, winterization have been handled myself. However, I have never re-aligned the motor/shaft since the 20 hr service. This possibly could be why it has began to start leaking....???

A have a few questions...

Does anyone have a link with some pictures of someone performing these repairs? (ie: tightening clamps or replacing packing)

A good recommendation of a marine repair facility in the Sacramento/Roseville area? I wont mention the name of the shop I first went to, but they could not program my ECU correctly when my o2 sensor went out, so I am little hesitant to take it back to them. American Marine Powersports in Rancho Cordova is no longer in business, this is where I took it last time and was satisfied with them but they are out of business.

How much can I expect to pay if they need to replace the entire packing? I called one shop and they said a minimum of 2 hours labor + parts, does this sound about right?

Thanks for any information.
