I could be wrong, but I can't imagine that not leaking foot oil or allowing contaminating water in to the foot.... Have you checked your lube levels? Have you drained the foot to see if any water has gotten in? I guess its possible that the crack could have missed inner gear housing wall. Best of luck to you....

PS I saw that once before when somebody was almost full out and hit a long piece of 2 inch nylon rope.

Not sure, but this is my best guess: Boat on trailer since last fall. I returned to Orange Beach -first time since before Thanksgiving - to find motor trimmed all the way down to the ground, boat vandalized and some items missing. Was mad about the stolen items and only later noticed the crack.

Its due to corrosion between the spanner nut and the housing. Common problem with Yamaha's and Mercury's. Just too much pressure and the housing pops. Its a long way from the oil cavity. Just have the welding shop weld it like it is and get another few years out of it. You can buy a new lower for less than what a housing and labor to swap it over.

It is repairable. It is caused by corrosion. You have to have the special tools to remove the bearing carrier and we do these repairs.

My Yamaha 115 did the same thing. Like said before corrosion. I had it welded and it lasted about 2 more years before the crack opened back up.
