When doing bellows, seals etc to senders have to come off?

As the question asked, do you have to remove senders to do full drive service?   Should there me a labor cost to put new senders on?

    I can change the unjoint shift cable and exhaust bellows plus change the shift cable it self and the gimble bearing all without removing the sending units    5 hrs per drive.

    If the oil hose is fine don't change it.   If that needs changed the pivot housing has to be removed. Thus the sending units have to be removed.

    I know I'm leaking major oil from port side through transom.   Not sure where the problem is.

    Gimbal on starboard was replaced year and half ago and it is shot again.  I'm assuming bellow but I don't get water in.

    Your oil hose in the pivot housing could be bad.  Are you leaking oil into the water? If no signs probably the upper seal on the u joint shaft

    The upper seal is very easy to replace

    Haven't seen anything in the water.  Just dumps the whole reservoir tank into bilge via transom.
