so i have a minor problem on the st185...something loose actually...it's the dust cover on the front propeller shaft. and well what happens is there a gingaling gingaling ,say it out loud, it will help to figure it out lol...so i'm trying to figure what is supposed to hold it there originally...i just kinda pushed it back in place and the noise then stoped...but it's likely to happen again...

It is just pressed on there. I had the same issue.

Is there a way to change the rubber bushing that it's pressed on to? I'm pretty sure it's all dried up and shrunk a bit...

Edit : there is no rubber bushing it seems... But I still don't understand how it supposed to stay there... I'll have to look at another gt4..If I can find one lol http://img.tapatalk.com/d/12/11/05/8eve3ada.jpg

Also is it normal that the drive shaft has some play when I turn it by hand?

Yes, it should have a little play.
