I took the servo and coated the outside with epoxy ,all around the seams and around the wire lead real good, then went to hardware store and got a flat rubber washer that was just big enough to fit over the output shaft of the servo. Grease the washer real good and install on servo then install you horn and tighten .I tested this setup for three hours in a test tank and not a drop of water in the servo. Easy to do and dont have to fight the linkages. I hope this helps you out canpan.
