I stopped at a friends house yesterday and he showed me what was left of his outdrive. The interior of the case was severley scratched/galled and the gears were all chewed up. He basically wants to replace the entire outdrive unit. Local dealer gave him a quote of $4,000 to replace it. He said he found a place in Worcester, MA that will do a direct swap for $1,500. All he told me was it was a Mercruiser 165 Alpha One Outdrive. He is very handy and can install it himself. We live in the Wester Massachusetts area so where would be a good place to start looking?
Can any of you New Englanders help me (him) out?
