    I have never seen your drive. I hope someone here can help. Please document your build with some pics. I have a pair of dana 90s which I think is similar.

            Hi everybody!

            Thank you for your response, the problem is that i rebuilt with brand new bearings and seals the lower part of my sterndrive and I think I should do the upper to... The real reason is that last year, with another boat (silverline Nantucket 17V) i've lost oil in the port. Fire men came, with policemen and it cost fast 2'000 dollards for all of those people in order to clean ... I don't really want to loose oil again in Swisslakes!
            May be someone has some documentation about this drive, i'm going to wait a moment.

            Bye
