Another alternative,tho it is more money,is the genuine Merc reman drive,lots cheaper than new.I swear when you take it out of the box it is exactly like a brand new one. I asked a Merc tech guy about and he smiled and said they are actually brand new drives,just marked reman so they can sell them cheaper and compete with SEI and others. Can anyone confirm that? Put one beside a new one and there is no difference,and same warranty. I just tell my customers "You pays yo money and you takes yo choice".It is the customers call. My thoughts-nice boat-Merc reman. Old boat-SEI.
