I also have another boat that has XR's on it. And they are definitely the weak link since I have 900's as power. So lowers for the XR??? Heck Yes!
TRS are great for certain power levels... Under 550 they will be fine... Over that they are time bombs

Great to know! I'll be safe running the TRS drives then. They are just 454's in the boat.

pretty sure you would be surprised at the interest in the -2 crescent style lower units.
I would speed up 3 projects now.

Default Better Gears

I would buy better metal gears if available,since old TRS gears are just picking up the hardened surface then destroying themselves!!! Just bought 2 sets of BRAND NEW gears but finding someone to clearance and install them in the case is another story as that is the most important part of the process with old or new gears!!! Anybody available up here in Ct?????

If you have exploded gears get a case that has not had explosion they are weak as it is

Default Blown Gear

When I say blown up I am meaning a chipped tooth or metal picking up from the hardened finish on the gear!!! I always check to make sure the bearing carrier fits tight in the case!!! My opinion now is that a installer who knows his stuff is needed!!!
