Now I have to hide the Mercury boxes from my wife and STECZ!

What I was told is Mercury went to the (2) piece design to simplify manufacturing and inventory. They built all the lowers the same and the top part of the drive shaft was the only part that needed to be changed for different drive heights. This worked well for the shorter drive height, 15,20,25. The taller motors had problems with the shaft wobbling and creating back lash. Because of the problems with the taller motor set-ups they went back to the original design....1 piece.
I was also told on my 20" set-up to not worry about changing out the (2) piece, that it was not a concern or problem.

Sounds logical to me, anyone know anything different.
