Default skegs

don't think craig does that. i thought herring was doing it but don't know now that he's been bought out.
don't know if that even worth it unless racing supercat or something like that.
either way craig would know where to go, he knows almost everybody in the racing world.

like beckley said, craig fixes alot of these things for alot of other people.
i don't think anybody even comes close to how long craig has been doing drives.
wow craig must be really old!!!

Mark Wilson, who is on the board, does the skeg blueprinting as does Herring.

How big of a job is it to convert a wet sump to dry? If one was wanting dry sump drives is it feasible to do the conversion (if you don't have 6's at all) or just look for dry sump 6's. Just asking because I've seen wet sumps for sale much cheaper than dry......

I think its well worth it.If you dont have wet sumps allready it just depends on the market.Just depends on other work needed on the used drives.Randy had totally rebuilt my drives,bearings,gears,seals,U-joints,some shafts the year before.The conversion cost 12K with the converted skigs. Randy with Marine Drives has been around since the 80s or earlier.

I do the oil changes regularly, but I'm sending my 1075's in at 125 hours and just figure its piece of mind to do the drives also. I hate to break and one less thing at the end of its life is a good thing in my opinion.
