Thanks Steve,

Everyone I talked to is reluctant to give a price until they tear it down, guess I dont blame them. I am just going to bite the bullett and get it done locally. Let me know if ya get back down this winter, we have been running North lately and having a blast.

Thanks for the offer Tom,

I have shipped a few lowers before, and with the 25" shaft its not fun building the crate. I believe I have a local guy who will take care of me pretty good. You dont happen to have any 3 liter propshafts laying around do you??

Considering trying one of these.....

$800 with a 3 year warranty, heck I will have that just in parts alone in rebuilding mine, then I can sell my Dual water pickup case for probably half that.

Tom @ USA Power is reasonable but GOOD. I'd give him a call because he helped me out when I blew the case on my 300 Promax. Atleast the guy is honest and will give you your old parts back in case you have any questions. Merc Certified too.. (305) 232-1123
