Go to TNT. Matts the best! Never lost a drive and he takes care of mine. It will cost some cash but it will be a fair deal.

I remember when the #6's came out, they were advertised as "Bullet Proof", so what happened ? Was it a armored piercing bullet that got you ? Just kidding obviously, good luck

Agreed about TNT Matt will give you an exact estimate on cost and time and live with it Prices are fair but at least you get what you pay for not always the case anymore

I have delt with Skip at MRD for years on my speedmaster drives . He's out in Long Island NY , always had good luck with the repairs and prices seemed reasonable . Made it a lot easier for me I could just drive them over to him .

"Ocean, Thanks for the reply but do you really think I can get them rebuilt for 5k Each???? My Bravos cost almost that much..."

Vern just got done with my wet sump, replaced gears and propshaft with extremely low hour (look new, no wear on shaft at all) parts, all new bearings and seals. Bill was 4K.
Vern does all of Teague's stuff too.
I might be lucky, but I just bought a new set of 1.6 gears for $180, yep, you read right. (from Tres Martin)

Wow .330 hours from some 850 s and sixes need full rebuilds ?

I will never understand why more people don' run Arnesons.

I know that not every bottom has the means to carry the bow without the trim but It just blows me away that a 30 thousand dollar drive is only good for so few of hours with that power.

i had heard after they went dry sump the sixes required more frequent rebuild intervals, some as low as fifty to a hundred hours for a freshen up.

I had him go through my wet-sump #6's @ 350 hours. They had 1200+HP in front of them for 325 of those hours. They were fine, but it was good to find that out!!

Good guy, good work, No BS!!!
