Took one this morning. Oh, on the boat? Yup. Came with the drive I bought from Kaama. Not sure what brand. I have another one sitting on the bench that works better (off my old, busted up drive).

Had an upper failure last year on one of my alphas, mech said heat related......took cap off oil smelled "burnt to hell".......this year different mechanic other drive, replaced bent propshaft (hit something) had him checkout the rest of the drive....replaced the upper bearing set because they were barely hanging in there, his reason for bearings gone bad....."heat".....put the Simrek drive showers on ..........
Before....after a day of boating I would pull the boat out of the water and feel the drives.....signifigant heat.......thats after the boat sitting in the water at the dock motors off for 5 or 10 min while I went and got the truck!!.....now with the showers......COLD.......same temp as the prop..........doug

I noticed the "chalking" on the upper gear housing from evaporated water and decided to shower. I cleaned the residue off the housing, changed to Mobil 1, and installed the "summit" shower (Halo did not look like it would work with the IMCO steering) and the chalk has not returned. No failures before but heat cannot help anything, particularly aluminum.
