Default Bravo 1 upper unit rebuild questions




I pulled my drive apart. Vertical shaft is broke but I have a few questions. Is there a bearing kit for a bravo one upper unit and a seal kit? Any help is greatly appreciated. Also are the races where the thrust collars on the shaft ride.. Are they replaceabe or is it part of the cap and the upper unit? Can anyone lead me to a parts blow up of the drive assy with part numbers? Thanks in advance.

The. Clutch shaft bearings are replaceable, you can just drive the one in the case out the bottom, the one in the cap, you need to use a slide hammer and puller, there’s a puller sold by merc to remove the driven gear races on the bearing towers

Can you afford to pay for this twice???
If things are not put together properly with the proper shims You will be fixing it again SOON.
Have someone repair it that has the proper tools and knowledge.
