Suzuki Gearbox Rebuild
Always have your Gearbox serviced once a year, even if you only used it twice in that year.
The ocean is a harsh environment & you could potentially pick up fishing line & trace, or hit reefs that can bend your prop shaft, which can damage or distort your seals & allow salt water to enter your Gearbox.
Have you had a recent prop strike?
During a service we look for damaged seals, bent prop shafts, damaged props, drain & check the oil for water.
Think.......140HP, drive shaft, connected to transmission, smaller than your 70HP car.
The Gearbox works very hard in a harsh environment, any sign of Gear wear or water we recommend that you get Gearbox repaired soon as possible.
Parts & repairs were recently carried out on a 140HP Suzuki costing the customer $2400.
