Out on the weekend, suddenly 10 seconds of squeal, no drive to the prop, long story in getting boat back onto trailer. Now have a set of melted top bevel gears. and another job to sort out. SO IT DOES PAY TO CHECK OIL LEVILS. I was too interested in my rebuilt engine !!!

I have a stern powr 103 I need a 1.6 top gear set. If you know where I could get one I would appreciate it.

Try MaryVille Marine on 001 (810) 364-7653 . They stock most Sternpowr parts at approx 40% less than our local dealer here and they are on the same continent as you! Good luck
