Dirk, I believe the protection device is still part of the current drive. Is it worth carrying a spare? How did you break yours?
Sorry for the delay in replying, I missed your post.
Probably not worth carrying a spare, you have to split the drive to replace it. It broke due to shifting whilst engine revving to high, one of the pitfalls of twin lever controls, and I believe the reason for most of the Yanmar/Bravo 3 breakages.
You might also be interested to know that a couple of days ago I was informed by AS at Volvo that they are discontinuing the DPX in a couple of months time. Very sad to hear that!
