  • SE106 Replacement Advice

    Be advised that when replacing your original Alpha unit you will probably have to re-adjust your shift cable to make it work. Mine was not even close. Also be aware that when assembling the lower unit to the upper DO NOT I repeat DO NOT use the provided washer that goes over the splined shifter shaft. USE THE ORIGINAL WASHER FROM YOUR ALPHA UNIT. It is much thicker and will hold the shift tube in the correct position and not let it slip down and bind up. I know, the first time out the unit popped out of forward gear and bound up. Luckily I have 2 engines and made it back to the dock, after having it hoisted and installing the original washer all is fine. I should ask for $100 back the marina charged me to make the repair.
