    Just when I thought it was safe to go back in the water.

    It's been a week and I still have NOT received my replacement driveshaft or my refund!! I was told to expect both the shaft and my refund last Thursday. Is there a problem?

    A happy ending

    That would be great!
    I appreciate SEI's efforts thus far, and I'm glad that it turned out that it was the incorrect drive for my motor and NOT a problem with your drive!

    Please call or email me...

    Gear lube leaking from water intake screen

    I have a new 305, hasn't been in the water yet, and I just noticed gear lube dripping from the water intake screen. I'm assuming this is bad, but hoping otherwise. Anyone?
