    Default Bravo one upper rebuild

    Hi guys, last year my drive started making a gear wine and small vibration that would come and go. Feels to me like the bearings are starting to go. Is rebuilding the upper case something I should attempt. I am fairly mechanical, but mainly worked on v-drives. Anyone have any useful info, or reputable shops in the SoCal area I could talk to. Thanks

    your ability is probably fine but you need special tools,if you could get your hands on the tools you could pull it apart inspect it and put it back together in a afternoon.do the magnets have any metal on them,have you pulled the drive and checked the gimbal bearing you may want to start there.If you want to talk give me a call 928-855-7420 ask for Bart or send me an email [email protected] good luck

    Bart,

    I changed the gimbal bearing 3 seasons ago and grease it regularly. I put another bravo one on the boat and took it out to eliminate any questions about something else causing the noise and vibration. The other drive doesnt make any noise or vibration. I will definetly be contacting you. thanks for the reply

    I would seperate the upper and lower to see which is the problem. The lower is easier to repair but as Bart said you need the special tools to check shiming.
