    Default b1 vs xr gear case.

    I was talking to a local marine mechanic that likes to build his own out drives and he was telling me he prefers the b1 gear case over the xr. He says the b1 case is thicker than the xr and he mills out the b1 case to accept the xr gears. Is this a better way? It's a little bit cheaper than getting a xr case.

    i dont think this is the better way, the bravo XR has a steel tower in the upper case that helps support the vertical shaft.

    for the price of a new bravo XR your damn near there for an SCX, thats what i am heading toward, SCX upper, SC lower
