Just had a 650 Pfaff motor put in my 27' world class V bottom before the economy went to shit and am now stuck with the bravo 1. I was told I can basically use my bravo 1 case and rebuild the inners with XR drive components. Is this the best way for the money or are there some other select pieces I can just use to strengthen my drive? I am just trying to find the best way I can do this while not having a huge budget now days. Any ideas?

I would suggest calling Max Machine Worx in LHC. They have alot of experience in beefing up drives. The other alternative is Imco in San Dimas. They have components and also offer complete drives. Another idea may be to buy a takeoff drive that has been lightly used (imco or mmw)

Yes you can convert your bravo to an XR but depending on how old it is there may be some machine work needed or a new top cap needed?
