I need a new gear case. Somehow, my old one is destroyed. He said I must have hit something.....hard. :angry: I don't get that as I haven't hit anything hard, but I will chalk it up to stupid tax anyway. So, the option's are: 1) Dump the old motor and spend more than I can afford for a new one -- which isn't really an option unless someone has a brand new 4-stroke honda for about $5K 2) Install a remanufactured gear case which includes water pump, etc for $3K 3) Find a used one and install for about half that. 4) Make it a paddle boat The motor in question is a 115 Evinrude that is now 12 years old. I have replaced the powerhead twice before I got a little smarter and disconnected the automatic oil injection. I guess I'm wrestling with options 2 & 3. Any opinions from the group?
