i usually do all my own work but I was busy at the time so I had corona marine put a gimbal bearing, u-joints , and bellows in my boat. A year later here I am with a destroyed drive. The bellows never sealed because the transom shield is no good. There is no way the bellows ever sealed which is why the u-joints failed at 3900rpm and exploded the drive. If they would have told me the transom shield was bad I would have replaced it at that time. My guess is they broke it during gimbal bearing replacement or while prying off the old bellows. Just towed the boat there and they told me to pound sand. Guess I'm pulling the engine and complete drive.

there is a fair amount of sterndrives currently on craigslist right now. Not sure it saves a significant amount of $$. transom assemblies and complete drives for both mercruiser and volvo.

My first thought was small claims court but that's way too hard to prove.

Look on Offshore & performance boats forums lots of spare parts there. Or contact Kiwi Dave in Dzna Ooint he might have used parts & he's the man on stern drives.
