I have a 1998 Monterey with 2 4.3GL volvo pentas, SX outdrive 1.66 ratio. I need to replace at least one of the outdrives due to severe corrosion - my mechanic tells me a 2003 OMC Cobra SX with 1.66 ratio will not work, but I think he is wrong. Is this not really the same outdrive but with just a different manuf label?

Hmmm, I'm not sure why it would not work... I think they are the same as well. The service kit is the same...

Did your mechanic tell you why?
