Sterndrive Engineering (SEI) offers a transom repair kit for MerCruiser's® Alpha One® and Gen II. These repair kits include all of the gaskets, oil seals, and o-rings, as well as the gimble bearing, that are necessary for a transom repair. These repair kits are often a transom saver for an older boat. The parts included in SEI's transom repair kit are fully interchangeable with MerCruiser's® Alpha One® and Gen II stern drive-outdrive systems.
A knocking or clicking noise coming from behind the boat is often the sign of a bad gimble bearing. The SEI boat transom repair kit includes a new gimble bearing. Proper installation of the gimble bearing is critical. SEI has a very good technical article on performing a boat transom repair that can be found on this site.
A leaking boat is also a sign of a problem with the transom. The SEI transom repair kit includes the necessary gaskets, o-rings, and oil seals to eliminate leaks.
SEI's price on the transom repair kit is very good. This price is the result of buying direct from manufacturers and eliminating the middleman. All of the parts come from reputable suppliers and are made to SEI's specifications. SEI makes transom repair more affordable than ever.
SEI has been in the outdrive business since 2003. The company was founded by Greg Pickren. Mr. Pickren also is the owner and founder of the company SBT which is the largest supplier of PWC engines in the world. Justin Webb is the General Manager of SEI and was previously employed by Konrad Marine and GLM. Mr. Webb is somewhat of an expert in transom repairs and has been a transom saver for many boats.
In addition to transom repair kits, Sterndrive Engineering also offers a complete line of hydraulic parts compatible with the MerCruiser® stern drive. The products offered include hydraulic pumps, trim cylinders, hoses, fittings, and other accessories.
SEI's stern drives come standard with a three-year, fault-free warranty. This means that the unit is covered for any failure that requires the stern drive to be repaired or replaced. Run it without lubrication, crash into a stump, suck up some fishing line, it does not matter, the SEI stern drive is always covered. SEI believes this warranty is one of the best warranties ever offered for a stern drive. Peace of mind while on the water is important, and SEI goes the extra distance to make sure that our customers can rely on our stern drives.
Sterndrive Engineering is the largest supplier of replacement outdrives in the world. Thank you for your interest in the company and its transom repair products.
