Proper operating outdrive oil temperature is crucial for long life. Unfortunately, most stock and high-performance boats today do not offer the ability to monitor outdrive oil temperature, but those in the know can read the signs visually by discoloration and deposits left on the top of the outdrive. An outdrive cooling shower is the perfect cost effective way to add years of service life to your boats outdrive.

This system distributes a continuous supply of cool water onto the upper portion of the outdrive. Tests have shown that extra cooling like this can double bearing life and the service life of the drive oil by lowering an operating temperature of 220° (more than enough to boil water) as much as 30%. It also prevents oil foaming, the primary cause of oil breakdown, which can lead to drive failures. This condition is found broadly across all applications of sterndrives where demands on the drive are consistent and or pushed to deliver maximum performance. As the oil temperature reaches near boiling the oil wants to move away from the main upper support bearing in an effort to escape the excess heat. This is where the oil is needed most.

If there is a continuous need to remove a white chalky deposit from the top half of the drive casing, or steam is generated in the transom area each time the boat comes off plane, it's probably running too hot. The outdrive's cast aluminum construction does not respond favorably to the expansion and rapid contraction caused when a 220° drive is plunged into cool water. Under normal operating temperatures, manufacturers recommend that the oil in their drives be changed every 50 hours. For some of us, 50 hours can be a few weeks' worth of use. Temperature is the key to breaking down the lubrication quality of the outdrive's oil. If you value and care for your boat then demand an outdrive cooling shower every boat needs one.

Stainless Steel "Sport Tech" Outdrive Cooling Shower

The advent of sleek modern boat styling has brought the need for a smooth,fitted,exotic styled drive shower. Something that blended seamlessly with today's modern boat styling. But looks were only half of the battle performance is the real reason you purchase a drive shower and through extensive testing we have developed the finest drive shower produced today. First our engineers computer modeled the exact dimensions and size of the bravo out drive. Next we spent hundreds of hours studying the water flow characteristics as they entered the drive shower cap to develop a series of water diverters and dams to allow equal water distribution to virtually flood the top of the bravo outdrives factory bearing cap. By retaining the proper tolerance between the shower and the outdrive cap we are able to literally wash the heat away from the out drive providing maximum heat reduction. This unit is coupled with our exclusive 80 degree high volume pick up and -10 stainless steel braided hose and best of all it's virtually a stunning part in the end. So if you are looking for a shower that’s actually truly engineered to perform there’s only one the Sport Tech shower.

NOTE: For Integrated Transom Assembly (ITS) applications, please call us to get the correct hose assembly. Also note, when installing on ANY Integrated Transom Assembly (ITS) Caution must be used to make sure the trim limit switches are adjusted to the point to eliminate any potential interference between the drive shower cap and the ITS cover
