Does anyone out there know of systemic peoblems with OMC lower units. I know they were pre-Bomber. We are now looking at second rebuild after total of thirty hours. Will another Rebuild help or should we cut our losses and try to deal for a Yammie
Any input is appreciated.

Yes they did have problems with their lower units.
It seems the material they made some of the gears with was to soft to handle the torque & it has now been cleared up.
I'd give Bomb a call as it's a known problem.

It sounds like these gears were some of the the thousands of poorly made OMC parts that Bombardier discarded and advertized as "having to re-apply for the job"!
