Item Details

  • MerCruiser Sterndrive Alpha One Lower Unit Complete Gearset 43-878087A4 (Pinion, Forward, Reverse) 
  • Used in MerCruiser MR & Gen I lower units 1983-1990 
    • These are the correct gears if your lower gearcase DOES NOT HAVE A PRELOAD PIN on top of the driveshaft
      • ****If your gearcase HAS A PRELOAD PIN, then these are not the correct gears*****
        • If you are looking for a 1970-1982 Gearset please contact me and I should be able to help.
  • Pinion Gear (17 Teeth): 43-42932 (Same as 43-89060)
  • Forward Gear (28 Teeth): 43-42933 ( Sometimes Stamped 17064-6022)
  • Reverse Gear (28 Teeth): 43-42934 / 43-824109A1 
  • Bearing Carrier 73020 / 73020C / 73020A14
    • This was the earlier style Bearing carrier, but it will still fit in the drive from this time period. You just have to use the Tab washer included.
  • Tab Washer 14-79447 (For use with 73020C Carrier)
  • Retainer Screw 79448 / 83201127
    • Don't worry too much about the numbers here as the numbers changed, but the gears didn't 1983-1990
    • Used but in great shape! 
      • I highly recommend that the bearings that are included (still attached to the gears) should be replaced. However it is up to your discretion as to whether or not bearings should be replaced.
    • Application
      • For MR & Alpha One Gen I Units which have the pre-load pin in the top of the drive shaft. (If your unsure what this means, just ask)
        • This gear set will not work in a MC-1/Pre-alpha & R gearcase (I apologize for the redundancy of this statement)
      • They used the same lower gearcase with all of the engines 1983-1990 so you're particular engine is not a factor here so this basically covers most (120hp 140hp 4cyl 165hp 6cyl 170hp 305 350 470 260hp 2.5L 3.0L 4.1L 3.7L 3.8L 4.3L V6 205hp 185hp 5.0L 5.7L V8 etc...
