Overall this kit doesn’t look bad. All the parts had their own separate plastic bag, only one loose nut in the box, and on top of each part having its own plastic bag, each part was wrapped in paper. Everything in the box was well packaged and has close to 0% chance of getting damaged. The Z-bar handle was wrapped with the shaft. The packaging on the shaft and handle could be better, with the shaft arriving with the splines sticking out past the protective packaging, but it still arrived undamaged.
All the pieces and parts are heavy, except the coupler housing and support bracket; the transom bracket, the engine mount, the pivot arm, the throttle lever, and the shaft, especially the shaft! The shaft is very heavy compared to the other two shafts. I think this is due to being full of grease, but that will get addressed in another video and article.
