This was a recent good thread that might be an option if you can't find a good replacement part.

I swapped out my HBW50 from my Cat 30. I got a new Twindisc for around $1200 don't remember the model #. I still have the old HBW50 that I rebuilt - it only needs shim adjustment at the shaft end all new disks and bearings. Got the parts form MER Equipment in Seattle. PM me if you are interested in the HBW50. I sold the boat a few years ago.
