 CLE gear case is a factory nose cone gear case with a low water pickup. It is designed for high speed applications with motors mounted high on the transom and surface piercing props. The Cresent Leading Edge(hence CLE)also helps prevent blowout at high speeds. The CLE foot will reduce performance on most applications that do not meet this crieteria because of its poor lifting ability. A stock gear case will lift better.

 I cannot for the life of me think what CLE stands for, Crescent Land something or other!! The CLE was mercury hi-perf gearcase before the sportmaster. The CLE is a relative slow gearcase. They are a durable gearcase with heavy duty parts! They do have their flaws though. There is too much frontal profile on the skeg. The skegs also had a tendency to get air pockets in them while they was being made. They will break off, I know this by expereince!! They stock nose cone creates too much turbulance in the water. It helps if you fill in the upper holes on each side. This is for the CLE's with 4 inlet holes. A CLE is also bigger around then a stock case. To get a CLE to run like a stock (nose coned case)you MUST change the aspect ratio. By lengthing the case the gearcase, any hole punched in the water has more time to collapse back to the gearcase before reaching the prop. This is changing the aspect ratio. The aspect ratio is the relationship of the diameter of the gearcase compared to the length. The carrier bearing in a CLE is a beefy piece but it restricts exhast flow. All internal parts in a CLE are stronger than a stock gearcase. You can put all CLE internal parts in a stock (nose coned) gearcase and have great gearcase. I have a CLE with a Bob's nose cone, torque tab, blowout ring, and it's been lenthened about 3 inches I'd sell CHEAP!! Hope this helps.
