I will try to find out more about the gear - the company is next to me :sunglasses:

Here a look inside the pod - outrunner without active cooling, gear and large prop:

I know it’s a different model but the pictures from the Cruise 4.0 rl are a little clearer. If I squint just right, it looks like a 70mm PLA gearbox for 4kW input power (at 48V) and max output RPM of 1300. Can’t quite make out the gearing ratio but its definitely a single digit. Other Torqueedo models use outrunners mated to smaller gearboxes in what appears to be a dry pod so I assume the Cruise 4.0 rl is a dry outrunner as well. Interestingly, they’ve managed to keep a multi kW dry outrunner cool!

You are right - this is a Neugart PL? 70 and it’s for the bigger models.
The first shown one is also Neugart - maybe PLE 60?

Indeed the second one looks to be a PLE 70

They aren’t the ple range of gearboxes. I have the one that is used in the 1003 motor. They are designed to take the load of a propeller.

That piece could be adapted to our designs. It would be great if you could get some pictures of that part from all angles… We can’t see the inside, how they are doing the sealing. Good findings. At least that Gearcap and the gearbox could be a good choice for people in Europe.
