Velvet drive parts

Velvet drive on my 87 pro star 190 started leaking and was slipping. Doesn't smell burnt or anything but was planning on just rebuilding. I have put 400 hours on it since I bought it. How long do these usually last? Any recommendations on parts kit?

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the help.

Was checking around a noticed that detent on the shifter didn't engage all the way. Cable was pulling lever past detent and putting pressure on it. Trans slipped little we on take off but the clutch would still engage and it was just low on fluid. It did not lose it all nor did it smell burnt. Loaded it up as soon as I noticed the problem.

Leak is coming from front seal. You think the detent could have played a role in this. I have always changed the fluid every 50 hours. I know nothing about the drive other than it is not the original. 1200 hours on boat. I am sure it gets a work out as I like to ski about 40 mph or 4000 rpm on my tach.
