Need some help here fellas

5 posts in this topic

I am in a bad way looking for a gimbal bearing for my Mercruiser. Any one have any contacts or know of salvage yards or wear house for older mercruiser parts.

I need a gimbal bearing for a 1966-1969 Mercruiser 80 series sterndrive. This is is a very odd bearing. It is held in the houseing with a rubber gimbal housing. Merc # is 38188. Any help would be greatly appreciated. With out this part my 1970 20 foot Crestliner cabin cruiser is scrap. worst part is the boat is still a beauty and runs great.

Thanks a Million fellas. 218-280-0442

It's going to be tough to find, have you tried Twin City Outboards in Shakopee, MN. ?

Otherwise I can sell you the whole boat if you want....same boat too grin.gif

Believe ir not there is also a place called (I think) Twin Cities Marine in Wisconsin, near the twin cities. Do a search. I cannot recall the town etc. but they seemed to have a pretty deep inventory. crazy.gif

      For the summer trip, there are many nice resorts to choose from.   Depends on what you are looking for.   If you want walleye, choose something on the Tower end.  If more Bass, Musky, or Northern then either end of the lake.       There is a fair amount of variation in amenities and price among the various resorts, with many to choose from.

      Would love to get together, but still in recovery from shoulder surgery. I will be attending the Ruffed Grouse Society Birds and Brews gathering and the Pheasants Forever Greet and Meet in Cambridge at the Pizza  Pub and Sidelines respectively in February. RGS on the 2nd at 5:30 and PF on the 20th at 5:30. No cost - just fun.

      As far as I know there are no resorts that rent fish houses on Vermilion. You could try Pike Bay Lodge though. Great place! Cliff

      Ha. Nope. Those are just my numbers. The other guys got 25-35 each per day.    The purpose of posting the info I did is to point out that the sky is not falling. There are still a ton of fish in the lake, just have to find them.

      Keep on preaching BA.   Just got back from a resort on the river, 3 days fishing. 22 feet of water, they sad they were catching fish. Shacks obviously haven't been moved so far. Obvious tell tale signs.   2 out of 3 afternoons never marked one fish. The other was just a couple. Morning bite 8-8:07   They ran with the pedestrian anglers/corporate drinking groups  'good fishing' reports with their bucket of 1 limit of 10" saugers.   Signed, Disappointed Schnook from Chicago
