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

      I have a few different rods. The one i was originally referring to i am using for crankbaits.  i have a jig and worm rod as well. I have mastered the cast, just trying to learn more about leaders. Thanks! Do you recommend i use 17# test for my worm and jig rod?

      As far as I know walleyes are native to almost every lake that they are found in up north. Cliff

      How do you fish for the cats on open water?

      Interesting point, BT.  I think our houses caught one perch this year, and I can't say that I knowingly marked one small one (except for when I was down in the bays on the south side).  I have no doubt that they are still in the lake, but I just ain't seeing any.

      Are walleyes even native to vermilion? Pretty much every lake in northeast Minnesota had walleyes introduced to them in the last 50 to 100 years. If walleyes weren't native to vermilion, saugers certainly wouldn't have been native either. Sauger numbers seem to shrink the farther east each lake gets from Rainy Lake.
