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

      Went to a small lake up around Mille lacs lake and found 20-28 inches of ice. The access looked like some busted it up, so eyeguy and I walked out. We caught bluegills and crappies on plastics. It was windy and cold but we got a few nice ones.

      Well, got out there this morning. Wind really made things miserable. Ice was about 12 inches. Was still in pretty good shape along the shorelines, although the top few inches were "milky". Ice was really popping and cracking the whole time. Everyone was traveling by foot (which I recommend). Tried for rainbows in the shallows, but couldn't avoid the perch, so I went deep for lakers. Marked one right off the bottom in 115 ft, but other than that, just a couple pods of smelt moved through. Pretty disappointing end to a very forgettable ice season

      Had about two hrs to kill today... so I hit one of our local lakes. Ice conditions were pretty good for walking out. Ice has hardened up a bit, still a bit chunky though. Had right around 13inches where I was. Found fish tucked right up in the bullrushes, 2-5 ft. Was able to sight fish to pick of some better ones.
