Bravo 3 Gimbal steering pin worn

Recommended Posts

Has anyone have the steering pin for the Bravo 3 replaced? When I brought my 248 in for wrap, the mechanic was showing me the play in the drive unit. Has anyone done this themselves? I have been reading up on this and am going to investigate in a few weeks when I unwrap. Being a "Jack of all trades and a master of a few", I was going to do this myself.

 

Also, I'm not sure if I should go with a new ring and pin. I would like to hear if anyone had some experience with this.

II just had mine done! According to a Mercury rep. it is the worse job to do, you have to pull the putdrive about a 10 hour job or you drill out the housing and do it that way....I had mine done by The Boat Warehouse in Kingston, Ontraio and according to the ttechnician, it is a B***h of a job.

I know that it has been a while, but did you have just the pin replaced (and u-bolt) or the ginbal ring too? What was the total cost?
