| | How much would a gimble ring cost to get replaced?
Im looking into this boat for sale locally,and the guy says the boat is 100% other then the Gimble ring has some play and will need to be replaced soon.
Im not even sure of what that is,but from what I looked up it looks like the part that would be mounted to the transom and the outdrive parts come through that to the outdrive,Is this correct?
My question is what would be the ball park figure to have one replaced at a marine shop?
Now the guy mentioned these can be found on used on ebay for around $100,Would you want one of these parts used?
Also I was looking at some youtube vids the other day,some guy made a vid of him replacing a water pump unit and he showed how to remove the out drive,I was amazed on how easily it came of,he took of the prop,steering rod things and like 6 bolts and pulled it off,Looked pretty easy.
I know this isnt a water pump kit,but could one of these gimbal rings be put on at home or is this a precision part that needs the professional?
