looking for merc pre-alpha outdrive 888

Recommended Posts

Looks like I may need one. I have heard of places that have them as rebuilds etc, and also of a place in FL. that sells generic ones new. Anyone have places for me to check?

OK-got a call and it might just be a simple fix (hope/hope) I had replaced the gear lube screw with a new one and the new one had a magnetic tip. Looks like maybe it was a touch to long and the mechanic found the magnet part broke off and says it now shifts info forward gear. He won't be able to put it back on the boat till tomorrow but it may be that that tip clogged something up and might just be working. So just an FYI if you change your screw and it doesnt have a mag tip -dont add one. 

Thanks for the calls and emails guys I really appreciate it.
