I have a 76 65hp Merc and a 78 90hp Merc motors with bad gears in lower unit, My grandson was using the 65 when it went bad and the 90 I bought to replace it already had bad gears. I live in the Kansas City area and cannot find a Merc parts outlet. I need both forward and reverse and the pinion gear. A place in Kansas called Boatworks will not sell me the gears but will sell me a complete lower unit for a bunch with exchange. Do you know of a place where I could mail-order these parts?
ETRASHER asked for clarification on 4/23/2000: need more info. on why you are replacing just the gears?
ETRASHER gave this response on 4/24/2000:
make sure you check all bearings and races thoroghly.you will also have to replace the clutch-dog and you should check the water pump while you have it apart. try older marinas for the parts you need.they are more likely to have your parts.
