My neighbor trashed the gimble housing and pivot housing on his 1993 454 OMC King Cobra 22'. He is 80 years old and doesn't use a computer much so I told him I'd try to find him some help.

Apparently these replacement parts don't exist. If they do please let me know where. His outdrive is fine. His engine is fine. So he'd like to just repair the broken parts if possible. He doesn't want to put the money into replacing with a Bravo and I guess an Alpha conversion is not possible since the gimbal housing is torn up?

Any help would be appreciated by this great Veteran who really loves his Donzi. Thanks

He ordered what he needed from Doug Russell. He said they were very helpful on the phone and very patient with him. Thanks for the suggestion.
