Default New to me '95 1750 sr

Hello,

I bought a '95 1750 sr. Unfortunately, the bellows are shot. Thought it was just the exhaust bellow, but it's the drive bellow too. I'm going to take it apart Wednesday not give it a shot. I bought a quicksilver transom kit. It looks good but the bellows were made in China and the bearing was made in Mexico. Kind of wonder if it was worth the extra money.

Default Thanks

Other than the bellow is sure, the runs great and looks pretty good from 10 feet. The interior is in great shape. The new gimbals bearing that came with the kit is sealed and not greasable. Not sure how I feel about that.

The new bearings are sealed for life. It should last longer than the bellows unless water gets to it.
