MerCruiser 65535A4 87314-S Gimbal Bell Housing Pre-Alpha 1974-1982 Threaded Pins

Part Numbers:

  • MerCruiser 65535A4 Bell Housing Assembly (stamped 87314-S but equivalent to 65535 stampings) Stamping is not entirely clear and might be 67314-S
  • This has been re-threaded/upgraded to accept the “contemporary” AFT installation shift cable 19543A4 (Sierra 18-2190) 

    • Up until 1983 MerCruiser used a shift cable that threaded from the other side. They did away with this concept and everything produced since has used a cable that threads from the other direction.
  • For use with gimbal housings that HAVE Trim senders and used the threaded style pivot pins
  • Supersedes to these Part Numbers:  42815A6, 42815A3, 94995A3 (design looks slightly different but would still functionally work as a replacement for 1983-1990 units)
