Has anyone had any experience having their Mercruiser Gimbal Bell Housing or Gimbal Ring repaired ? I need the repair done to my gimbal bell housing and want some input.

There seems to be a few repair shops that specialize in this work and I would like to know if this fix REALLY does do the trick and for how long.

Any recommendations on shops ?

By doing this repair I can save about $ 300 bucks. Iím not cheap but I like saving money, but I donít want to deal with repair twice.
