Default Merc drive alignment tool

Just wondering if anyone has a Merc Bravo alignment tool they don't need any more or where the best place to get one is. I'm looking for a friend, his engine is going back in and will need one soon. Thanks guys!

Try ebay. I bought mine new and it was around $100. Cheap investment.

If your just using it to put a motor back in you should try to borrow one from someone in your area.

A nice tool to have. I always check my alignment when greasing the drive.

whoya - nice piece and even nicer price!

Curious, if I remember right someone said the actual merc tool utilizes a guide at the gimbal to ensure the shaft is centered. Is that included here as well? If not is it available seperately???
