I doubt there is someone here that specializes in that. It's bad enough trying to find a reliable vehicle mechanic shop! :cautious:

It’s not that bad to diy. Did it on my last boat, most expensive part was buying the spline socket and alignment tool. Weekend project.
however busted knuckles will to it if you want to have someone come to you.

What ever you do, change the lower shift cable at the same time!! All has to come out to replace it and they really kill a weekend when it checks out.

Having the exact same work done on my Volvo Penta outdrive this week. Taking mine to Aqua Marine in Henderson. Reviews online say they're good and place is always packed when I drive by

I have seriously considered doing it myself. Looking at installing/fighting the bellows was my concern. And I was planning on shift cable. Thanks for heads up. IL give busted knuckles a call and see what they say.

It’s really not that bad. I would buy the bellows tool (it’s dirt cheap) just to assist with exhaust bellow. The one for the drive shaft is the one that matters and keeps water out of your boat and it’s the easiest one to get on there. Hang the bellows a few days before and let them stretch out a bit. You use the goop along with the clamps to seal them. Make sure you buy the mercruiser kit however. The Sierra and off brand ones are not as nice. I was very unimpressed with the gimble that came with it and got a different one. If you decide to go for it let me know if you have any questions.
