mercury 60 swivel bracket bearing

my friend has a 1991 mercury 60 hp and the bottom swivel bracket bearing is well and truly shot.does anybody outhere know how difficult this is to change?
if i remove lower leg does the gear selector rod stay in place ?
and where would be the best place to get spares (i have the part numbers).
any help would be greatly appreciated

thanx
andy

Yes the shift shaft will stay in place if you remove the gearbox. However to change the lower steering bush you will have to remove the powerhead assembly. Then drop the driveshaft housing off so you can slide the steering arm out the tube and replace the bush.

You can get the bits from any Merc/Mariner dealer.

PM me your serial number and i probably have a service manual in PDF for that motor which may help.
