Ebay will be the place! Especially this time of year, sellers will be getting rid of good parts. You will have to search the listings very frequently to see what comes up from day to day.

Replaced gimbal bearing and can not get the alingnment tool to go in.

Check the factory tool with the shaft. Count the splines/teeth. I doubt they are balanced , but make sure there isn't set place the shaft has to go into. I would most likely say you received the wrong part. Factory, doesn't mean right. Especially dealing with a 98.

I have a 1985 bayliner with a 125hp volvo penta with 270 outdrive... i have 2 Q's 1. today the boat overheated pretty quickly, i think the thermostat has had it. after talking with some local boaters they...

It could be the thermostat is stuck in the closed position, but if you hear a troubling noise coming from the outdrive, I suspect the water pump impeller that is located in the outdrive is in need of replacement. A bad impeller in the outdrive will not assist in pumping water up to the engine, and will cause an engine to overheat quickly. The rough sound could be directly related to the impeller also, but could also be a different problem with the u-joint assembly or another outdrive internal component. Overheating can be caused by several things; Defective outdrive impeller, defective thermostat, clogged riser or manifold, defective engine mounted water pump assembly. These are the most common areas, but since there is a noise coming from the outdrive, I would concentrate trouble shooting this problem starting with the outdrive impeller assembly.

I'm trying to figure out if my 1985 bayliner with volvo penta 125hp has power tilt/trim on it???

It should have power trim. In the engine compartment, either on the left or right side you should see a hydraulic pump with a tank to hold the fluid. There will also be hoses running to and from it. There should also be a switch at the helm that allows you to raise and lower the drive.

Volvo penta 740 lower unit will not go down.

Kind of sounds like the trailer switch is in control. Many of these switches have lockouts and if you move the outdrive past the trip point the other solenoids are dead. Watch fingers. There may be a tilt switch on the water side of the transom in the pivot housing.
