    Ball bearings in gpr trim controls?

    My trim in my 1300 seized up, so i took it apart to re grease the cables and loosen everything up again. When putting it back together one of the bearing slipped out of my hand and i cannot find it anywhere after hours of searching. so i figured it is time to just get new ones. Does anyone on here know what size they are and also what material would be the most resistant to corrosion ?

    Thanks in advance

    they are stainless ball bearings I lost one too years back and was able to replace that one with a kids 12" bicycle wheel bearing. (depends on bike manufacturer for bearing size)
    This one bearing i replaced is not stainless, but I packed the whole assembly and ball bearing cavities with waterproof marine grease.
    This is what I did for a quick fix to keep from buying a whole trim assembly.

    Thanks haha, Now on the hunt for a old bike wheel. I cracked open a few old bike hubs that i have had laying around and all the bearings are so small (sealed hubs).

    This tip is for all home mechanics: www.mcmastercarr.com is an industrial supply house, and they have about everything. They ship really reasonable, and are priced good too. I never thought they would sell to anyone, but they do. I have bought things like sheet aluminum to make a GPR carb shield, those stainless clamps for oil lines, stainless bolts and ect. Anyway, they have stainless balls or bearings. Look under " bearing balls".

    Just thought about this, if Superman is the "Man of Steel" does that mean his balls rust? I think someone should PM him mcmasters phone number!
