It might, but I prefer the type that has a threaded rod and requires a nut on the engine side. If the slide weight proves inadequate, you can put an iron free-weight on there to give it a boost.

Just had a new gimbal put in this week. He used that, but with a jaw that expanded inside the gimbal to catch the back side.

I found THIS NOVEL WAY to remove a gimbal bearing-
--I didn't know the bearings had radiused races... cool smile

--so, would this make removing the bearing's housing easier than removing it all at once?
