Tristar Seat Swivel?
 
Does anybody have -- or know where to find -- a seat swivel for the passenger seat on a late 80s/early 90s Tristar? I've tried mymastercraft and and a few other dealerships, but nobody seems to be able to locate one. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I have an '89 TriStar. and had to rebuild the swivel on the passenger side last fall. It was pretty gummed up. It's going to be hard to find a combination swivel/slide.

Is there any way you can rebuild your current swivel, or is it beyond repair?

Overtons has a swivel for $20, but you'd lose the fore/aft adjustment capability:

I got one on ebay, a few years ago. Lakes Skipper had them. It is a generic item, of the period. I had one totally frozen up, got it to work... just took awhile.

Have to agree w/ the last 2 posts. Tough item to find. A can of WD-40 a few beers and clean rags is the best way to go. We hav cleaned them up and made them work again

I'm not actually trying to repair or replace the swivel. I want to put a swivel on the driver seat, but wanted to try to find an original MC part before buying a new swivel and track system or building one. Thanks for the tips.

This is the slide/swivel in my '98. Probably a bit newer than what you're looking for, but it is MC-rated and priced.

Which one did you decide on?

The one from Great Lakes Skipper. It's more expensive than I would have liked, but at least I know that it's the same part as what I've got on the passenger seat.
