HELP (=79 Hunter 30 Edson Wheel Idler base is Rusted )=

New to this and a first time Hunter Owner(= I found a Nice 30' and found the base of the Idler on the Edson wheel is Rusted Off)=. I ordered the Catolog and Found the part order # 776AL? Being short of funds I went to our local Salvage and found a Used Edson Idler # B-838 ? Looks to be the same as the 776AL? The Pulley Wheels are 6" instead of 4" and I can't seem to Find the used Part Listed in the Catolog? Any Help or Ideas?? My boat is located 2 hours away from my home and would like to know if anyone has switched out and if I will need any special tools?

Thanks Rich
