I've a 1970 Evinrude with the V-6 as swell. Mine was in pieces as well -
chunks of cage and smashed balls all over. I measured it and guessed it
was a #206. I've replaced it with one from our local bearing shop (Motion
Industries, a nationwide chain) and it's worked fine for five years now. I
think they only had one with shields on both sides, but they're easy enough
to remove.

I wish I would've found a replacement for the roller-bearing too - I
couldn't figure out which part it was. All the rollers fell out several
times during assembly (that's when I learned the grease trick) and I was
worried it might be near failure too.

Here's my notes on the bearing from back then:

Note that I'm not absoltuely certain this is the intermadiate housing 
bearing, but I'm pretty sure that was the only bearing I replaced, so I 
think it's the right one.
