Don't know how your mechanical knowledge is, but one thing I found trying to PT both a Yam and a Merc is that at a high level, there is a statistically high chance the leg / gearbox etc will be shared with every lump up to abut 90Hp. This means that if you donlt mind a bit of retro fitting, more often thwan not you can remove the "manual tilt assist ram" and replace it with a PT unit from a gubbed other engine.
That makes it sound easy, and the actual swapping of components is. It's working out what bits you are looking for is the pain in the @rse. (although if you find a yam it's a dawdle as almost anything between 50 -90 seems to use the same midsection).
