no 3 on page 5A-2?

Richard,
I think Chris was talking about reversing the bolts that hold no 10 in 5A-2 and no 5 on page 5A-6 i.e. the rubber dampers. 3
That's exactly what I'm going to do when I rebuild. The only reason I can see that Mercury built it that way is to stop the engine falling off if ALL the nuts come undone. Nylock nuts and a bit of thread lock should stop that though!

I think to replace the swivel bracket bushes (no.3 5A-2) you'll really have to lift out the whole #18 assy. which is why I'm going to take of the power head off.
Reasons being to give easy access to all the rubber damper bolts and to make the whole thing a bit easier to man handle. (obvioulsy using a engine hoist!)

I'll try to tak some photo's when I do it in a couple of weeks time.

Finally managed to get some pictures taken.

Best offer to date is 500

I'm sure you know the PTT is worth that but I'll accept if nobody is willing to better this within 48 hours!

Peter thanks for the photos. Will leave purchase decision for the moment until I have had another look at what needs to be done.

regards richard
