The ONLY place you'll get them will be a mercury dealer,and you'll need a manual to do the job. If there's corrosion under the mounting covers you will probably need to get a dealer to do it.

Depending on the model of 115hp you have, the mounts retail from 50 - 150 pounds each, + vat. You'd better hope you got a cheapie. It's not the easiest of jobs to do yourself, but getting it done by your local merc dealer sometimes exceeds the value of the motor!

There is a shortcut to doing it, but alot of dealers wont/dont know how to.

If you have the serial number I can give you a better idea of cost.

You have to take the powerhead off, top mounts off, and then take the driveshaft housing off. And most of the bolts will break when you do it too. Its a great little job!!

i thought it looked like a powerhead off job,
if only they'd put the bolts in the other way it would be easy to replace them.
thanks for all your replys.
