Not sure about quicksilver ones but a mate had an old Johnson 35, and had Ultraflex controls that worked qutie well, believe they are quite cheap, not sure of a supplier though.

Pretty much anything will fit as long as it's not mercury and you buy the adapters. There's adapters available for Johnrude to genuine morse too- I put a set on a Johnson 25 last year.

Try these as well-dual lever but cheap with what should be the right cables (as long as they are long enough!)

Bear in mind cables are >20 each.

A little kit will be required to adapt old cables and if you cant get them more local then yes to both
