I was tempted to "jest" further by begging to differ (your stats show you've a ribeye) but that would be mean.

Let's call it a draw :thumbs

What you are proposing to do is very doable, I did mine a few years back. But what you need is a doner engine with the same ignition type as yours. then just swap things over, stator, rectifier. etc. I kept an eye on ebay for a scrap engine with the same ignition system as mine, I think I waited about Eighteen month's. Mine is a 1985 model with CD ignition. When one came up I was lucky enough to win the auction. I have also fitted it with power t&t, I am dead chuffed with it.

Link to my thread regarding power t&t.

That's what's in mine. Fit & forget.

Breakerless ignition is the one where the spark timing is triggered electronically rather than by a set of contacts worked by a cam. If you got a thin electrical box with loads of contacts on the starboad side, it's breakerless.

(note for future searche finds, Starbaord side refers to the Merc Clamshell 50 / 60 HP. Other engines may vary! )
