Mercury 75

Hi. I desperately need a complete mid-section, with the mounts and swivel bracket in good condition... It's for a 1987 three cylinder Mercury 75.

Anyone know of an old 75 that is dead and I can have / buy the mid-section. Or whole engine if necessary.

Thank you...

I'm your guy

Thinks I have a mid-section (including working ptt) to fit a MERC 75hp 2 stroke. Bit newer than yours mind. Let me get some pics and post them up.

Oh you're a star if you have! I can get you pics of this engine if needed (No serial Number though) What sort of money are you after?

My email is: julian@mobileoutboardservices.com if easier?

Thanks again.

OK, Peter at Boats and Outboards doesn't have one.

Anyone else?? It's a Long-shaft too.

Thanks

This is a long shot, but I have the Clamp / swivel assy (minus PT) from a Yam 75 of approx that vintage.

I say Long shot as the Merc - Mariner - Yam triangle has a lot of shared parts, but a lot of incompatible as well.... I think I could have used it for my clamshell had I found the really rare leg...... The mounts were in the same relative position as one I saw at a marina.

Up latch all intact & working. There is a photo here Garage clearout- engine & trailer bits

If you can use it, make me an offer. It's just taking up space.

Hello.

Agreed, but the Mercury I have here looks bigger... It's the big block three cylinder. The mounts are really very big.

Best bet and the cheapest, is an exact copy. But I appreciate your help.

Many thanks

You might be surprised. Unless the Merc clamp is one of these "Merc Specials" that they used to churn out, when assembled the transom bolt holes should al lline up with the "unwritten world standard" spacing.

To put in perspective I was originally going to use that very assy to upgrade my old 1978 55Hp form outside mram / manual tilt to PT, and when I trawled the microfiches it also fitted everything between 50 & 90, and some 115s.

No worries. Agreed an exact one off the same vintage Merc will be the easiest option. As I found, finding one gets a liittle more interesting!
