I don't know about the ones in the photo's, but I have fitted a Three ram type T&T to my 50hp. Two stroke Brown band (1985) mercury. If I knew how to add pictures I could show you the result. It's not a straight forward Ten minute job, but it's a stonking little conversion. I have done Two of these now.

Ignoring the supply issures, possibly. For example I had to swap the clamp & swivel brackets on mine, but the Yam I had before was a case of undoing 6 bolts & replacing the manual with the powered version.

You are fitting to a Mariner, so in theory, you could have a Merc or yam based clamp / swivel.

Merc had numerous variations on a theme (I am in the middle of refurbishing a dead one similar to the middle pic on that link for my Clamshell, but there were 3 versions of that idea (single ram) and a variant with 3 ram version too! (and that ignores the outside ram version....) On the plus side, if it's a Yam based engine, the 3 ram PT seemed to fit everything form the 2 cyl 55 C.1979 up to the last of the 90 HP 2- strokes....

So, first things first - your engine. presumably has a "shock absorber" ram. First 2 Qs - is it central or offset? If central, are there two circular recesses about 1/3- 1/2 way up the swivel bracket?

If you could tilt your current engine & take a couple of pics it will help to ID what you have, and then work out what you need. Serial Number be useful too.

Hope I have got these pictures up.
This is the conversion I did to my 4 cylinder 2 stroke 50hp. Merc. The power t&t unit came from a 90hp Merc circa 1992? I had to do a bit of chopping and re welding to get the lower bearing carrier in the right place. The motor is Three wire type, needing Two solenoids which I sited under the wrap round. I got some wiring diagrams and just followed them. The up & down buttons were from a transom fitting, so I wired them through the control box, which I had to strip down to do the job. I also added a trim gauge.

Then I had to tackle the steering arm and make a few adjustments. I thought I would have more trouble removing the power head from the Merc, but as it happens it came away easily. I am dead chuffed with it as I said earlier it's a stonking conversion, well worth the money and effort.

I got the power t&t unit off ebay for about 83 I thought was reasonable. When my brother saw it he wanted the same doing to his, he has a Mariner 45. which is the exact same engine so it was just a question of doing it again. We got another t&t unit off ebay for about 78 this time which was nice.
