Six and half dozen really. The engine controls are straight forward. Remove the clamp grommet where cables enter the engine. Normally 10mm bolts. On the engine, the throttle and gear linkage are held in place with stainless steel R-clips. Disconnect +tive and -tive battery cables.

Are you just replacing the engine? If so, chances are that if the new one uses mechanical links they will be compatible (apart from possibly a new connector screwed to the end of the cable to fit the widget on the new vs. old engine)

I'm running a Merc off a Yam 703 controls. For a while when my 703 decided to get grumpy I borrowed a Tohatsu control box & it worked fine...

The plug to the engine electrics is usually the main PITA in these things - that's why I moved the electrics to the console.
