Your method sounds interesting - I'lll propably go that way.
Habve a look at the merc microfiches when you get round to it - memory says most of the powered rams from about 40-90 (ish) HP should fit as should the Alpha-1 leg rams.

Power packs - that's the easy bit!

Now someone offered me a 40 HP Yamaha, at a reasonable price.

Is it possible to retrofit the powertrimm to those engines?

and, is it possible to use a Quicksilver Control unit with the yamaha?

PTT is nice but I wouldn't worry too much about it.
Me sliding back or forth on the seat of my SR4 used to adjust the trim enough to make a noticeable diffrence.

I won't have a seat like that, "my" SR has the old Dashboard and 2-person seating up front.

Yes, you can do so by using a pair of 'hybrid' control cables which have Merc connectors on the front and 33c connectors on the back. Commonly known as 'Mariner' cables, cos that's what was used as standard on Yam derived Mariners. The wiring loom would need to be adapted though.

Is it electric start? If so, and you have the dashboard version, simple to remove the old Merc Wiring / switches, and put them on your dash. Plenty of room to connect the cables behind there (they all use bullet connectors insde the box, regardless of make)

I am running a Merc on a Yam 703 control. Pulled the electrics & switches out the control, and from memory only had to change one connector from M to F on the loom (at the controls end) to plug it straight in.

I had to run a jumper to the anti start in gear switch that had to stay in the control box, but as I thougth it was also the best place for the deadman and with power trim retro-fitted, I used a short length of trailer lighting cable (7 core) and made up a loom for the 7 connections.

If you put the deadman on the console, you'll only need 2 cores to the ASIG switch.

If you are manual start, it's only a stop switch to worry about!


Removing the electrics also means when your box dies mechanically, you can replace it with pretty much any box! (they all use the same mechanism)

I have all motor-concerned Electricitys inside the box - I'd love to keep the old one since its almost new

My motor is E-Start

So you say i have to remove all the Electric stuff from the box/get a dashboard starter key?
