Mercury 60hp thermostat

I'm going to replace the thermostat on my 2003 Mercury 60hp 4-stroke. Can anyone help with a part number so I can find the right thing on eBay?

Outboard serial number is OP231518.

Thanks

Nick

If you have the model number, you'll find it here.

You need to change the gasket at the same time. You can skim off the old gasket if it tears with a razor blade. Don't over-torque the bolts, nip up in sequence.

Cheers spartacus. Had a wee web chat with the website people which resulted in them giving me the wrong part number, which they also wouldn't deliver to the UK.

I eventually Googled the serial number on the thermostat cover and I've now got the right product through eBay for £40.

Never easy, eh?

Indeed. Get yourself a PDF parts catalogue for your engine. There are so many variants between models.
