Mercury Sae Or Metric ?


Recommended Posts

The last time I was at the lake I noticed that my 2000 Mercury throttle/shift control housing was loose on the bulkhead. Should I take metric or sae tools with me to the lake ? I have not really looked to see HOW it attaches to the bulkhead. Screws ? Any tips would be most helful..

Thanks.

Mercs are metric (since they have been farmed from Yamaha and Tohatsu for quite a few years now) but it's possible that whoever rigged your boat used 1/4x20 (sae 7/16) to mount the control box.

Ok thanks for the response. Ill be addressing the fix next week & maybe Ill be able to share my fix with someone else someday as well.. Thanks again.

How rude of me.I forgot to post my update..

I finally took a better look & discovered that all I needed to do was tighten the bulkhead screws ( that were covered by plastic caps)..
