Wanted - 1974 20 hp Merc for parts


Recommended Posts

Before i seriously look at dropping money for the motors listed below, i'd like to see if i can revive the old 1974 20 horse Merc that i have.

As i mentioned on the Boats/Motors thread, It runs well but starting is the problem. I've been told that the 'starter shiv' and 'starter pawls' (that probably makes sense to someone else) need to be replaced and that it is a common problem on old Mercury motors...and because so, are hard to find.

I think basically the whole starter mechanism needs to be replaced.

Thought i'd take a stab to see if anyone knows where to find an old Mercury laying around somewhere to find something like this ( before i start looking on .coms)

thanks in advance for any help,


hey Phil, those motors still available? If i'm down Saturday, may pop in.
