Help Tip: If you have a question that has not been answered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new thread of your own. By starting your own thread, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum members.

Below are some additional forum policies in hopes of all iboats members will follow, Thank you.

1. Please do not reply to old topics or hijack existing topics. Old topics of a technical nature are like a library book, Please do not write in them.

2. Old topics should be considered archives and used for reference only. Please do not reply to them.

3. Do not take over someone elseís topic (aka hijack) with your own question, even if it is similar. If you have a question that has not been covered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new topic of your own.

4. If you have a question for the original poster (OP) and the topic is over 30 days old, send the OP a PM, he may not even visit the forums any longer, or may not notice your question in the old topic.

5. By starting your own topic, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum helpers that may not even notice your question when itís posted at the end of someone elseís topic. And those answers will be specific to your particular issue.

6. Please do not post to topics that have been inactive for more than 3 months unless you are the original poster. We have very active forums and any topic that remains inactive for that long should be considered "dead". It is especially confusing when there is an entirely new question posted to an old topic.

7. Posting at the end of any topic is considered to be hijacking the original posters topic which in turn subjects the topic to be closed if it continues to happen thus not making it fair to the original poster in the future had for some reason he/she needed to return for additional information or provide an update of the problem solved which is always welcomed within a reasonable amount of time frame.

8. Please note that you should see a red banner pop up near the bottom of each inactive topic asking you not to reply to old topics. The Red banner will read: Please note this topic has been inactive for 90 days. For the best results, please start a new topic.

Thank you all in advance for doing your part in helping iboats run a smooth ship.

  • Kiekhaefer Model Mark 28A Ser# 1200327

    I am restoring this old motor and I need some parts. I need the head cover gsk, a pull start reel assembly (the old unit very badly rusted up it might be salvaged) a repair manual would be helpful. What is the point setting .020? I understand it is a 1958 or 59 22HP engine. I may need some more parts, where is a sourse?Thanks, Ron Maire

      Hi Ron, The "A" in the model number makes it a 1959 model year. "A" stood for Anniversary year, with 1959 being Mercury's 20th anniversary. As for parts, there are many interchangeable parts for your motor. Recoil baskets from the Mark 28, Mark 10, Mark 15A, early (white) Merc 200s, etc. will fit. A little sleuthing at your local outboard shops might turn up a few of them. If you've got some of the original head water jacket gasket left, you can cut a new one easy enough. . As SL pointed out, OLDMERCS.com has a lot of good stuff for your vintage Merc...- Scott
