I have a 1972 MFG Gypsy. The Evinrude motor **** the bed, so I've put on a 1977 Mercury 850. The only problem is, the existing steering linkage on the boat won't work with what is on the Merc. Is there a part I can order somewhere that will take the place of the existing boat linkage end(which has no through hole to put a bolt through) that will work with the Merc(which has a bolt)? It looks like the existing end may screw off of the threaded rod of the existing steering arm.
