    1973 Mercury 115 2 stroke engine questions

    Might as well drop the lower unit since you're going to be cranking that thing. If compression is ok and it then fires, head to water pump. I have 2 1960's Mercs and the wiring is fine but the 1975 wiring was toast.

    What's this "rock" on the back of my sterndrive and is it supposed to be there ?

    I didn't have any luck with Aluminum in or Lake (Buckeye). After two seasons the anode looked new, however the lower unit showed pitting. I changed to Magnesium and get three seasons out of them. No pitting on other unit parts. IMHO

    My 1965 (65) hp was like yours. I ground the six sides of a 3/8" Allen until I could drive it into socket. I still have the wrench for special occasions.

    Hole in Mercruiser gimbel housing

    My century has Blige blower that exits at top side of transom, (grill) guess there's another description for that area, so I ran temporary wiring thru grill. My wire insulation was cracking and didn't want to pull bell housing until needed to run wires . It's a real ***** replacing correctly.
