Pretty - IIRC, that fitting is for a pressure tap. and FWIW, my "notes" indicate 82 was prop rated. I can't document this however.
Time to ditch the 180 and find a 22 footer for your twins.Two is one, and one is none, right? Picked these two up yesterday, both 115hp, one a 1984 and the other a 1982 (although the skins/decals are the '84-'85 type). Came with three 6 gallon tanks, extra props, manuals, stands, and many extras. Looks like all the core electrical components are interchangeable, as well as many others. Based on my research, the '82 would still be crank rated, however I have also read that serial#'s over 5829464 were prop rated and essentially the old 140hp block. This '82 is serial# 6007313, so could potentially be prop rated as well. The '84 would be prop rated, so it'll be interesting to see where the differences are between the two. Racerone...may need you on this one

Any idea what this fitting is for? Something to do with cooling? Located between the top three and lower three plugs. It isn't currently attached to anything.

Here, lemme help...Time to ditch the 180 and find a 22 footer for your twins.
Little town in NWWI, just NE from the MPLS/STP metro across the river. There was a posting for a boat and trailer (old glasser) with a note in the details about two Mercury 115hps available. After a few messages and phone calls to inquire more about the motors, I cleared my calendar for the following morning to make the 5 hour round trip.More importantly, where did you find these motors?
