Re: 1978 Mercury ???? hp??????

Rance;

That s/n for a 150 comes up as:

V-150 6 4868998 1978
V-150 6 5129480 1979

from here:

http://www.outboard-boat.com/index....50:outboard-model-numbers-and-years&Itemid=53

Because 1979 begins with a s/n greater than yours, it is a 1978

The starter solenoid matches the 150hp yet as you said it could have been replaced. The numbers (1750) were read off of the cover that mounts on two bolts too cover the carbs.

Old first generation block with mis-matched front crankcase half. Could be 150 or 175. Since front half has been changed could have blew up at one time.
