I have a 1961 Merc 800E Gear Shift w/short shaft that's been collecting dust in my garage. Was originally on a 1959 Crosby Fish and Ski. Clean and ran strong before it was garaged. Have 2 props. 1 is brass. I was keeping it around in case my 1975 Johnson 85hp v4 on my pontoon blew up. I have now sold the pontoon. Is anyone interested breathing life back into in this old girl ? I hate to send antiques to the scrap yard ! Have a Clymers manual to go with. Make an offer. I am in Illinois approx 80 mi south of Chicago. Call for more info 815-592-8097.
