    Phelon coils

    Elgin 5/7.5/12hp.

    I have a 1955 or 56 Elgin with the 5-7.5-12hp selector 'switch'. I am missing the key, does anyone know where to find them, or does someone have one that they can make a copy? Thanks.

    Re: Merc Mark 6A

    Can anyone confirm the gas oil ratio for my Mark 6A as 16:1 and should I use a SAE 30 or 40? Should I use the two stroke marine oils?

    Thanks for the tip. Can you advise me on the correct lube for the lower unit, should I use 80/90 gear lube or a high quality grease? It's a 1959.
