    Default Mercury Remote Control

    Hello fellow boaters,
    I have a 1987 Grumman pontoon with a 75 hp mercury. It came new with side mount quicksilver controls. I am refurbishing the deck and all furniture, and want to move the controls to a new center console. Has anyone ever tried removing the shift lever and rotating it 90 deg. on one of these controls. It appears that it would work just fine, but I don't want to do anything unsafe. All of the accessories (starter switch, low oil horn, emergency kill switch) will be mounted in the new console. I want to keep the trim/tilt button in the control lever, and mount the control module in a vertical position under the console. Any help would be welcomed.

    Thanks in advance for any input.
