    Default Kiekhaefer Merc 500

    Hi,

    New member.

    I've got a 1962 Merc 500 Ser No. 1519277. It's a lovely engine and will run all day with no problems. I was just wondering, however, if a power trim/tilt system can be fitted to it, and if so what would people recommend?

    Thanks.

    From what I can find they didnt start putting trim components until 1980 for the 50hp motors. Does your motor have the shock absorber under the swivel bracket?

    Those years they made motors for reliability.
    Problem prone parts were left away. Your motor is so lovely light weight compared to the new heavy weights..
