    I purchased an old Mercury 75 outboard motor. The serial number is 4087247. I cannot find any information on this motor anywhere, can someone help me identify this motor, year and all that so I can repair it and get it in the water.

    That is a 1975 number.For which year I can't see a 75HP listed. Have a look for a silver disc in the block for a number or even the starter bracket.Someone may have replaced a damaged swivel bracket with an older working one.
    Or do you have a 7.5HP ? Which is '75 and here is a diagram for that http://www.marineengine.com/parts/me...ru-4851692-usa

    Its a 7.5hp I believe... I think the 75 is just a ďthing they didĒ, like how the 110s were 9.8hp... the number on the block matches the plate... thing is a nightmare finding the correct parts. Thank you for your help on this! Iíve been learning as I go.

    Canadian Serial - 1981

    If anyone is still looking at this post I could really use a hand, new here and I have the same problem. I have a 1980s 20 horse 2-stroke Mercury, the serial number on the motor is 5409186. I’d really appreciate it if anyone could help me identify it

    Here are some pictures of the motor, any help is appreciated. After some quick and sloppy digging around on the internet it appears you were right about it being a 1979
