    I'm having some electrolysis issues with my outdrives and my boat has what I believe is an older version of this part mounted to the transom of the hull just below the water line. does part 1 mount to the transom or to the outdrive?

    the unit mounts to the bottom of the transom housing where the hyd line hoses are.
    Without the correct bonding, it wont help much. Also if there is shore power installed incorrectly or the wrong type of charger installed.

    is this where you mount it? where the anode is?

    I have twin engines...does that mean I should have twin mercathode devices? at present I have one that doesn't seem to be functioning

    is there instruction available for how to install and ensure this is working?

    Yes, you remove that anode and install the mercathode one.http://www.boatfix.com/merc/Techbk/94/94hs7.pdf
