I need an Mercury Outboard shifter 20 HP 1974 Merc outboard.

Customer Question

I need an Mercury Outboard shifter for a 20 HP 1974 Merc outboard. I have seen the same looking on on Ebay for a 1978 70 HP. Is the shifter the same or do IO need one for a 20 specifically.

Hi my name is Mike,

Although the shifter handle you saw for the 70 hp looks the same, it is in fact larger and slightly different. If your motor is a North American model then it should have a plastic shift handle correct?

If you can provide me with the serial number of your motor I can try to help you find the correct shifter.

Did you still need help find a shift lever for your Mercury?
