Hello my name is ***** ***** am I speaking with?
All Mercurys are cataloged by serial number. I will need that number so that I can run it and see exactly which engine you have.
Did you have the serial number handy?
It's on a sticker on the clamp bracket portion of the outboard, starboard side.

That's not it. The serial number will have 1 number, 1 letter, and 6 more numbers in it. For example, 0A123456, 1B654321 ect ect
Again I would need the serial number, that's the only way I know which service manual to pull. Without it I simply can not help you
