what are the serial numbers for the motors? according to my parts breakdown for a 74' 65 hp there is no power trim unit. could it be a different year?


The serial # XXXXX the 74 is(NNN) NNN-NNNNI do not have the serial # XXXXX the 76 50hp

thanks, XXXXX XXXXX that ser# XXXXX the parts breakdown for that unit there is no power trim unit on it, so unless somebody modified it and put in a trim unit then i would say no it wont work. or are you trying to make the 50's fit onto the 65? either case it wont fit,
So you are telling me I can't make the power tilt unit from the 50 hp fit my 74 65 hp?
no the brkts are different and wont match up
