Here is a Youtube of a 1966 110hp Short Shaft which has had a very rough white paint job.
The sound quality is not to good either.
The title of the video says it's a 120. However, Mercury hasn't made a 120, that I can recall. Red Necks! Grin

Here you go Cheesy!
This is a real bitsa.. bits of this and bits of that. Shocked

The guy says, a 1963 model. I firmly believe that is true for a number of obvious signs relating to the block & leg.. However, I see the wrap around cowl is a 1968 and the front cowl is from the mid 70's. The motor has had a Pacemaker fitted (not THAT type Andrew Grin) to extend it to a long shaft. The Pacemaker is easily removed to take her back to a short shaft. At some time she's had Trim & tilt fitted which was not available until 1966.
Note 1: The Trim Rams are shown as not fitted in the pics, only the brackets are present.
Note 2: The Merc 1000's were Black in 1962 & 1963. Their blocks were silver.
The black blocks didn't come on to the scene until 1974.

A picture is worth a thousand words.

I didn't know that video's could make house brush paint jobs look ok!    Cheesy. A chrome  cowling and it'd look half decent from 20 paces!

Guy, I thought all motors had a "pacemaker" built into them - it is the little screw on the carby that defines the lower end of the idling range. Unfortunately humans don't have that "little screw".......

Here is anther idea. Did you see that Simon is selling his 950? See http://board.net.au/yabbse/index.php?topic=2319.msg12227#msg12227

If you don't want a Long Shaft, buy this to go with it http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Mercury-Outboard-Trunk-/121051854396?pt=AU_Boat_Parts_Accessories&hash=item1c2f40b63c&_uhb=1#ht_500wt_1288

As said earlier in this Thread... it would be easy to make her look like a 60-63 model.

By the way, I like the 850 you've found. I have one identical. Let me know if you decide against it,  as I wouldn't mind another in order to have twins.
