This 1952 Mercury outboard motor has been completely restored. This is mercury`s first full gear shift engine and was produced for only one year.


1952 Mercury KH-7 KH7 Cruiser
Just got back from Mississauga after picking up my new motor, shot a vid. KH7 History- Mercury racing outboards back in the 50's known as the KG7H/Q Hurricane were the motor to beat. They were 10hp motors knows as the "green top" motors, if you don't know much about Mercury's they put out more like 16+ horsepower, they were the sleeper motor of the day. The last production motor to have the Hurricane 20 CI powerhead with the integral gas tank was the KH7 Cruiser. Only built in 1952 it was knows as the "transition motor". Features on the KH7 such as forward , neutral and reverse as well as a twist grip throttle were not found on the KG7. It was Mercury's plan to put these features on the 1951 version of the KG7 but were late in production so they included it on the 1952 model and renamed it the KH-7. The 1953 Model was the Mercury Mark 15 which used a remote fuel tank and included all the other features as the KH-7. IMO this motor is relatively rare, research shows only 10,000 were produced. This particular model was purchased from a collector in Ontario. He bought it from a collector in the US. It has the factory lower unit without the drill modification, does not have a telltale hole drilled in the block like so many others and has the matching powerhead with lead plug in tact.

1957 Mercury Mark 10
I run my 1957 Mercury Mark 10 on my 1968 Montgomery Ward Sea King. Motor details: Twin cylinder (alternate firing order), forward-neutral-reverse shifting and throttle in the tiller handle, trolling lever, 10hp @ 4,000 rpm, max 5,000 rpm, adjustable friction co-pilot, vacuum fuel pump, two prop choices (two and three-blade). Motor is original except for some assorted gaskets, fuel line, impeller, tank hose and primer bulb, and fuel pump check valves. The boat, named "Uncle Herbie" for my great-uncle, was purchased from a friend for $150 and has a newly painted and textured floor, fuel tank frame, reinforced and improved transom, and painted seats with no-sink foam boxes.

5 Mercury Outboard Motors on the Sea Marlin Fast Boat - Bali to Gili Islands
This is the view from the stern of the boat. The motors are Mercury OptiMax 225's, though this boat used to run 250's. A heap of HP and weight hanging off the transom. For any petrol heads out there the sound of these motors in unison is awesome.

The Most Common Outboard Engine Issues: Fuel Systems and Flushing
http://features.boats.com/boat-content/2013/06/the-most-common-outboard-eng ine-issues-fuel-systems-and-flushing/ For more how to videos, visit www.boats.com. Visit our boats.com How-To library, and you'll notice that a lot of the topics relate to outboard engines. This shouldn't be a surprise, since outboards have been growing in popularity for many years now. So we decided to ask Chris Breeden, the service manager at Norfolk Marine and a Yamaha Master Tech, which outboard problem he saw with the most regularity. Chris's first answer came without hesitation: fuel systems. Thanks to modern ethanol issues, fuel systems can be finickier than ever. According to Chris, the first step in maintaining your fuel system is the use of a 10 micron fuel filter/water separator. Secondly, he notes that adding a fuel stabilizer to the tank each and every time you fill up is a must. And particularly on smaller, carbureted motors, the fuel system should be drained down every time the boat will sit unused for more than a few days at a time. The first step in this process is to start the engine, and disconnect the fuel line. Then let the engine idle until it runs out of fuel. Next, place a rag under the carburetor and open up the carb drain screw. Once all the remaining fuel has drained away, the engine can sit for several months without any issues. Making sure the fuel in your tank stays good is, of course, a separate issue (for more information on long-term fuel storage, read Ethanol Winterizing Tips). The next most common problem Chris sees is damage due to saltwater use without freshwater flushing. Corrosion and salt build up, anodes melt away, scaling clogs passages and gets into places it doesn't belong, and then you're left with major damage and a major repair bill. In fact, Chris showed us the inside of an outboard that hadn't been flushed regularly and it was a mess—to the tune of thousands of dollars in repair bills.
