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.
