This Mercury KF7 Lightning has been completely rebuilt and has about 5
hours on it.The water was a little rough due to some wakeboarders, so it
was difficult to run at full throttle for an extended period.
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
