Need help replacing solonid on mercury outboard

Trying to remove solonid on 1975 merc ll5 hp motor. the out side bolt is too close to the side of the housing to get the 7/16 socket on it. I even tried a thin wall 12 point socket . Can any one tell me how to remove this bolt?

You may have enough room for a wrench. I have an old ignition set of small wrenches and those are slim. There is also a fitting called a crowsfoot which is thick like a wrench but short and fits on a rachet extension. The 1/4" drive set of sockets are usually shorter than 3/8th. If you have a camera, take pictures and go to Sears with it and buy something to work.

1974 40H.P. mercury outboard been setting up for 10to12yrs


This is probably a Merc 400 and you can remove the upper cowling and rope start it if you do not have the rope starter already attached. As I recall, all of this class motor were manual start with optional electric start, so thy came equipped with pull starters.

If the motor will not turn over manually then it is likely seized or frozen up and requires professional help. I have worked on numerous Mercs from 5 to over 100 HP and every one would turn over by pull starting if they were mechanically sound.

I have a 1964 mercury merc 850 85hp boat motor.


I have the same motor, and the original manual.

The mixture is 50:1. Everything else will destroy your motor. Mercury has a toll free number, call there in case you still have doubts.

Impeller replacing on 1999 merc. 25hp 2 stroke


Should not be that hard. Tape up the ends so you can hold it with out getting cut, (if its ragged or sharp from damage). should be one nut holding the impeller on. If its to tight to hold try air or electric Impact wrench. If its bad you can tap with a hammer to help in removing the old one. If it turned on the shaft you will need to rent a puller. Repost if you need more help.

Bad key switch on 1975 merc. 1150 outboard


Here's something to try. There are cans of plastic coat to dip stuff into to insulate them. Then you could also try to remove the terminals and use shrink tubes on the wires and then replace the terminals. If only for a short while you can see if that fixes the problem.
