TOPIC: Throttle Controls for 1957 Mercury Mark 30

Throttle Controls for 1957 Mercury Mark 30 1 week 1 day ago #142749

I just acquired a 1957 Mercury Mark 30 and was wondering what kind of throttle controls work with this motor. Do I need to find a vintage mercury setup, or can something newer suffice? Any help at all would be much appreciated.

any merc control works. But the 2 lever was what they used. the square box uses newer cables and is easy to find.

Ok, I found the one on eBay a QuickSilver two-lever control box. I assume I would need to get new cables. I also noticed that I found some issues with the lower case. I found cracks and missing pieces of metal from the case by the prop. Could something like this be repaired or should it be replaced?

that is shot. I have a mark 25 lower that will work with your driveshaft. 1 914 310 7086 Dave
