TOPIC: Can 1985 Tilt-trim be put on 1973???

Can 1985 Tilt-trim be put on 1973??? 1 year 10 months ago #125411

Can a 1973 Evinrude 65HP be upgraded with the Tilt-Trim from a 1985 Evinrude 70HP? Both are 3 cylinder with large lower case, but not sure if the swivel bracket can mate up.

Has anyone done this swap before? I can get the motor for $750 (has a bad cylinder).

Not me. Hard to tell looking at the pictures on Marineengine.com. It looks like the '85 T&T is internal in relation to the transom bracket, while the T&T for the '73 is likely external with the a bracket that bolts to the motor housing. Here is a picture of the one I bought for my 1974 70 hp Evinrude.

Correct, one is internal and other external of the bracket. My question is can the entire pivot mount be swapped, so the complete newer is used. They changed in 77, but not sure if the mounts changed and can be swapped?

That is beyond my meager nautical expertise. Ask Ed-MC directly, I would guess that he would have an idea.
