TOPIC: Upgrade from '63 Mercruiser Series I to later unit

Upgrade from '63 Mercruiser Series I to later unit 5 years 9 months ago #63734

I have a 1963 Dunphy 17' lapstrake with a '63 Mercruiser (first year Series I Serial#1534831). I need help either finding parts for this out-drive or advice on upgrading to a newer model that has better parts availability. The engine is the 4 cylinder "Iron Duke"
used in many glass boats.

Thanks for any help you can give.

Unfortunately, prior to 1967 models, interchangeability is minimal.

There were several manifolds used and there were #1 (14" Dia prop max), #1 A,B,C & #1 A,B,C with EZ shift all prior to 1967. All the #1 A,B,C and later until today use a 16" dia prop. The bell housings varied slightly and so you are limited unless you change the entire engine & drive to 1967 and newer.

What parts do you need?
