Engine is certainly right for a mk1. Is it a wooden hull? All mk1 had a wood hull with a wood deck, the mk11 was a fibreglass hull with a wooden deck.

There are a few in the club but certainly not common. I know of a couple local to me in the midlands and I know of a couple of them in the Norfolk area. One was advertised recently on the Isle of Wight. I think there were around 100-150 bod them built but none have serial numbers so difficult to keep track!

If you give me a call I can give you all the information you need as I have converted quite a few of the older engines to Electronic Ignition.

Shouldn't have to. Just release the gland nut (probably has a locknut as well) lift it up the rudder shaft (if poss) along with the spacer the nut pushes on, hold it out of the way with a cable tie. Using a pick remove ALL the old packing then cut the new packing to length by wrapping it round the shaft & cutting it off, it will probably take three or four pieces. Grease them then arrange them so the ends are in different positions. A bit more grease then reassemble, don't over tighten it (especially on the prop shaft) although the rudder is less critical, and you are done. Check when in the water & adjust if needed. The prop shaft gland should drip occasionally.
Mercs are like women, no 2 are exactly alike. That's what testing is about. In general it is safer to test motors and props than women!
