I need to post some pictures, but here is something fun in the meantime. I’m making my own waterslide decals. The light blue color will be white and the pink line is the cutouts.

That looks like a very clean starting point for a rebuild.

I will be rebuilding a Merc 700 next and plan to do a video on setting the timing.

I do have the controls plus the wiring harness (it’s a little rough). I’m gonna pick your brain on setting the timing on this sucker once I’m ready!

Nice! Looking forward to seeing that combo. I've only seen one other 6 on a Vagabond and wondered how it handled it.

So, my Vagabond I will get a Mercury Mark 75. This will chronicle the rebuilding of that motor. After the motor rebuild we’ll get cracking on the boat. Here‘s what I’m working with:
