The motor should have a serial number on it. You might get lucky and find it on the mercury HSOforum. You can also do a search on "mercury outboard serial numbers". There are a couple of sites that have info. If all else fails, take the number to a Mercury parts dealer and they can tell you what year it is and what prop to use.

The prop may have a number on it as well indicating pitch, diameter, etc. I hope that helps

What I would do is take the prop off and bring it to a shop that will rebuild it. It will cost you about half the price. I took my prop in the spring and it cost me $65 instead of $140, I took mine to formula propeller in Brooklyn Park just south of 694 on county road 81. I have had mine out 3 times and it runs just like a new one.

Try a Comprop while you are have the old one rebuilt. It makes a great spare and the performance on my 90 Evinrude is very good. I'm sure they make one for your 60 Merc. Check Cabela's HSOforum for specs.

Good luck

    • Seen on the channel 5 news the other night, plans to remove a dam in River Falls. They didn't specify which dam, or if it would be both dams. The movement is gaining popularity, especially with residents. And more input meetings will be planned. However, if the project is ok'd, it doesn't sound like it will be in the near future. I'm all for the dam removal! Both of them!
    • Hey Dave, I am sorry to hear that. If you need anything you have my number.  Send me a PM or text and let me know whats going on. Recurring infection? Low blood supply?     
    • Yes. But he has a great plan to utilize the excess rail capacity in the country by relocating those who disagree with him. It's gonna be a real gas. 
    • 100% A-OK is how that's working out, but I'm not surprised by the continued confusion. Even beside Texas vs Johnson, the idea of stripping citizenship from people hasn't stood up in court.
    • You must have been on some sh*tty ice for it to do that... Love my heavy spud bar, if it doesn't go through in a couple wacks I feel pretty darn confident in stepping...Spud bar,picks,pfd,rope, common sense all ya need

    • What? You don't like the 1st amendment?
    • there is a seat belt law, why not have a ice picks law? if you are caught out ice fishing before the 1st of the year without picks, you get a "stupid" ticket.
    • So burning a Quran, or pouring bacon grease on it must be protected as well?  And flying the Stars and Bars?  How is that working out?
