81 Merc Recoil Plate

Recommended Posts

A buddy of mine has an 81 Merc with a bad recoil plate. Has anyone here replaced one of those, and if so, how difficult was it? I would like to do it for him, as he is busy with wedding stuff and can't seem to find the time.

Any info. is appreciated.

Sorry Marine man, I just saw your reply blush

I unfortunetly have not had a look at said "recoil plate", but my buddy says it is the wheel that the rope goes around, the top of that (plate) is cracked all the way across......I suppose I should have looked at it with my own two eyes before posting......I'll try and get a look at it this weekend and have some more specific details for you.

Thanks,

Grab a serial number off it when you take a look at it to. Then we can have a look at the exploded parts view for a beter idea.

    • If anyone here is in the market for an electric smoker, give me an IM. I will soon be listing my MES 40 that has only been used 1 time. It is barely even seasoned!
    • Not yet, but I have been thinking of trying one....
    • I figure any fish that doesn't get into my boat was a wall-hanger for sure. 😀
    • I've never bought a car/truck over $15K, so yeah.  It would take a powerball jackpot before I was in the market for a dealer showroom boat.
    • Dry brine with Mortons Tenderquick, amount directions per pound are on the package in a ziplock in the fridge. Add seasonings like onion, garlic, black pepper, maple sugar or brown, allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg. What ever you prefer. Take meat out of brine and let sit in Fridge overnight. Smoke around the 130 degree mark for 12 hours (for my liking) or as smokey as you like. Cut into 1/8" slices and cook in the oven 425 degrees for 20 to 30 min to your desired crispness. 
    • I just bought two panels that I am going to trim slightly to replace one of the 3 grates on my Big Horn grill... I actually have a buddy that received them this weekend for fathers day and say they work just as advertised on his pellet grill.... I will give an update next week when they arrive.
    • never heard of it....  
    • Since we are talking about searing stations, etc....   Has anyone ever used the Grill Grate product on their pellet grills?   https://www.grillgrate.com/shop-grillgrates/standard-grillgrates/pellet-grills/
    • You've got the right idea. There are a ton of bacon recipes here on HSO if you search for bacon - I've pasted one here to what seemed like one of the more popular brines. I made bacon once, and it turned out OK, but it's a long process.  Good luck and let us know how it turn out.
