You MAY (or may not) have to trim that baffle in the Mercury pan to clear the Ford pick-up tube. You also should beware of the possible difference in proximity of the Ford pick-up with the bottom of the Merc pan. Do you know if that "Merc" engine does IN FACT have the Merc oil pick-up? If it does, I'd say that IS likely a REAL Merc engine.

Are you using an old Ford 3-speed trans? DD

It's interesting that so many people know SO MUCH stuff....that just ain't so!
