    Mercury experimented with numerous lower unit designs in the Quicksilver era, including some extended prop shaft designs for straightaway records. Del Snyder has a poster of maybe 10-12 different ones. I don't know if this was just an in-house poster or for general release. I should try to get a picture of it someday. Cooper Jess has probably seen it as well.

    Leek and Strang said there were at least 9 in the Mark25H program alone. I would really like to see that poster too!
    Since 1925, about 150 different racing outboards have been made.

    The engine was owned by a Mercury dealer in MN. He kept it in a case in his home. It will be in the museum Alan is building.
