    Default Mercriser TR not TRS help

    Hi PBer's

    I am looking to get a spare outdrive for my river cruiser. Got an '84 TR behind a Velvet drive / 454

    Looking at a '73 TR that came off a 215 HP Ford with a Mercruiser Tranny.

    Sweet deal with low hours and outta fresh water. I get prop, trim/tilt rams, gimbal housing etc.

    Aside from a having lift ring on the older unit gear housing top they look the same and have same size props and gear ratio.

    Only thing I don't know is if the decade age difference makes any difference.....???

    Anyone smarter than me want to fill me in?

    Thanks!
    Johnny

    Do some research I believe the RH rotation drive are stronger. It could be the other way. I've seen a few there.

    Thanks, I found parts list for both the '73-'76 Merc II TR and the '77-'93 TR/TRS and compared some major part #s....they were all the same.

    Only deviation was the '77-'93 had a "T" behind three of the four bevel gear part numbers.
