They'll fit. You have to drill the holes. this one has free shipping. https://www.ebay.com/itm/MERCURY-MER...1&isGTR=1#shId
Best money you will spend. Never worry about losing water pressure.

I currently have 8 holes. I was under the assumption i would utilize two of those holes to mount the plates
Such that one plate has threads and the other plate through hole for the bolt. Basically sandwiching the lower unit
95 xri 200hp

Will pm a pic.

Nope. You have to drill and tap. https://www.screamandfly.com/showthr...emaster-finish

This thread has a pic on a 8 hole Merc. The ones I used were like this and had a middle screw that did go in a plug that went in one of the holes. But the top and bottom were drilled and tapped. Sort of a nuisance I guess but they work. You could make your own if you had access to some SS metal.

You could through bolt that. Just make sure you have 3/16" open on front and mostly closed on back. I would probably make my own for that application.

Thanks Mark for all your insight

Few things, apparently my prop is a 19 quicksilva 2.

Besides that i went ahead and did my LU gear oil to find water in there.

Priorities first, can you recommend a parts place to get all seals needed and a water pump? Any other knowledge you have as to what to look for or change as i am in there?
LU is currently pulled off. Sourcing a repair place or insight on doing it myself

Have you ever used that website? Seems a bit sketchy?
