Merc power tilt to Evinrude?
I am exchanging a 50 hp Merc for a 48 Evinrude. The Merc has a power tilt unit. The Evinrude does not, but instead has an "assist' type ram with the release on the side.
I'm wondering if I can remove the assist ram from th 48 and swap it for the power tilt from the Merc.

You can do anything if you have enough time and money. However it might be easuer to locate a power tilt unit that fits> I did this on an 88 Johnson. Even then it was a pretty good chore. Good luck.
