I was getting cranky with some pitting on what I thought was my good 700 crank.
It will work fine but to be safe I have another one.

There is some pitting on the crank top, but it is the edge where the fly wheel ends and under the bearing ring which is sealed inside.

I added marker to the crank, 10 thou shin and put the top cap with new bearing and seal.
Spun it around to see the mark where it seals.

Surface is clean!!!!

Got the Merc 500 block all buttoned up. All new bolts and nuts were used for the crank case, exhaust cover and cylinder cover. I was able to source the locking nuts needed. I use some flange sealant on gaskets. Loctite non hardening on the crank case.

1956 Mark 30 is all buttoned up.
Just need to add the oil drain line.
Interesting that they had it on the top to the middle of the block and then on Mark 55’s and onwards it went from the middle to the bottom.

Getting Merc 700 GS end caps ready.
I drill a hole in the lower crank seal and save big bucks by not buying Merc ones.
The bottom cap uses 2 seals, one with the hole and one without.

Just to be safe because of some pitting where the fly wheel seats. Put some marker on the crank shaft, put the top cap on with .008 thou shim to see where the seal will sit. Spun the crank, we have a good sealing area.

The magneto / distributor arms on the crank covers often get really stiff from old hardened grease, I always take these apart and clean them up.

Mark 30 tiller is off and all apart to be cleaned and reassembled.
We are not repainting this motor except the gear case.
This is a nice original survivor.

Dang, we have a bad pinion gear which explains the slip in the tiller handle.
Time to start searching for that part.

Can you turn it 180 degrees?  It only turns about half a turn in service.

I tried that, the hole for the locking pin does not align spinning it 180.
That was going to be my last resort. I have a donor pinion coming from Mr. Dave B ( :arrow: )

I checked and when near WOT the bad gears could be engaged.
Rather have a good gear.

Tiller handle assembly all cleaned, once we get the replacement gear we will continue on.
The parts are roughly laid out where they are installed.

Merc 700 GS distributor assembly all cleaned and ready for assembly.
Lots of elbow grease as you can see a nice original one beside it.

The large spring is painted cloud white and is the original paint, will leave it as is.
A little bit original patina.

Distributor tower all assembled. These generally are very stiff if they are not taken apart and cleaned.
There are 2 bearings inside and more often then not the bearings are worn and need replacing.
During assembly, make sure you attach the throttle attachment parts or you won’t get it on after.

Got my last winter block assembled, 61 Merc 700 GS.

Always add a little white lithium grease to the O rings for the end caps.
I used mostly all new nuts and bolts for this block.

I use my propane torch to heat up the old rubber hose on the bleed lines. The crimp then pops right off. The crimp did not get burnt, it had some black on it that came right off. I am very careful with ones that have the valve. Then I open the crimps using a punch and then my pliars to open them a bit more. Onto the wire wheel for the brass parts and clean the crimps and ready to be installed.
