                This switch is just a tad larger than the OEM part but it still works great and best of all it was so easy to install. I was surprised to find it in your catalog....thank you

                  Make sure to talk to the help desk and get the right one. I called to make sure as there are two different ones, easy to install and works great. The only bad thing is that it does not fit tight in the hole and turns tillyou really wrench it down.

                      A:

                      This is a replacement for Mercury control box switches. This should work for you if your switch is mounted in the control (throttle) box.
