Boat Construction
IMPORTANT: All applicable Coast Guard regulations for INBOARD engines must be complied
with, when constructing engine compartment.
Care must be exercised in the design and construction of the engine compartment. Seams must be located so that any rain water or splash, which may leak
through the seams, is directed away from the engine
and carburetor cover. Also, the passenger compartment drainage system should not be routed directly
to the engine compartment. Water that runs on or is
splashed in the carburetor cover may enter the
engine and cause serious damage to internal engine parts.
combustion chambers and severely damage the
engine. Damage caused by water in the engine
will not be covered by Mercury Marine Limited
Warranty, unless this damage is the result of
defective part(s).
The engine must be properly located to ensure that
water will not enter the engine through the exhaust
system. Determine the correct engine height by taking measurements (a) and (b), with boat at rest in the
water and maximum load aboard. Subtract (b) from
(a) to find (c). If (c) is less than specified in chart, boat
construction must be altered to properly lower waterline relative to exhaust elbow.
IMPORTANT: Mercury Marine will not honor any
warranty claim for engine damage as a result of
water entry.

Engine Compartment Ventilation
Engine compartment must be designed to provide a
sufficient volume of air for engine breathing and also
must vent off any fumes in engine compartment in
accordance with industry standards (ABYC, NMMA,
etc.), federal standards and Coast Guard regulations
for inboard engines. Pressure differential (outside engine compartment versus inside engine compartment) should not exceed 2 in. (51mm) of water (measured with a manometer) at maximum air flow rate.

Exhaust System
Remove plastic plug from fuel inlet fitting. Attach
fuel line to fuel fitting with hose clamp. Inspect for
fuel leaks.
IMPORTANT: It is the responsibility of the boat
manufacturer, or installing dealer, to properly
locate the engine. Improper installation may
allow water to enter the exhaust manifold and
1. Fuel tank should be mounted below carburetor(s)
level (if possible) or gravity feed may cause carburetor fuel inlet needle(s) to unseat, and flooding
may result.

2. Fuel pickup should be at least 1 in. (25mm) from
the bottom of the fuel tank to prevent picking up
impurities.
We recommend the use of Quicksilver Instrumentation and Wiring Harness(es). Refer to “Quicksilver
Accessories Guide” for selection.
3. Fuel lines used must be Coast Guard approved
(USCG type A1), fittings and lines must not be
smaller than 5/16 in. (8mm) I.D.
4. On installations requiring long lines or numerous
fittings, larger size lines should be used.
If other than Quicksilver electrical accessories are to
be used, it is good practice to use waterproof ignition
components (ignition switch, lanyard stop switch,
etc.). A typical jet boat of this nature will see water
splashed on these components. Therefore, precautions must be taken to avoid ignition failure due to
shorting out of ignition components.
5. Fuel line should be installed free of stress and
firmly secured to prevent vibration and/or chafing.
! WARNING
6. Sharp bends in fuel line should be avoided.
7. A flexible fuel line must be used to connect fuel
line to engine fuel pump to absorb deflection
when engine is running.
8. A primer bulb is not necessary with this application. If a primer bulb is used, it must be Coast
Guard approved for inboard engine applications.
Sudden stopping of engine (shorting ignition
components) while boat is underway will cause
loss of steering control due to loss of thrust. This
loss of steering control may cause property damage, personal injury or death.
A warning horn must be incorporated in the wiring
harness (see wiring diagram) to alert the user of an
overheat or low oil condition.
IMPORTANT: If a warning horn system is not
installed by the boat manufacturer, Mercury
Marine will not honor any warranty claims for
engine damage as a result of overheating or lack
of engine oil.

Route instrumentation wiring harness back to engine,
making sure that harness does not rub or get pinched.
If an extension harness is required, be sure to secure
connection properly. Fasten harness(es) to boat at
least every 18 in. (460 mm), using appropriate fasteners.

! CAUTION
If a fused accessory panel is to be used, it is recommended that a separate circuit (properly
fused) be used from the battery to the fuse panel
with sufficient wire size to handle the intended
current load.
NOTE: The charging system on these engines is
capable of producing 9 amps maximum charge at
3500 RPM (4.5 amps minimum at 1000 RPM). The
electrical load of the boat should not exceed this
capacity. If loads higher than the capacity of the
charging system are anticipated, refer to “Quicksilver
Accessory Guide” for a high output alternator.

Impeller Selection
IMPORTANT: Installed impeller must allow engine
to run in its specified maximum wide-openthrottle RPM range.
The jet drive comes equipped with a standard stainless steel impeller which allows the engine to operate
in its specified operating range.
If a different impeller is installed in place of the standard impeller, it is the responsibility of the installer to
ensure engine RPM remains in specified range. Specified engine WOT RPM range is listed in “Operation
and Maintenance Manual” attached to the engine.
Remote Control and Cables
To ensure proper shift and throttle operation, we recommend the use of a Morse MV2 “special” remote
control. This control has been qualified by Mercury to
be used for the Sport Jet and provides the following
features:
•
Start-in-Neutral Protection
•
Fast Idle Speed Limit at 1800 RPM
•
Increased Strength to Compensate for Higher
Shift Loads Transmitted Through the Shift
Cable
•
Shift Cable Travel of 2.50 inches (63.5 mm)
3.50 ± .10 inches (88.9 ± 2.5 mm).
! WARNING
Failure to limit steering cable travel at the helm
could pre-load the cable resulting in premature
failure of a steering component causing loss of
steering. This loss of steering could cause property damage, personal injury or death.
STEERING CABLE
The steering cable to be used must meet the following
criteria.
•
Allow for a minimum of 3.75 inches (95.3 mm)
of travel.
•
Cable end at pump must allow for a shouldered thru-bolt to connect the cable to the
steering arm.
•
A means of attaching and locking the cable to
the steering cable bracket (provided).
•
Protected against water intrusion and/or corrosion as the cable end (at the pump) is submersed in water with the boat at rest.
A locking tab is provided by Mercury to be used with
a cable having threads and locknuts located 11.31
inches (287 mm) from cable end at pump with cable
at center of travel.
If a control other than the Morse MV2 “special” remote
control is to be used, the control must meet the above
criteria as well as be approved by Mercury Marine
Engineering.
Contact Mercury Marine Distribution for availability of
this control box.
SHIFT CABLE
The shift cable end (at the pump) is submersed in
water. It should be sealed against water intrusion,
protected against corrosion and be able to withstand
the shift loads imparted on it by the reverse gate.
Follow shift cable adjustment procedure for proper
adjustment.
THROTTLE CABLE
The throttle cable must have one end compatible with
the control box. The other end must have Mercury
style connectors.
Follow throttle cable adjustment procedures for
proper adjustment.

METHODS OF CONTROLLING LOCATION AND SIZE
CHECKING MOUNTING FLANGE THICKNESS AND
FLATNESS
If the tunnel area in the plug is correct, the boat bottom mold should repeat and reproduce the tunnel
area which will aid the cut out process.
Use a flat plate that will contact the flange at the reference points (b) and a .030 in. feeler gauge to check
flatness.
A reference area for the cut out can be produced on
the plug and bottom mold as a raised area or a cutting
guide.
Additional sanding and/ or resin/ filler may be required to maintain the flatness specification.
A simple slotted go/ no go gauge (c) will check the
flange thickness.
Location pins (a) that would project into the internal
hull area could simplify the cut out process.
These location pin holes could allow the use of a 1 1/2
inch diameter hole saw to cut the four corner radii and
use of a reciprocating saw or router template to connect the four holes.

Bilge Siphon Feature
a
The Sport Jet incorporates an automatic bilge siphoning feature. The bilge siphon is working whenever the
engine is running. Two hoses are attached to the jet
pump nozzle. The hoses are routed to the engine
compartment and placed on each side of the jet tunnel. Water exiting the nozzle creates a suction or vacuum in the hoses creating the bilge siphon.
Installing Bilge Siphon
1. Attach the two hoses supplied to the hose barbs
located at the center rear of the drive housing cover.
c. Shift control box to reverse and repeat step b.
(above).
NOTE: In neutral, the reverse gate covers approximately 3/4 of the rudder opening.
2. Attach the hoses to the transom with the hose
clips supplied.
IMPORTANT:
3. Position each siphon break (a) a minimum of 8
in. (203 mm) above pump cover.
IMPORTANT: After any adjustments are made
shift control box through entire range and recheck reverse gate clearance to rudder (step 5
preceding) and reverse gate stops (step 11 ).
NOTE: Be sure shift cable swivel does not interfere
with stator mounting bolt (b) through-out entire shift
range.

Oil Injection System
! CAUTION
Oil injected engines must be run on a 50:1 gasoline/oil mixture in the fuel tank for the first 12 gallons of fuel. Refer to engine break-in procedures
in the Operation & Maintenance Manual.
1. Mount the oil reservoir in a suitable location.
IMPORTANT: Oil Reservoir must be mounted
higher than the oil pump. Oil is gravity fed to the
oil pump.
2. Connect reservoir oil hose (a) to inlet barb on oil
pump.
b
5. Test the low oil warning alarm by turning the key
switch to the “ON” position. With no oil in the reservoir, the alarm should sound a constant tone. If
no warning is emitted check wiring and battery
leads.
6. Fill the reservoir with recommended two cycle oil.
Turn the key switch to “ON” and recheck alarm
system, no alarm should sound. If the warning
does sound, there is a problem with the float
switch. Make sure the switch is mounted in a vertical position.
7. Follow the oil line from the reservoir to the oil
pump. There should be no air in the line. If air is
present, loosen bleed screw and bleed air out until oil is present. Tighten bleed screw.
8. Secure oil inlet hose at oil pump and oil reservoir
with sta-straps provided. The oil injection system
is now operational.
