    I don't know if it will, as "newer" Mercs are labeled as Alpha or Bravo, 1 or 2. You need to post this question in the STERNDIRVE section, as that's what you have- an I/O inboard/outboard, or otherwise known as a sterndrive, not an inboard. Good luck, and remember, there's always ebay!

    The rear mounts are the same. The 170 is longer and has a different location for the front mount.
