  7.5+ hp Ser. #384670

This very rare Merc is the most original example of this motor made for A class stock racing known to exist. The powerhead has twice as many reed valves as a standard KE4 and uses the carburetor from the 10hp KF7. The lower gear case is the smaller size unit found on 3.6 and 5hp models. I acquired this motor from a Merc collector from IL in 2001. I first ran it in August of 2002 and have occasionally run it since.
