Thank you in advance!
So I have a 1997, 2 stroke, pull start Mercury 8m outboard motor. Is it possible to make this an electric start? My goal would be to set up a key start ignition, then add a throttle and steering column. If it’s possible what do I need to do!

As they say, anything is possible if you throw enough time and money at it. My advice would be to look up your model on boats.net and see if they have the remote option accessories. It won’t be cheap if you’re buying that all new. You can find out the part #’s and look on eBay for old stock or used. You are probably better off selling the motor and getting a remote controlled one.
