    More likely a Mk40, KG9's didn't generally come with the rewind. Diecast clamps, but sandcast block screwed on clam shell cover.

    Definitely not related to the WA Super25 all diecast, tin wrap around cover used until they were all plastic

    I think you are right on the M40.
    In 1958 at Dade Marine in Miami, we had 2 KG9's, both had rewinds, and one KF9, no rewind and gear drive mag. I think on the first KG9's it could have been an option. The boss told me I could have them as no one would buy them anyway. My friend and I had a good time with them.
    I never saw a plastic cover on a WA- 25, or die cast (fat) clamps. I remember them having the same clamps and exhaust housing as a Mark 20. I think the die cast clamps were gone by then. We called those clamps on the M40 forged clamps. The KF9 did have die cast clamps, or the fat ones, at least the one we had did. Mercury didn't waste time with board meetings changing things that didn't hold up back then. ECK was the board. We had a lot of Wizard 25's come and go thru the shop. We even put a WA 25 crank in a M58 and made a sleeper 25.
    Sam, correct me on the clamps please.

    This engine is a KG9-1. Sho ain't no MK-40. Only other possibility, a KG9 updated with newer rewind.

    The KG9 was 40 c.i. & sand cast block. It evolved to the MK40. The Western Auto 25 was actually the 30 c.i. powerhead eith only 2 openings in the reed cages on both sides & just a cover plate over the intake ports rather then the traditional port covers & different carbs. This came in the mid 50's whereas the KG9 was early 50's.
