    I recently bought a 2004 Mercury tiller 40ELH EFI S/N OT939237. It has electric start and manual tilt. I ordered the power tilt and trim kit, but the mercury rep said there was no kit to convert from tiller to remote steering and start. They suggested I contact my local mercury service rep for this conversion. Is it possible to convert this motor, or am I only dreaming.

    The rep may be right, in the sense there may not be an actual kit available. Get online and look at the diagram and note the parts that are different and buy those.
