    Its the same as a Regular 60 just a 2.33:1 gear case
    Not sure if the one you have came as a remote and that's why it is not one it. The dealer added the tiller and not the friction adjust.

    Years ago I had a new 50 horsepower tiller And thought my left arm was going to fall off until I found out about adjusting the trim tab. Made all the difference in the world after I adjusted it.

    I run with guys that use the same motors but in arkansas. Probably won't help but I'll ask for a quick lesson on this topic. The guys I know race in green timber. They probably know how to rig it right. Won't see them until just before Thanksgiving tho.

    This is my guess. I have a hard time believing merc would remove it. Plus the newer model above has it. The shift and throttle linkages that the big tiller uses are the same as the remote models so converting from remote to big tiller isn't hard.

    I forgot to try to get a picture yesterday. I will try to grab one tonight.

    If this happened it pisses me off because I asked multiple times and they said it just doesn't have it anymore. I tried to call Mercury and I got terrible support also. The boat isn't a year old until July so I want to figure it out.

    Did you buy the motor new from a dealer? Because it sounds like exactly what was stated above, a remote converted with a big tiller kit. And I can't imagine a dealership doing that.

    Don't know your exact model, but the parts diagram for a 60 HP 2020 merc 4 stroke tiller shows a tensioner (co-pilot), parts 19-27, so I'd be talking to the dealer about that!
