M-706189-ALU Alpha Series Mercury Quick-Change Trim Anode
- Holds anode to M-706188 Adapter Plate.
- One Allen-cap ss screw for quick change.
- For use with Alpha 1 Gen 2 Mercruiser Stern/Outdrive
- Made in USA by Sea Shield Marine
These aluminum Alpha series inboard/outboard sterndrive quick-change anodes mount on, and protect, the casing of the hydraulic rams that lift your outdrive out of the water.
They are notoriously difficult to install so Sea Shield Marine has re-designed them to be much easier to install than competing models.
No more hidden fasteners in hard-to-reach locations, these use a thin permanently installed aluminum mounting bracket/adapter plate, which bolts to the lift arm using the original hole pattern.
The replaceable aluminum trim tab anode then easily installs on the bracket with only a single, easily accessible Allen cap screw.
A clever mating design keeps the anode firmly in place, in spite of being held by just one fastener.
