I'm going to put a 1985 75 hp. Johnson on my 1972 Whaler.
It had a mercury outboard before. I would appreciate any tips about this procedure. Thanks in advance for any info.

Assuming that the mounting bolts don't match up correctly, you'll first need to remove the Mercury and plug the old holes.
Do a search about repairing holes in the transom. If I recall correctly, using DOWELS was NOT recommended, but rather a series of plugs of marine grade plywood and then epoxied in and patched.
To do this correctly, you're looking at probably two weekends...one for removal and repair, and another for the new install.
Good luck in your search...I hope that keeps you busy gathering information until more is posted here.
