    Robert I have changed a few of the older models out without much trouble but not any as new as yours. I would say you won't have a whole lot of problems but when you order the kit see if it comes with instructions or buy the manuel for it.
    When you do it take pictures along the way and we will see if some one will add them to the library for futeure referance for another member that might want to venture down that road.

    I have a Yamaha 4-stroke that was a remote motor.but had the tiller installed on it. Took them an hour to do it.
    Also Mercury is coming out with a new tiller handle more like a yamaha. If that helps.
    Also may get you a better price on the older handle also.
    Wish I could get one for this 50 HP Nissan.
