A few Mercury questions.

What year did the tiller-shift begin? What's the difference between a regular 25 and one with an XD after the hp? Is that the old school bigfoot equivalent? What year is this CL listed motor? http://yuma.craigslist.org/bpo/5677554152.html

I'll take a shot at the first question. I believe they started the tiller shift in 82. A guess on the craiglist motor would be late 80's like 88 maybe, but that could be way off for all I know.
