It would depend on the motor.I had a 65 and 77 Merc 500 ,50 horsepower for you younger folks.
Both used bolt on tiller handles very easy.And used a key and choke set in a small ignition panel installed on the boat.
Some motors you would have to change the whole belly pan and gears from the handle.Some here may be able to help with what is required if you
give the HP, Make and Model number.I saw the other day that the old OMC fat 50s could be had with a tiller.That must have been a bear to handle.
