Here's what you're looking for:

Fulton Transom Adapter Fulton Boat Trailer Parts FTA6000134

Note that you have to buy the tilt bracket separately, which slides into this.
"The TA600 is designed for use with Fulton 1000, 1400 and 1700 series adjustable motor mounts. Just lift the motor and slide the mount bracket angles into the TA600. A conveniently placed lock pin hole allows the motor to be secured to the transom adapter. Includes all necessary stainless steel mounting hardware"

Rated for 20HP and 120# 2 stroke / 5hp 4 stroke. -> This lower 4 stroke limit is completely ridiculous, 4 strokes have LESS low end torque than 2 strokes thats why 2 strokes completely dominated dirtbike racing for 35 years. As long as you're within the weight limit I think you'll be fine, but that's up to you. I don't think a 77# 7.5 HP motor is exactly pushing the envelope here.

I have to completely agree here. My 80lb. Honda sat just fine on a 2-stroke motor mount for 35 years (that is all that was available back then) and when I took the mount off the boat to clean and lube it, there was very little damage (it WAS twisted a little). I now have a 57 lb. motor on it and works even better. IF you are running a big kicker, say 10 or 15hp and a heavy boat, then sure, but if you already have a mount, don't just toss it unless it's not working.
Best of luck
