So, I'll have to order a few parts (clamp with the screw, spring, washer and nut) and then open the shaft to install.

For now I'll tie with some rope to keep it somewhat near midships.

I had to go look, Sorry No Mercury lable.
4.5 & 15 johnson is on the port side hex head slotted screw.
5 Nessan is on the back plastic wing bolt, with a spring.

I think you had 4 pictures with a extrusion on the rear I don't remember seeing a hole.
if you run a seach for your engine there is a company that has the catalogs for both my Johnsons, covering every part for free. You have to have a part number to buy the part.
Don't forget fasteners need to be lubed, & don't mix lithium & sodium grease. (The chimical formula for mud.)

PS I would like to thank you for the question, When I looked I realized my son had been wrong, about the adjuster on my 15 being broken.
