I do believe that is correct... 3 dots for Mercury...The dots signify the production introduction to market... Pegusus was the first engine AMT made, Olympus was second and Mercury was third..I am almost certain that Olympus was out before Mercury..

I have actually ran my mercury with a my Olympus fuel pump. Everything worked fine. I'm not sure if there is any difference in the pump gears.

1 dot peg

3 dot merc

they push different volume of fuel due to gearing in pump head
