    This is my first boat and outboard and im finding it all very interesting!

    You will need to post how many cylinders it has just so we can even narrow it down to a number of possibilities.

    The number of cylinders, plus the casting numbers from one of the carbs (if multiple) will provide the first clues as to what you have..."

    "Sorry Dan, you almost got lost there.

    You (He) has/have a 1985 Inline-6 often referred to as a "Tower of Power".

    Decent motors however the design was scrapped a year or two after that motor was made. They do have a bit of a following out there, but they are by no means a collectable or anything like that.

    If it's in decent running shape you may get 500 bucks for it, maybe a 100 or 200 more if it's quite exceptional."

    "Hi Graham,
    Thanks for the quick response.
    I'm now told by the previous owner that it has 3 cylinders and that he believes it to be a Model 700 70hp outboard. Does that help narrow it down?
    Any more info would be great.
    Other than that i can try to take the cowling off tommorow to get a closer look.
    Thanks again.

    "Mark, that really helps. That would make it a 1978, 3 cylinder, model 700, 70 horse Merc.

    You can mix this at 50:1 - regular unleaded (86/87 octane with no more than 15% ethanol) and TCW-3 rated marine 2 cycle oil will work fine.

    As to manuals - a Merc service manual for this model is still available at a Merc dealer - part number 90-861355 but pricey at about 70 bucks - for all round maint etc, Seloc's has an excellent series of manuals (about 35 bucks) - just have to grab the one for 3/4 cylinder models of your particular vintage.."

    Default hi there my friend and i have

    hi there
    my friend and i have just bought a small fishing boat with a 40hp mariner engine and i was hoping to find any information i can about it. after being stood for 3 years i managed to get it going but not sure wether it's a 2 or 4 stroke and if 2 stroke we have no idea of the fuel to oil ratio. we used a 50-1 mix to get it started. the only number i could find was on a plate in pretty bad condition but i think it's 676bs00178. we are trying to find year etc in order to obtain parts.
    thanks for your help.

    "Hello again Graham,
    Thanks for the useful info regarding my 1978 3 cylinder, model 700, 70 hp Mercury outboard.
    What i need to find out asap is the amperage charge output of the alternator in this engine? I want to charge 2 12v 85ah batteries separately one for starting and one for aux services. I have seen a 30A SPLIT CHARGE RELAY KIT - INTELLIGENT SELF SWITCHING unit on ebay ( http://tinyurl.com/6o9qrq )do you think this would be ok to use with this engine?
    Any help on this would be appreciated.

    Default "Mike Bronson, it's a litt

    "Mike Bronson, it's a little tough to tell exactly what you have there.

    The 1250's were 125 horse models (only built in 1968/69), the 1100 were 110 horse models (only built in 1966/67). If it is a 115 horse it would have been a model 1150.

    The "Thunderbolt" indicates that it had Merc's (new at the time) Thunderbolt ignition that replaced the earlier Phelon ignitions. The Thunderbolt, which although modified along the line, is still in use today, did away with points/condesors. It was probably the best 2 stroke ignition ever designed...

    I don't know what that number is that you found. The problem with Merc's is, even if you find the serial it will not help identify the horsepower and it sounds like the hood has been cobbled together from spare parts. You may have to try and find casting numbers on the carbs to ultimately identify exactly what you have there..."

    "Mike, anytime a motor has sat, at minimum you should change/replace:

    spark plugs
    impellor
    lower gear oil

    fully inspect all wiring/hoses for rot/frays/breaks etc

    if the rpms stumble at all, at idle or anywhere else that's a good indication that the carb(s) need removal, disassembly and cleaning. Additionally, the diaphram in the fuel pump could be deteriorated, so it's something to keep an eye on. Any fuel issues, do the carbs/fuel pump...."

    Default I found the serial # on this m

    I found the serial # on this mystery motor. It's 2480805. It says 1100 with 2 lightening bolts. Does that mean its the 1100ss model? It also is a short shaft. I have redone all the wiring in the motor. What other componants should be replaced? I also checked the lower unit oil and it looked OK. I was told that all cylinders had 125 comp. except one which had alot less. Would that be rings or a leaking/blown head gasket?
    What else can you tell me about these motors? I appreciate all the info. MIKE

    "Alfred, the motor is an 82 Yamaha built Mariner. The price for the whole package sounds ok. A new 16 foot aluminum utility may run 2k, add another 700 bucks for a trailer and a new 25 horse will go for about 3k - so 6000-7000 bucks new. But only you can decide if 1500 is fair for a 25+ year old motor and and a boat approaching 40 years old....

    Greg, that is a 1989 model."

    I have a Mariner 5M sn 661 034994 that I need to do some work to. I have Googled dozens of serial number guides and can't nail this one down. The manual has a revision date of 1979 so I'm assuming my motor is no older than that.
