    Hi hi and thank you. I found the serial and mod number. The motor cover has "mariner" on it, but it's actually a Nissan NS5B! It runs very well, no leaks, motors pretty clean. I was first a bit upset that the guy who sold it to me did not know what it was! But I have read some goods things about the motor. I ordered new decals, I plan on cleaning and painting exterior only. Do you have any advice on cleaning and painting? The prop has paint pealing off of it also. Should I bring that down to bare metal and leave it or rep ain't it. Motor will be used in fresh water only.

    Thanks, John
