    Default Help with Japanese Mariner

    I have a Japanese Mariner. I'm trying to find out the year model and where to buy parts for these motors. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Model 30M
    Code 689S

    So I'll give what all the numbers break out to:

    30 - horsepower
    M - manual (rope) start model (so wasn't electric from factory even if it is now)

    689 - Yamaha code that tells you it's a clone (mechanically identical) to a Yamaha model 30AM built between 1979 and 1985.
    S - short shaft (15" transom)

    028642 - is the actual "serial" that indicates it was produced "for Merc" in 1986 - so a year after Yamaha discontinued the model themselves.

    A "professional" is someone who gets paid for their work - it doesn't necessarily mean they are good at it :)
