1996 Mariner 2 Stroke details

Hi all

I am trying, and failing, to find the weight information for a Mariner 1996 2 stroke - 60hp engine owned by our Sea Scouts. I know it is heavy, but thats not a lot of help now we are looking to replace it's trailer!

Anyone able to point me in the right direction - a couple of frustrating hours of searching have led to knowing the gap on the spark plugs and the gear ratio but not how much the whole thing is likely to weigh!

cheers

Rich

Is it a Bigfoot model?

Weight is 98kg standard or 107kg for the Bigfoot version.

The Bigfoot has a gear ratio of 2.3:1 and the standard gearbox is 1.64:1.

Spark plug gap is 1mm or 0.040in in old money.

Not that I found.

I rebuilt a pair of them so I bought a manual.

Cheers - is there a good source for buying a dealers service manual? Or are these the holy grail? :-)

Cheers
