I will try and put a video up
Thanks in advance
I had a mariner 40 some years ago yours sounds ok to me mine throbbed a bit on tick over, they use to say there's only two throttle positions for a two stroke wide open and off.
Recently had an old Johnson 15hp throbbed on tick over the same sweet as when you opened her up.
I think gurnard runs a mariner 40 pm him Popeye.
