Ex RNLI Mariner 40 outboard- is it inversion proof?

Hello,
Tried to find it but failed. Bought a/m engine some time ago. It is said to be ex RNLI. Can anyone tall me how to check whether it's been fitted with the system? (attaching photos if that's any help)


Thanks

From the pictures - same perspective - it look as if the air box is standard - therefore not immersion proof.

It's easy to identify RNLI immersion proofing as it will clearly have "home made" modifications to the air box plus other solenoids, tilt switches and fuel valves etc

put a picture of the other side on this site.I see it has the brackets for remote controll, not fitted on a R.N.L.I.40 hp outboard of that period.What is the serial number is it a long shaft? If it is it is not an ex R.N.L.I. obm.

Thanks, however a bit disappointed... I thought the main change would be to carburetors?

What we did to the carbs for the R.N.L.I. was took out the carburetor bowl drain plugs and put a fitting in that had a hose to a tap on the side of the bottom tray that was then connected to ,two spigots out to the water.If you turned over what happened was the taps were opened and clean fuel put into the carbs,the sparkplugs were removed and the obm pulled over to get rid od the water inside the power head, then two new clean dry spark plugs fitted, the new spark plugs were in the tool kit which wa in a wallet in a tool box holder under the top cowl.

It's a standard shaft (i think). The remotes might have been fitted later it was used on speedboat with remotes afterwards. I will check the serial no today. If it is not fitted with a/m can it be retrofitted and how much would it cost (just curious).
Thanks

just look on the serial number plate it should be(if my memory is correct) 639 S/L then a number,I dont belive it is/was an ex R.N.L.I. obm but I would like a picture of the port side of the obm to either verify or agree.The cost I now have no idea sorry.

As said that is a standard engine

E.P. Barrus are UK importers for Mercury, Mariner and Yanmar so are "suppliers" to a lot of organisations

That is an ex R.N.L.I. obm, it left the w/shops in 1994, where the four grommets are was where the drain taps were fitted ,
M R 40 = motor 40hp
12-94 = the twelth obm of the 1994 batch,
The R.N.L.I. went to the American 40hp, twin cyl, single carb, when your obm was no longer made.
