help identify/age my outboard?

I've recently bought an avon rib with this mariner 40hp 2 stroke on the back. i'm having trouble identifying the model year. i've been told everything from 1979 to 1998.

i'm sure the decals aren't original. the only other outboard i can find with the same shape cowl is an early 90's yamaha 40 (i know yam, merc & mariner share common parts or in fact entire engines) but i'm at a loss.

any help would be appreciated.

Gut feeing late 80s or 90s.

Could look up the serial number if you didn't mind posting it. I'd give you the link to do it but can't find it at the moment.... someone else might know where.

Yep agree with Beerbelly. That looks a longshaft though and the serial no is for a short I assume with the S. Either my eyes are deceiving or it's been extended I guess.
