This is the serial number 6E9 L 407462, to be honest Have been struggling for a long time to pin down the engines age, the Mariner searial numbers don't seem to make much sence to me
I think it might be the 40C model without autoblend from around 1983 or 1984 but i stand to be corrected.
As per wires coming out from under the flywheel, the are two sets, one wrapped up in blue and one wrapped in black.
One set has what looks like two green wires in it and the other (from memory) has three, brown, red and black.
