Mariner 2hp

I've picked a Mariner 2 up for peanuts for the kids to use behind a 2.3m dinghy. I think that it may have been dunked as the condenser looks rusty. It turns over a treat and appears to have plenty of compression but no spark. Does anyone have any tips on getting the flywheel off? I've tapped it and prised it but i'm afraid to go at it too hard. Do I need a puller? Thanks.

Make sure you check the obvious things before taking the flywell off, dodgy on/off kill switch etc.

Thanks ADS, i did check that one. The condenser wire has rubbed against the flywheel and all but worn through.

You need a puller- Just had the same headache myself with my 4hp evinrude auxiliary.

Make sure you get the right type of puller- a 3 or 2-legged one may not fit (they don't fit my evinrude).

If there's 3 bolt-holes in the flywheel in a triangle around the centre nut you need one that fits those bolts.

I have one of these "ancient mariners"every 2-3 years after winter mine seems to not start,don't worry about feeler gauges,just open up a small gap in the contacts and she will fire.How badly chafed is this wire?If it's still whole i'd leave it.

Ah, Thanks Dino, I'll give it a try.
