Mariner 40, charging

Hi all,

I have a mariner 40, 3 cylinder, pull start, 2 stroke outboard. Id on side of outboard reads 6E9.
The outboard is on a rib, which is kitted out with radio, GPs and lights. The questions are hopefully easy.

Are the outboards already rigged with a charging circuit, and if so, what wires do I need to take from the outboarrd and where, to be able to charge the batteries.
Can the outboard be converted to electric start and if so, what items will require replacing.

Many thanks for any help.

Mariner 40 Charging

You will need to fit a rectfier (small electronic component) on to the engine then run a connection from the rectifier to a 12 vot battery. On my old Mariner 40 this supplied enough power to run a fish finer ( Hummingbird) and a rule bilge pump.

I was never able to find a cost effective electric start retro fit.
