Mariner 40 outboard identification

hi, I've recently purchased this outboard and I want to get a tiller for it but I'm having some problems with the engine number. According to the numbers it should be a long shaft electric start, but the shaft measures 17" and there is no electric start? Can anyone shed any light on what the mix up could be?

Thanks roofer I'll try and track one down, does your catalog list a different type of cutout switch as it only has the button not the cord type?

Hey Bieny,

The Ex RNLI 40hp tiller control (D class useage) have a mid length shaft (not short at 15 inch and not long at 20 inch as well as a push button kill switch rather than a lanyard type.....that said, they have tiller control but I guess this may have been removed by a previous owner?

I suppose it could be that your OB is ex RNLI (these models would have been in use before my time with the Institution).

You might try dropping a PM to either Uncle Al or MChappelow.....they are both great sources of knowledge on all things Barrus and RNLI respectively....

Could be completely wrong, but its a possibility.....

hi
i have just checked your obm is a 1987 vintage have you got a fax number because the shaft length is not correct i believe you might be measuring in the wrong places, the shaft should be for an ELO 20inches, a short shaft is 15 inches and usually a manual start.
at a guess yours looks like a mixture, electrics removed at a guess

Hi Bieny,
We have got a couple of tiller handles complete with cables in good condition. Do you have the anchor points for the cables in the lower cowl? If you are interested in one call us on 01903 762610.

Uncle Al. You are getting forgetful in your advanced years!
Gordon,
Aquatec Marine Engineering.

Thanks Gordon ill give you a call tomorrow. Do you also have the lanyard type of cutout switch?

Still puzzled by the engine?! Ive measured it acording to Uncle Al's drawings, it looks like it might be a short shaft.

Is the outboard i've attached a picture of a long shaft or extra long as it has an extra 'fin' that mine doesn't have above the cavitaion plate.
