Mariner pilot tube?

Sorry, last silly question of the day

On my console I have an old Faria speedometer that i think runs off a pilot tube, i have seen a kit that you can screw onto the transom but don't really fancy that and afetr a bit of internet rooting around found out that many outboards have already got a pilot tube.

Does anyone know if the old yam bit mariners have them and if so would it be an easy job to hook back up?

I was going to take it out and replace with something else but if it could be made to work it could be fun to keep it...

Pitot tube.

Look for a rubber hose running up the (usually front) leg and exiting the motor along with the wire harness (May be cut short and plugged.) You can also run a thumbnail along the leading edge of the LU and see if you can locate a small (1/16" or smaller) hole that is the actual pitot pickup.

Not sure that's where it is on your Mariner, but it's kind of normal nowadays.
