Mechanical Assistance Required; Bristol, South West & M4 Corridor

Having spent a fair amount of time on my new to me 10HP Mariner OB, Iím coming to the realisation that it needs a little input from someone who has the knowhow and experience in dealing with fine tuning these motorsÖI thought I had created a fine running machine, however its maiden voyage on Sunday wasnít as smooth as I hoped.

From everything Iíve read, I think it just needs a little finessing specifically concerning the carb set up, choke and idle; hopefully nothing major, however I need some human interaction in diagnosing its faults!

I thought Iíd test the waters here first for an Ďenthusiasticí member locally who might be willing to help, failing that perhaps professional recommendations that wonít break the bank. Of course the alternative is to throw in eBay and pick up something with a more reliable and consistent history. I live in Bristol, but travel around a bit with family all over the place and work keeping me busy, let me know if you think you might be able to help.

Thanks for all your comments previously,
