I would go and look , but thats the problem with ebay . the chance of winning it are slim.

I think whatever shaft length I end with I will make fit. I will use a hinged mount or maybe rig up a mounting plate on the step ladder on the transom . If it gets stowed below the consul then a short shaft would be easier.

Thanks for all your help Loco good info and pics there mate

Let me know if you did purchase the Merc 4, there is a simple modification from the internal gas tank to the gas hose assy, to help avoid pressure gas leaks.

Be my guest, you are welcome any time, good luck on ebay

Happy Boating...

Found one at last
2 yr old Toghatsu 3.5 hardly used . A guy I kind of know 2oo yds up the road had it for sale .

Glad i waited i nearly bought a new one in the week , a mariner on ebay for 395 .
And the mariner / merc is not the same as the Tohatsu , only the powerhead is tohatsu the legs and covers etc are different

Main advantage i can see with the mariner version is the cover clips on like a normal motor , the tatsu is fidly with loads of screws , I have just serviced it and checked it over and i wouldn't want to remove the covers on the water but it is a bit more compact . At least the carb drain and plug are easy to get at but if the starter chord breaks you have had it .
