Hi, I bought this Mercury as a 9.8 hp but i have my doubts about it, I have done a search on www.marinshopen.se/
with the serial No. and it is between the serial numbers for the 7.5 (9443296-9461525) and the 9.8 (9445986-9467611) the serial number is; 9447908 Belgium so i am abit confused all I know is that it is a 1986
I have fixed the "stuck in gear" problem
though I have a problem with the carb
that got me thinking that it might be a 7.5 as the carb is a WMB-4 as I understand it WMB 1 & 3 = 9.8, WMB 2 & 4 = 7.5 but it could have been replaced in the past.
Is there an easy identification just by looking (I have tried to upload photo's but says "invalid") will try again later as I am going off line soon.
