True but I don't recall Yamaha built any Mariner badged 90's, can you ? I thought the biggest were 55/60 models.

early mariners up to and inc 40hp, plus the two cylinder 55, were yams. Above that they were mercs.
been there done that. My 40hp mariner was identical to m'mates 40yam...except for paint job, hood, fuel tank and tank end connector..oh and the alleged 100:1 oil ratio for the yam and 50:1 for the mariner. In practise we ran both at somewhere around a lean 50:1. The wiring loom in the mariner had yamaha branded bits in it. The only things that ever went wrong with it were the merc bits! The merc tank end fuel connector fell to pieces at sea and required the fiddly bits finding in the drain well. The suction pipe fell off inside the tank in the middle of a busy shipping lane and was fixed at sea with a piece of the poly tubing we used as a conduit for the boats wiring. Couldn't believe that the internal tank suction pipe was simply a push fit with no securing clip.
