Mariner 40 2 stroke

40 3 cylinder = 93kg
40 2 cylinder = 75kg

This is straight out of the latest mariner catologue so should be correct, hope this helps

Just out of interest though and as i love statistical figure the 40 4 stroke is as follows:

40 4 Stroke EFI = 98kg
40 4 Stroke = 93kg
40 4 Stroke Big foot = 120kg

So the non efi 4 stroke is interestingly the same weight as the 3 cylinder 2 stroke !!

And even more interestingly than this is the following:

the 3 cylinder 40 hp 2 stroke produces 29.4KW of energy which is exacly the same as the 40 4 stroke EFI and the none EFI model, the only difference is the gear ratio of 1.83:1 for the 2 stroke 3 cylinder against both the 4 strokes 2.00:1 for the EFI and the non EFi model, however the bigfoot has an increade gear ratio of 2.33:1 !!!

I was thinking more like an old 40 2 stroke circ.1985/90. I guess thats 75kg's.

Thanks guys,

Buy the way! what application would you use a "Bigfoot" Outboard for, commercial or where high loads/weights are to be encountered?
