Yep, i'm still here...... Welcome to ribnet!

I should pre-empt this and say I'm going entirely form memory here, but you'll find a lot of the clamp / swivel / gearbox parts are shared with most post '79 two stroke Yams between 50 & 90 Hp (there are odd exceptions). Some of the electrical bits (e.g. coils) might be carryover / shared, but as I never needed to replace them I don't know off the top of my head.... Incuidentally, is yours pull start? That's the difference between the "BM" & the "BE".

Mine died of corrosion, (spent years on a mooring before I got it and nobody thought to replace the anodes ) Before I disposed I stripped it of the new parts. Somewhere in the depths the "for sale" directory is a post of with the list of goodies if you're interested. Prices now negotiable! All used, but most not seen more than about 10 hrs on the engine before the corrosion got terminal & the rebuild was abandoned.

If it's spares your after, David Anderson Marine (Dundee) has about 4 (5 now!) that he was breaking for spares.

So that's what they look like with paint on! My Cyl head never looked like that.....

Yeah, the 50 g'box should bolt straight on. I got parts off a 75 leg to replace bits on mine.

Interesting yours has the older "outside rams" clamp bracket. Mine (another 663 serial so supposedly of similar vintage) had the internal tilt assist ram.

Which anode is it you need? My trim tab one will fit, but I am not convinced my clamp one will fit that clamp....

On the "inside ram" versions it's a long bar anode bolted along the bottom of the transom clamp. I just had a look at the Mariner microfiche for this engine and it shows a "disc" anode, again bolted to the bottom of the transom clamp. Mind you if your anode has been doing it's job as well as mine, all I had left were the two bolts that held it on.....

The scary thing is just how close to the truth that statement might be!

I'll need to talk you in, because the link direct to the page is soooo long it won't paste!

Go to http://www.ishopmarine.com/ishop/sec/partlists/ At the top is "mercury marine, and a small search area. Immediately below that, there's links to "Mercury" "Marnier" "Mercruiser" etc etc. Click on "Mariner" and look for the W55. It's an american site, but the diagrams are still valid.

Yam are right down the bottom, but they only go back to 1985.

Sorry to butt in guys ! I have the same engine Yamaha 55 Be 663 serial no - 313236 R which is dated the 1981 going by continuouswave. I have also had a lot of bother trying to identify my engine but theyre really dosent seem to be much info specifically on these engines, only on post 1984 stuff (when yamaha began marketing in america). Anyways the problem im having is with the engine timing im trying to get a figure on the full retarded ignition timing, which going by a manual for later 55's i aquired from a america is 5deg atdc however i have a wee white mark someone has put on the flywheel that indicates 5 deg btdc. Im totally baffelled . Anybody any idea what it should be for certain any help would be much appreciated. Cheers !!!
