easiest way will be to take the lid off and count the number of cylinder/plugs/HT leads.

I do not have the full serial number of the outboard but it appears to be a 2 cylinder it is also a 2 stroke which runs on 100-1 premix the engine code is 55BE and underneath it has 663 stamped on the plate. It does appear to be very similar to a mariner engine I looked at on ebay,but I have no real experience of outboards so please any help would be great

Thats the one !!!

Thanks Jizm , it is definitely the 2nd motor the one on ebay , though to be fair the first one also looks identical. do you know anything about these motors ? they seem to be popular in the states , not sure about europe . Sorry I took my time to get back to you I had a family problem . the one on ebay has very similar serial numbers and looks identical. Please any more info would be great Martin
