Bit lost there Nos, it hooks into the engine at the back in two equal halves, comes together at the front,like a clamshell I guess, spring to hold the two parts together and then a flap to hide the spring. And it is plastic.

One side is very scorched inside and a tad burnt in places from a small fire :-) Guess this doesn't help with identification, but its accurate.

Its looking to me like its 1986ish, (no wonder its reached end of life) can anyone help or confirm for me?

Its a mariner 75hp serial no is 9483086
http://www.storesonline.com/site/573683/page/609774 seems to confirm its about 1986

I think you're going to be very lucky if you don't have to change powerheads or buy a new engine-it'll probably be a lot cheaper.

Thanks for the confirmation re year and the PM Nos, I'll post an update when the investigations have commenced. I'm preparing myself for a new engine.

Timing is a tad off as I'm getting married in 5 weeks and any diversion of cash will have a very dim view taken I suspect :-)

So a boat fund will need to be set up in the new marital home if a new engine is the outcome.

Regards all

Are you marrying an Oldham girl? I did, and have found an argument that works with her most of the time - just tell her it will be a lot safer (and if/when you have kids the effect seems to be 10x stronger)
