Help Tip: If you have a question that has not been answered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new thread of your own. By starting your own thread, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum members.

Below are some additional forum policies in hopes of all iboats members will follow, Thank you.

1. Please do not reply to old topics or hijack existing topics. Old topics of a technical nature are like a library book, Please do not write in them.

2. Old topics should be considered archives and used for reference only. Please do not reply to them.

3. Do not take over someone elseís topic (aka hijack) with your own question, even if it is similar. If you have a question that has not been covered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new topic of your own.

4. If you have a question for the original poster (OP) and the topic is over 30 days old, send the OP a PM, he may not even visit the forums any longer, or may not notice your question in the old topic.

5. By starting your own topic, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum helpers that may not even notice your question when itís posted at the end of someone elseís topic. And those answers will be specific to your particular issue.

6. Please do not post to topics that have been inactive for more than 3 months unless you are the original poster. We have very active forums and any topic that remains inactive for that long should be considered "dead". It is especially confusing when there is an entirely new question posted to an old topic.

7. Posting at the end of any topic is considered to be hijacking the original posters topic which in turn subjects the topic to be closed if it continues to happen thus not making it fair to the original poster in the future had for some reason he/she needed to return for additional information or provide an update of the problem solved which is always welcomed within a reasonable amount of time frame.

8. Please note that you should see a red banner pop up near the bottom of each inactive topic asking you not to reply to old topics. The Red banner will read: Please note this topic has been inactive for 90 days. For the best results, please start a new topic.

Thank you all in advance for doing your part in helping iboats run a smooth ship.

            We could try and help you with your problem but what is it that you are looking for? Is this a Mercury engine? If it is an engine, what horsepower, year, number of cylinders or any other information you might have.

              It is a Mercury. 9.8 as far as i was told when i bought it. Which puts it in the 1980's. 2 cylinder. serial number is from block, the identification plate is missing. If you need more let me know.

                Having a difficult time tracking down the yearbut here is the parts listing. If you look under Gear Casing, you will see what Australian s/n engines are applicable.
                Will keep looking for the year.

                  Re: Mercury serial number to year chart

                  It seems to be either a 7.5 or 9.8 hp motor. Still trying to confirm this.

                  On http://www.marinshopen.se/ it shows decal layout and colors by years. if mine is correct it is showing 1980-1983. Been looking everywhere for info and still no luck. There is a Australian forum im going to try and post on. Maybe some luck will come my way.

                    According to the parts listing I posted, you should be able to confirm whether it is a 7.5 or 9.8 by determining what carb is installed.

                      Ok its a 9.8 then with the Tillotson 1364-7909.

                      Another SN question. They say it is stamped on the block. There is also a round silver disc within the side of the block with another 7 digit number on it. Is this just a part number for that or possibly the SN?
