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.

  • Year of Mariner 4hp?

    I have a 2 stroke Mariner 4M. Serial no. 6E0 6 08006. Made in Japan.
    I'm guessing it's about 20 yrs old, but can anyone tell me the exact year? I've looked on www.marinshopen.se/index.htm but it doesn't seem to be listed. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.

    Your problem is as simple as the number you are giving the 6EO is the model designation of th 4HP Japanese built Mariners but they all had 6 digits serial numbers starting with 3EO-001011 in 1980 and running through 6EO-335370 starting number in 1990, in 1991 the starting number was A874067 so you have a problem with you serial number.

      So if my 4 starts with 6EO it's pre '91? That would make the folks i bought it from um, less then truthful! They said they bought in '96 or '97, new. Hmmmm.

        The last 6EO was manufactured in 91 the new purchase date could be any time after that. Thats what Jap manufacturing is all about.

          After prompting by Laddies, I realise I've posted the wrong serial no.
          It should've read: 6E0 S 080066.
          According to the service manager at E.P. Barrus Ltd of Oxfordshire, U.K. (main importer of Mariner in the U.K.) the year is 1981 and the OEM part number of the workshop manual for this model is 90-96963.
          Thanks Laddies for your help.
