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 threads or hijack existing threads. Old threads of a technical nature are like a library book, Please do not write in them.

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

3. Do not take over someone elseís thread (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 thread of your own.

4. If you have a question for the original poster (OP) and the thread 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 thread.

5. By starting your own thread, 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 thread. And those answers will be specific to your particular issue.

6. Please do not post to threads that have been inactive for more than 3 months unless you are the original poster. We have very active forums and any thread 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 thread.

7. Posting at the end of any thread is considered to be hijacking the original posters thread which in turn subjects the thread 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 thread asking you not to reply to old threads. The Red banner will read: Please note this thread has been inactive for 90 days. For the best results, please start a new thread.

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

  • Mercury 115 Serial Number

    I have a Mercury 115 6 cylinder motor on my Checkmate. I have look at several website and tried to locate a serial number on the motor. Their is no "tag or plate" with anything resembeling a serial number. By cross checking different parts, fuel pump, carberators etc. I have been able to zero in on mid to late 80's. Is their any other way of accurately identifing my motor? Have a bad stator it seems but replacement selection varies according to the year. It has an open circuit on the blue wire.

      Thanks for the quick response. Their are two parts that share that "bracket designation" one being the Swivel Bracket that rotates on a pin for the tilt up and down and the Transom Mounting Bracket that obviously mounts to the transom. This may seem dumb but I have scoured these two parts with no luck. Which of these brackets has the Serial number and where specifically on the bracket? Again I have looked carefully but I don't see it. Thanks

        There might be a part number on the crankcase, starboard side. You can look it up at the crowleymarine.com website.
