    Default Mariner 4hp, model 4ML, 6EO L, Serial # 331331

    Hi guys! First time on the thread. Bought a 1963 Elgin 12' yesterday, with a 4hp Mariner motor. Motor needs a prop. Can someone recommend a prop and where I might be able to find one? Also, is this a reliable motor? It started, but I did not run it for any period of time.What should I have done to it from a maintenance and tune up point of view before I use it in the spring? One last question, I could only find a 4MA L on line when looking up serial numbers. What year and kind of motor do I have.....does the L mean long shaft? Thanks, I appreciate your help....I'm new to all of this.

    Comes up as:

    4A ML 6E0-330971 - 6E0-332299 1987 Manual start, Long shaft

    From here:

    http://www.marinshopen.se/Motorer/Om...8/Default.aspx

    Parts listing:

    http://www.crowleymarine.com/mercury-outboard/696.cfm

    You will see 48-8M0057167 under the Prop Chart as being the original delivery prop.

    I do not have any experience with this one, so I will leave the rest for others.

    Thanks for the info! One other question.....my transom only measures 15" top to bottom. Based on what I've read, I really should be using a short shaft motor. Will this long shaft be a problem when I run the boat, i.e. goofy wake, poor handling?

    Thanks!
