Hey Val can you help me

4 posts in this topic

I have a 5hp mariner 2 stroke that Im trying to determine the age of. There are no tags anywhere on it ,any idea how I can find out? It looks newer ,maybe 80's, Im not sure though. I need to get a new gas line and there isnt an old one to compare the fitting to. Thanks, Dan

Dan,

I wish I could help you, but it's impossible to understand what it is without more details.

Can you send me a picture ? Usually serial # on Mercs/Mariners is on left side of transom mount, or in middle, right around steering tube.

basser...

I have the same motor sitting here and is from the 80's or early 90's (not neccessarily same age).

My motor takes a Yamaha fuel line. I seem to remember having an older mariner that had a mercury fitting. It should be one or the other.

Buy a fuel line at Wal-mart .. if its the wrong one they will let you return/exchange it.

    • jobs and better paying jobs.   that's about it for me.  Sure there are some perks, but I'd give it up in a second if I could come close to matching my income in Grand Rapids. What sort of field are you in?   Anymore it's all indeed, monster, or some sort of online service.  Maybe a recruiter can place you in something, but it might be a sucky job.  I went to a recruiter a few years ago and they could put me a job in a few days, but it was sort of on the edge of my field and the job sucked.  Still, if I was in a pinch, I'd do that in a heartbeat over sacking groceries.   Nobody reads the newspaper and C-list is for sex work and scams.
    • Thanks for the advice, we do know the areas that we like have liked in the past. Cities is a vague reference as most people up here call everywhere down there the cities. We would be looking at the west metro area or nw suburb area.   Job on is the big thing right now ideally my wife could take a few years off to raise our boys as typically the "cities" pay is more than up here.. I have been looking but what is the best way? Indeed? Newspaper? Clist?   We we are a good distance in a way but we are close to our families. When we get company we get them for 3 solid days. Also once we had our twins it was more so they could see there cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents more often than 1-2 times a year.
    • The gdp is right around 18 Trillion Dollars.   Ten years of that, including even a little nominal growth is north of $200 Trillion.   So you are talking about 4.5% over ten years.     And that is assuming that these economists are able to forecast accurately.   We had other economists telling us about the "multiplier" where a dollar of government spending increased GDP by way more than a dollar.     I didn't believe them either.   
    • I put a few miles on this weekend as well. Out on the lake and back a few times. But, I was about a mile out!
