Old men just want to go fishing Retired widower seeks retired widow with boat and motor, Please send pictures of boat and motor. I'll email Porthcawl a guess of 1985 with a pic- Cheers! Re: Mariner serial number chart I checked on this chart, My serial number does not really jive, Mine is 5316614, It's not really on the list, According to this chart it comes up to an early 80's 175hp, Unless someone has changed the decals this is not correct, It says 150 V6 all over it, Now I'm really confused, If I buy this how will i ever find the correct parts for it? If the model year doesn't appear on yours, the serial number, also located on this plate, is the key. Re: Mercury serial number to year chart Thank you for the response,I have been looking all over for that chart. I'll email Porthcawl a guess of 1985 with a pic- Cheers! There is no way to find the model year of motors with significantly higher serial numbers than listed in these guides. Last edited by VicS; 08-06-12 at 10:03. These motors do not have any consistent year-to-serial scheme.
Been looking everywhere for info and still no luck. Thanks Dzz Re: Mercury serial number to year chart It seems to be either a 7. All pricing is for a quantity of 1 only. NickNow given all the relevant details it looks as though it is a 1990 one. I am sure the good inhabitants of Porthcawl will appreciate the picture though. Please review our before you place an order. First, locate the horsepower of your outboard on the chart, then look down the list of serial number ranges.
N o clue what's wrong! Here is another site , but I could not find the number here either. If it begins 6A1- its a 1990 Japanese one rebadged Yamaha?? When you find the serial number range that matches your engine, you can look across the chart to find your engine's model year. Finding the model year of your Mercury outboard may be as simple as looking at its title if your state requires your Merc to carry its own, separate title. For the Yamaha outboard parts library. Mercury ceased publishing this information after the 1996 model year. Mercury Marine is a division of the Brunswick Corporation, which primarily manufactures engines for small boats.
I cant read the Australian site Andrew posted at the time and cant seem to find anything else online that will help me. You will be notified beforehand if this is the case. The serial number is the top number on the plate. W e only do warranty work. Please have your model and serial number handy before using this facility.
Maybe some luck will come my way. I wish it was possible for us to give you the exact location for this plug however it varies from motor to motor. The Mercury Marine serial number 0B308972 refers to a 60 horsepower, three-cylinder outboard motor manufactured in 1988. On it shows decal layout and colors by years. And if its on that website please translate the information that given for that serial. Select your outboard's horsepower and click on the link to the appropriate chart. Many newer Mercury outboards have the model year stated prominently on this sticker.
There is a Australian forum im going to try and post on. The company was founded in 1939 by Carl Kiekhaefer in Cedarburg, Wisconsin, and it has grown to be the world's leading builder of marine propulsion systems. The number directly beneath this is the year it was manufactured. The motor is a new old stock item, not yet run in fresh water if I believe the owner, and I think I do, it looks and runs like new. Can you direct me to an alternate location for the serial on this powerhead? The dealer is the gold standard for information about your Mercury outboard and, using Mercury's proprietary resources, can provide you with the outboard's model year. Parts ordered from this website may or may not be in dealer stock at the time of order.

Compare the serial number on your outboard to the numbers on the chart and find the two serial numbers between which your serial number lies. The year your outboard was manufactured will be the year displayed with the lower of the two numbers. If not, locate the product identification plate on the engine mounting bracket.
