Customer Question

I purchased a pontoon boat that has a 1987 MARINER OILINJECT 40 HP MOTOR. When I looked for the oil reservoir I could not find it. Dose it have one or do you just mix the oil in the gas (40-1).

Hello Russ, My name is***** will assist you.

Could I get the serial number of the engine?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I guess this will just have to wait. The boat is several miles away and I am waiting for another call. Check with you later, Russ.

Thanks,

The oil tank is supposed to be sitting in front of the carb. If it is not there you will need to mix the fuel and oil at 50:1. This is a diagram of it.
