the engine will have a 3 digit prefix ie: 110,108 etc

this number will be the beginning of the part number written on most components. what kind of engine is it? 4,6 or 8? up to a certain point most merc engines had adjustable rockers so before u spend a heap of money on it, it couldbe something simple.

a pic of the engine with the air cleaner removed would be perfect.
