Is the model number on freeze plug accurate?

Just bought a 1979 evinrude. I was looking for the model number so I could order a water impeller and found that the I'd tag was missing. I typed the model number off the freeze plug in a website and it shows it to be a 1981 model? The title says 1979 also.

I gotta say, I have never heard of a motor being titled, only boat and trailer.

in Oklahoma any outboard larger than 9.9 has to be titled. There are no titles for trailers here.

Sounds like some B.S. in OK and Ohio to me.
