Re: i.d. serial number without id plate

 

 

LagoonHunter,

 

It appears that your motor is a 1991 model year.

What are the numbers and letters on the silver disk seen in the starboard side photo?

Bill
Thank you again! I really appreciate the help!
I was hoping you could tell me what lead you to the answer about the year of my Evinrude.I'm trying to locate a parts and repair manual to have handy for any future repairs the first one being the water pump!
Again thanks for all your help!

MB,

 

Your engine appears to be one from about 1975. They were all basically the same back then.

 

In fact, the water pump kit # 391391 fits all 5-1/2 and 6hp outboards from 1954 through 1979. The points, condensers and coils are all the same, too.

Re: i.d. serial number without id plate

Thanks Bill,
The motor looks a little rough but appears to have done little to no salt water work. Gearbox needs a seal kit but other then that is in excellent condition. I removed the flywheel and reset the points and the timing gear looks brand new.
I cleaned up the carb and gave it new plugs and she started after a few attempts, doesn't idle but yet but at least I can now look into some parts to get her all running again.
Is going to be my sons first motor on his first boat.

Cheers Bill for the help

Re: i.d. serial number without id plate

Hello Bill,

 

Could you please help me identify a Johnson 15 hp outboard engine? The only thing I could find on it was this: J2428949. This was on what I believe to be the "freeze plug".

 

Your help would be much appreciated!

 

Best Regards

Tamás

MB,

 

We are always glad to help.

 

It is very satisfying to know that "older iron" is still kept operational and being cared for by those who appreciate outboards.
