Hi,

 

To post pictures, click on HELP on the top right of the page, then IMAGES

 

We need clear pictures of the engine decals on the motor cover, a picture of the whole motor - top to prop, and pictures of the powerhead in focus of each side, back, and front.

Please read the previous post for what pictures we need to begin investigating which engine you have.

Hi I just got this what I was told was a 6hp Evinrude for a extremely cheap price but it has no cowl, plate or numbers anywhere on it that I can see besides 318222 on the port on the side of the block.  I need to find out what year and hopefully what model so I can begin repairs/resto. I can't get the pictures to show properly but here are the links to them.  Any help would be greatly apperiacted

Unfortunately that is not an Evinrude outboard. It looks more like an older Yamaha or Tohatsu brand.

Re: i.d. serial number without id plate

Is there anyway or anything I go do to find out, I literally paid $20 for it and it is in decent shape but i don't even know which plugs to buy or the gap. I plan on tearing it down so could there another spot to check?

You could have a Yamaha dealer look at it
