Can Not Identify Year and Model of Outboard Motor

Looking for help identifying the year and model of the outboard motor I have. It is a small tiller motor, guy I got it from said it was a 15 horse. The plate on the engine bracket was painted over and cannot be read. The number on the silver disc in the engine head reads:

G3618359

Re: Can Not Identify Year and Model of Outboard Motor

Post this question again next week after the holidays when the factory opens up. Then we can check on the serial number for you.

If the motor cover decals are original take some pictures of it and of the engine powerhead and gearcase. From those we may be able to narrow down what you have.

The factory recommends that a properly trained technician service your Johnson or Evinrude outboard motor. Should you elect to perform repairs yourself, use caution, common sense, and observe safety procedures in the vicinity of flammable liquids, around moving parts, near high-temperature components, and working with electrical or ignition systems.

The information offered here is only general in nature and should not be construed as complete factory approved procedures, techniques, or specifications. Always use the proper service manual for your motor, up-to-date service literature, the correct tools, and have an understanding of how to proceed with troubleshooting and repair methods. If you are unsure or uncomfortable with a procedure, a situation, or a technique, enlist the services of a factory trained technician.

You may even try carefully using some paint remover on the serial number tag if it is a metal one and that would show the model number.
