My son and I just bought an old 74 glastron boat and are going to fix it up for fishing . I know nothing about outboard motors and need to buy a manual for the one on the boat but the serial number plate is blank. the numbers are worn off. It is not a metal plate with rivets, or even metal with the numbers stamped on. It's just smooth and blank.It's a 100 hp evinrude commercial, or so the cover says . I checked the freeze out plug for numbers but that's blank too. Even the starter has no label or numbers on it. I am attaching some photo's in the hope some one can ID this. I appreciate any and help in this matter......................seems the photo's will ot load on this site. If anyone is interested i can e-mail the photo's directly to you.

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.
