Evinrude. sticker with model/ serial # not legible.

[ Edited ]

Hello,

 

I am hopeing someone can help me.  I am new to this board  and I just purchased an older boat from someone who was helping their friend sell it and owner had no idea what model the engine is.  The cover on the engine I believe is a replacement cover as I can not find any info on it on the internet.  The model/serial number sticker is painted over and I tried to remove the paint with no avail.  The motor cover says its an Evinrude super 80,  I think by some similar  pictures I've seen the internet it is either an 90 or 115hp.  I found the freeze plug number and it is G2997500 and also another group of numbers stamped on the block 186697 03FQ 1 and another number stamped under these numbers 2521 91. 

 

 Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Can you post images of the motor from each side and of the motor cover decals?

 

Please double check the numbers on the silver plug.

 

The last 80 hp was from 1967

The engine you have appears to be a 1995 or earlier 88 HP Johnson with an Evinrude motor cover where someone changed the decal. The 88 was the economy version of a 90 HP model. It had no VRP pump for auto-mixing of fuel and oil, no voltage regulator, a smaller charging system, and came without a power trim unit but one was an optional accessory.  Parts are easily obtainable and very common. I will check the numbers on that disk next week even though they are not the normal 7 digit serial number.
