Help to identify year/model of Evinrude outboard - please

Hi There,

 

I am wondering if someone can please assist?

 

My Evinrude VRO 50 - does not appear to have a id plate anywhere, on the engine mount I found G2500037 stamped, can someone please assist me with the approx year and model of my outboard?

 

I have attached some pictures, I am thinking 80's?

That serial number is for a 1990 40hp model

Any other ways to tell the hp? As our cowling says 50hp and all looks original.

The 40 and 50 are basically the same motor with different carbs and other minor differences. You cannot tell the differcence in the blocks just  by looking. You would have to compare the venturi diameters in the carbs and jet sizes from a 40 and 50 to find out which powerhead you have. Refer to the online parts listing at EVINRUDE PARTS .

 

 

The motor covers are both the same, the only difference is the HP plaque so the cover may not be the original one.

 

 Manuals are avaiable from  www.outboardbooks.com
