Re: Name plate missing where else is engine serial number on the 152 stroke Evinrude possibly 1998

Good morning Bill, I posted it above but I think it got lost in other post. Never the less I have what I’m thinking is a 18hp but not completely sure as the white powerhead has been put in a johnson housing with Evinrude mount. Power head plug is J2482345

For some reason the number is not coming up.

 

Can you send clear pictures of the plug, and all sides of the powerhead including the carbureto and fuel pump?  If the decals are in good shape, a picture of a side and back of the motor cover could help also.

The nice thing about the 18-20 hp powerheads are that they use mostly the same maintenance items as very little was changed over the years.

Wundy107,

 

It seems your powerhead is from 1964 thru 1967 from the pictures of the fuel pump and the carb.

HI Bill Could you assit me with this also. The motor is believed to be a 1998 25hp Evinrude. No name plate or decals. Number on the plug is G3090311. If you could let me know the Make, Model, Year, HP... That would be greatly appreciated.

The nice thing about this site is that you do not have to post the same question more than once.

 

Monitor your other question about serial numbers as we will post the answer there.
