After the weekend, we can investigate for you. It looks more like a part number for a replacement powerhead.

Tell me the size and possible year of the motor, or post some pictures of the motor cover decals and shots of the powerhead.  Look on the transom brackets or swivel bracket for the serial and model number plate or sticker.

I found a sticker that had been painted over, I was able to hold a flashlight behind the sticker and get this G number

The number I want off the sticker is unreadable.

G7740806

 

 

The motor is a Evinrude V4 120 HP

Not sure of the year, possibly 90's or late 80's?

After holding the light just right on this sticker, I think this is going to be a Johnson 140. I think someone stuck a cowling from a evinrude 120 on it.

I was about to get J140

Well, after finding a brighter light. Its a 1988 Johnson 140 With Electric Tilt / trim with electric start.

 

 

Smiley Happy I will hunt for a Johnson Forum to ask anything further.

Bill,

If you can identity another motor I’d highly appreciate it.

The paint and motor cover decals are for a 1992 thru 1994 140 hp.  How many of those do you have? Your last serial number query was for a 1992 140 hp Johnson,

 

The one in your pictures is either a 1992 or an early production 1993 as there are no idle mixture scew access holes in the air silencer.
