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

 

 

It is only for engine block identification. Sometimes it is the serial number of the original engine, it could also be a part number for a replacement block.

Someone changed the outside cover or decals. Your serial number  04869869 is a model  E90FPLSSH  - 2000  90 HP FICHT engine.

According to Evinrude records G4869869 is 90 HP FICHT.  It would not be the first time someone swapped serial number discs, or was this from the tag on the swivel bracket which could mean a different powerhead intalled.

 

You may want to doulbe check the number to be sure.

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

Hey Bill, 

Can you cross-reference this one for me from a Johnson?  Model tag is faded out, all I could find was serial number on aluminum plate attached to block:  G4102049

I am suspecting around 1995, it is a 90hp 2-stroke

thanks!
