My dad and I found a great deal on a 21' Mako. We initially thought the engine was a 225 FICHT. Even with the FICHT it was too good of a deal to pass up. Once we pulled the cowl we find no EMM, no injectors, just sweet, sweet carbs. The only numbers I can find are E225VXEE. This is stamped into the T&T assembly. I don't see any way to attach pictures. I will try to post pictures then put up links to the photos.
E225VXEE is not a valid model number but it is close plus someone stamped it there. If it is mostly correct the motor is probably a 1993 through 1999 225 carbureted model even though it starts with an E but there were no carbureted V6s that year for Evinrude. Most maintenance and commonly replaced parts are pretty much the same for the '93 through 2000 V6 engines so you should not have problems with repairs.
The silver disc on the back of the powerhead may have numbers stamped on it. Post them here, it may take a week or so, but we may be able to identify the motor exactly from that.

The factory recommends that a properly trained technician service your Johnson or Evinrude outboard motor. Should you elect to perform repairs yourself, use caution, common sense, and observe safety procedures in the vicinity of flammable liquids, around moving parts, near high-temperature components, and working with electrical or ignition systems.
The information offered here is only general in nature and should not be construed as complete factory approved procedures, techniques, or specifications. Always use the proper service manual for your motor, up-to-date service literature, the correct tools, and have an understanding of how to proceed with troubleshooting and repair methods. If you are unsure or uncomfortable with a procedure, a situation, or a technique, enlist the services of a factory trained technician.
