Help Identifying Outboard

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.

By the way, Long time lurker. First time poster. This is my second rude. The first is an '86 40hp. I've had good luck with them so far. We'll see how it goes with this one.

Re: Help Identifying Outboard

So the links posted should work now. Hopefully someone can give me some info or point me in the right direction on truly Identifying the powerhead

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.

Re: Help Identifying Outboard

Thanks bill. I looked at the evinrude model number reference manual and couldn't find that model number either. There's some stickers around the carb that are dated 1997. The disk does have a number although it's not a model number. May be the SN. I'll post the number as soon as I make it back home. My 1986 40hp has the engine model number stamped there. I'm thinking the t&t and cowl are donors from a blown 99 FICHT
