Need help with Year

Bought a 1976 Pices. It has an outboard that I am pretty sure has a Johnson/Evinrude 140 Looper on it. Just cant find the year / serial. Trying to register and get running, but need the serial so that I can get the right parts.

 

Welch plug number is G2267499. All other markings have been painted over multiple times by multiple previous owners.

 

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

***************

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.
