Old Johnson Identification

Hi

 

I am looking at buying a used boat that had a 150 Johnson Fast Strike on it. However, the guy blew that powerhead and apparently a 175 USED powerhead was put on as a replacement. The guy has no idea on the year of the powerhead. So if anyone could tell the year from these pictures, that would be great. I tried looking for more serial numbers but couldn't find any with letters at the end.

The engine block is a 1991 thru early production 1993 with the non-adjustable carbs.

 

What numbers are stamped on the round silver disc on the back of the engine?

Re: Old Johnson Identification

Are you sure that is the correct number of digits?

On the quarter sized silver plate below the OIS 2000 on the back? Yes I am sure

Hi dbenner,
That number sequence contains too many digits for a proper serial number but if the first character is actually the letter " G " with 3055646 after it, then the powerhead is from a 1992 175 HP Johnson outboard.
Could you provide a well focused close up of the silver plate numbers?

Re: Old Johnson Identification

I only had the pictures I took of the block when I went and looked at it, but after zooming in again, it does look like the first character is a G not a 3. The lighting just made it look like a 3. Good knowledge. Thanks!
