1278123_10151619483375756_318502603_o.jpgSame Question... Plate missing from motor. Johnson Seahorse 6, think it is 1973 but parts sites show 4 models listed from that year. Looking for the exact model number. I think the SN is C0012691. (Round metal plate off engine block). I need to replace gear shift lever as it broke and want to find the correct replacement. It had been replaced by a previous owner with PN 278026 but this part number is listed for an early 1960s Evinrude model. It is compatible but may as well find the right part if i can.

Never got a reply on this post. Already fixed with some L brackets, bolts, steel weld, and epoxy as the repair quote at a local dealer was more than the motor was worth. Quoted $375, fixed for $35 (CDN). Much stronger than it originally was and have had it out on the water a few times to test with no issues.  Would still like to know what year the motor is in case something ever comes up in the future.

Re: What year is my old Evinrude??

Sorry, somehow I must have missed your original post.

 

The motor cover decals are 1973. Without a model number it is difficult to find out exactly which engine as Canadian serial numbers are not available for lookup.

 

The 6 HP was basically the same motor for years so common tune up parts and stuff should be easily found.

Re: What year is my old Evinrude??

I have this model, too.  My serial number is 5524R-11981.  I tried to upload an image of the motor, but I keep getting a message, "an unexpected error occurred."    Any ideas on where to get an owners manual and/or parts list for this model?
