Re: i.d. serial number without id plate

I have an Evinrude that I'd love to figure out a model number also haven't had any luck with local guys. The power head was replaced but this is what that plug had on it. Any help is appreciated since I need to try to get a serial number or model number for insurance purposes.

Re: i.d. serial number without id plate

That is not a serial number on the silver disk, but a part number for a replacement long-block used on the 1994 and 1995 engines like yours.

 

Your intake manifold style is from a mid-year production 1994 V or S model or a 1995. Both motors were very similar.

 

I am assuming that the connector for the boat to the motor wiring harness is a large red cannon plug. The last year that was used was 1995.

Your motor cover decals were used in '94 and later motors.  Is there a red round connector where the boat wiring harness connects to the engine harness? If so, yours is a '95.  If there is no red connector but 2 rectangular and one triangular connector, then it is a '96 or later. Look behind the plastic cover by the red wire and fuse in picture #3

Red it is, meaning it's a 95. Thank you ever so much..

Re: i.d. serial number without id plate

Hi, I was hoping someone could help me identify the year or model number for my Evinrude 40HP. Thank you in advance for any assistance, and if there's any additional information I can add please let me know.20180227_145850.jpg20180227_145900.jpg3.jpg4 (2).jpg5.jpg

The motor cover does look funny sitting on the motor backwards.

 

Coloring and decals like that were used from 1989 through 1991. Look for a 1" round silver disk with numbers on it attached to the engine block. That may help us narrow down the  year.

Ha! I was hoping no one would notice I put it on backwards for the side view photos. I believe this is the stamped part you're referring to. Thanks for the assistance so far, I greatly appreciate it.20180228_064547.jpg
