Re: i.d. serial number without id plate

[ Edited ]

If there is only one carburetor on the motor, then it is not a 40 hp.  Does the front of the motor look like this one?

Can you post individual pictures of both sides of the powerhead of the powerhead showing the whole width of it, plus straight on shots of the front and back of the powerhead?

The motor is older than 1996

Re: i.d. serial number without id plate

It only has one carburetor, I was wondering about that myself. I did a Google search on the number that is stamped on the outer exhaust cover (326713) and I found a used one for sale that said it fit 1981-1988 20, 25, 28, 30, and 35hp models. That is about all the information I have been able to find. I am assuming it is within that year range more than likely 30-35hp.

ncfowler,

 

It is NOT  a 40hp.

 

Your motor is a 1995 or earlier 20,25,30,or 35 hp. Most common maintenance parts are the same over the years.

Re: i.d. serial number without id plate

Hey guys, I’ve also recently bought a 20hp evinrude outboard engine and I’ve realized that the serial number sticker that should be on the mounting bracket or transom is gone. I located the quarter sized tab on the engine under the cover and found the number - R8529738 does anyone have a clue where I can get this decoded so I can buy the part I need.
If not, does anyone know if most “helix twist grips” for most evinrude models, or are they all the same? I’d appreciate any info if anyone has any! Thanks

Re: i.d. serial number without id plate

Always use your model number to order parts and to look up any service specifications.

 

You would have to look up almost every model and year motor and compare helix part numbers. There are several so they are not all the same over the years.

08529738 = E20CRES = 1990
