Re: i.d. serial number without id plate

Thank you for the help, 1986 gives me a good place to start.  There are many things wrong with this engine that I hope to fix up over the winter.  It starts and runs well enough, but it could be better.

The nice thing about your 90 is that it has been around for a lot of years with very few changes so there is a large number of junked engines around for anything that is not available anymore.  Maintenance items are readily available.

Re: i.d. serial number without id plate

Hopefullly someone can help me on this one.   I'm in Mexico and have an old Boston Whaler with an Evinrude.  The tag has obviously fallen off.  It's a 65hp commercial model but I need the model #. Serial number on freeze plug is G3762954. Any help with the model number?  I can upload photos when I get a better internet connection.  Thanks in advance!
