Identify my motor

Help!  I recently bought a motor but don't think it is what I was told it was.  I cannot find a model number anywhere.  The only number I found is on a freeze plug looking thing and it is:  J0004902100999S          Can anyone help me?  It is supposed to be a 1986 Evinrude 115hp.  It has the engine cover that matches that but need the model to buy some parts..

Re: Identify my motor

can you doble check and take a clear picture of the numbers? There are too many digits.

We need clear in-focus pictures of the motor cover decals plus top, both sides, and back of the powerhead and a side view of the whole engine to narrow down what you have.

Re: Identify my motor

never mind but thanks for your helpfulness. I contacted BRP and found out what it is.  A 1979 Evinrude, 100hp

Re: Identify my motor

A '79 100 hp was my suspicion but wanted to see the photos first to be sure. The V4 engines from 1978 on were pretty standard for routine service parts for many years. A knowledgeable parts person should be able to help out if there is any confusion.
