Locating serial numbers

Hi All,

 

I have an evinrude 150 etec motor, but I suspect that a dealer has switch motors on me and that he has also switched the sticker that has the serial number and model number. Are there other locations or other ways I can find the serial number and model number of the motor?

 

According to my paperwork the serial number of the motor of my boat is 05474533 and the model number c150FLH. When i checked with the Evinrude office the serial number 05474533 is referring to an evinrude etec 150 HP. However i noticed that an evinrude etec 150 HO is currently installed on my boat. When I asked the dealer about this he sent me a picture of the sticker with with the above serial numbers and model number that is attached to the evinrude etec 150 HO motor. So i need to find a way to proof to the dealer that the motors and the stickers have been switched.

 

Thanks!

#05474533 is an EVINRUDE  C150FLHAA  - a 150 HO model 

 

Defacing or trying to remove a serial number tag results in the numbers vanishing and the word VOID appearing multiple times in their place.

Re: Locating serial numbers

Thank you BluewaterBill!

When I contacted the Evinrude office they told me that serial number 05474533 is refering to an evinrude etec 150 HP. So now I am really confuse. Is there a website where i can check this myself.

Thanks!

Base on the following serial number and model number can the year of the motor be determined:

Re: Locating serial numbers

  

There are no yearly designations in the outboard motor industry, everything is determined by the model number.

 

A tag on the motor does show the manufacturing date.

 

Your motor is a 150 HP Evinrude. There are 2 models of the 150, a regular version and a higher output version as signified by the letter H in the model number.

Re: Locating serial numbers

I bought 2 supposedly etec 200 hp but they have no tags/Sticker on them. They are rebuilt and are beautiful inside and out. Is there an alternative location for a serial # for these outboards.I bought them in Florida where they don't register them but I live in Texas and have to register them.

Look on the engine blocks for about a 1" diameter aluminum disc that resembles a core plug. There should be a serial number stamped on it.  

If the disc isn't there and there is no sticker on the engine, then you may be out of luck.

Re: Locating serial numbers

Additionally an engine report can be generated from the EMM memory using Evinrude diagnostic software that will give the engine model # and serial #, unless the EMM has been swapped from another engine.
