How To Determine The Age Of A Evinrude Or Johnson Outboard
Posted 09 May 2007 - 03:20 PM
You get the model number and look at the 3rd and 2nd last letters. Now using the following word where a letter corresponds to a number:
For example:- BE70ELEUM, the 3rd last letter is E which is the 9th letter in the word introduces. The second last letter is U which is the 7th letter, therefore the engine is a 1997 model 70HP Evinrude.
Another:-J150PLSNF, the 3rd last letter is S, which is 0. The second last letter is N which relates to 2, so the engine is a 2002 model 150HP Johnson.
One more:-J25ELCOC, the 3rd last letter is C, which is the 8th letter. The second last letter is O whihc is the 5th letter in the word INTRODUCES. Therefore this engine is a 1985 model 25HP Johnson.
The HP of the engine is also the numbers and it will either have an E for Evinrude or J for Johnson before the HP rating.
I hope you can understand it, if not and you would like to know the year model of your outboard please PM me your model number and I can tell you.

It allows you to look up quite a few makes to find the year of mfg etc.
I think its in sweden, but you can work it out pretty easily, if not you could probably have Google translate it.
