Help Tip: If you have a question that has not been answered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new thread of your own. By starting your own thread, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum members.

Below are some additional forum policies in hopes of all iboats members will follow, Thank you.

1. Please do not reply to old topics or hijack existing topics. Old topics of a technical nature are like a library book, Please do not write in them.

2. Old topics should be considered archives and used for reference only. Please do not reply to them.

3. Do not take over someone elseís topic (aka hijack) with your own question, even if it is similar. If you have a question that has not been covered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new topic of your own.

4. If you have a question for the original poster (OP) and the topic is over 30 days old, send the OP a PM, he may not even visit the forums any longer, or may not notice your question in the old topic.

5. By starting your own topic, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum helpers that may not even notice your question when itís posted at the end of someone elseís topic. And those answers will be specific to your particular issue.

6. Please do not post to topics that have been inactive for more than 3 months unless you are the original poster. We have very active forums and any topic that remains inactive for that long should be considered "dead". It is especially confusing when there is an entirely new question posted to an old topic.

7. Posting at the end of any topic is considered to be hijacking the original posters topic which in turn subjects the topic to be closed if it continues to happen thus not making it fair to the original poster in the future had for some reason he/she needed to return for additional information or provide an update of the problem solved which is always welcomed within a reasonable amount of time frame.

8. Please note that you should see a red banner pop up near the bottom of each inactive topic asking you not to reply to old topics. The Red banner will read: Please note this topic has been inactive for 90 days. For the best results, please start a new topic.

Thank you all in advance for doing your part in helping iboats run a smooth ship.

        model number is better, but a dealer should be able to take the Serial number and give you more having that ...........

        model number should be right above the serial number as well..............
        It is better to have it and not need it, then need it and not have it

        why is there never time to do the job right, but always time to do it over again?

        "Whenever I do something really dumb (at the boat ramp), a very large audience always seems to appear from out of nowhere"

        You cant fix stupid, but you can numb it with a 2 x 4.

        All the romance of fishing exists in the mind of the angler and is in no way shared by the fish.

          mrsalmon, have a good look around the powerhead, it should have a nickel sized aluminum plug, which should have the model number and serial number stamped on it.

                    Re: how to tell what year my evinrude motor is

                    you will need a harmonic balancer puller to remove the flywheel, and a set of feeler guages to set the points. other than that your basic tools should do the job. dont be afraid to ask questions, and read the top secret file at the beginning of this forum!! welcome to iboats.

                        no such thing as a stupid question! if your not sure, asking is better than guessing. there is a wealth of knowledge in this forum. ( also have a gander at *****************, the site will show you all the exploded views of your model, and part numbers etc etc)

                          I have recently been given a Evinrude Fisherman 6HP outboard. I am trying to find out the year of manufacture, but only have the serial No C0062130 (the last digit may be a D - it is hard to tell). Can you please help?

                            I have sent this message out earlier, but I note that you seem to have answers on serial Numbers - I have recently been given a Evinrude Fisherman 6HP outboard. I am trying to find out the year of manufacture, but only have the serial No C0062130 (the last digit may be a D - it is hard to tell). Can you please help?
