    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.

    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?
