  • Paint Question for 1979 70HP Evenrude

    Hello everyone,
    I am new to this forum and really enjoy reading all of the posts of everyone sharing their experience.

    I am trying to locate some touch up paint for the outboard motor that I am repairing. The outboard is a 1979 70HP Evenrude (70973R). I am replacing the swivel bracket on the motor because of a backing mishap. The new bracket that I just received in the mail is a good replacement minus the color. It is cast aluminum and the color is kind of a green color. My 70 HP is factory painted silver. This color is not as common as the colors that are listed for that year. I would like to match the new bracket to this silver however I am not finding anyone who sells it.

    I have found all of the more common colors for that year just not the silver. From the research that I have done so far the silver was used on motors from 1974 - 82. I located the original Evenrude paint code numbers and information which I listed below.
    ES # 1612
    Paint -Silver
    Spray 172793
    One Quart Can 279786

    I am in the process of trying to get everything put together so once I start my project I wont be waiting on parts that need to be special ordered.

    Thank you in advance for the help.

          Those are the factory part numbers.-------They may not be available.-----Perhaps your local paint shop can mix them using the ES code.

                  Thanks everyone for the posts. I will order the silver that Fazbullet listed the part # for and see how close it is to the original color. It doesn't have to be a perfect match it just needs to hold up to being in the water.

                    Check those part # against the description before ordering.------Paint from ----nymarine----Is another option.
