  • Will 1974 evinrude 40 hp power head fit 1973 evinrude 40 hp?

    I've got a 1973 Evinrude 40 hp norseman. I have found a 1974 model 40 hp power head on ebay. Would I be able to use the 1974 model power head on the 73 model? Will all of my components like the starter and carburetor work on it? Thanks

    Go to shop.evinrude.com, look up the motors and compare part numbers.

          There were some changes made in the last few years of the 40 HP models.--------------Best to check things like the crankshaft / driveshaft splines.-----------Crank is a different # ----Driveshaft is a different # also the impeller is a different # .-----Which may indicate a different driveshaft diameter.
