I have a 1990 Evinrude 8hp that I want to convert to all remote control. I've spent some time searching the web, but what I've found doesn't really pertain to my particular model. There is no mount to attach the gear selector cable, the throttle cable routes around and behind the engine and there is nowhere to attach a bracket to accept any kind os steering cable setup. If anyone can point me in the right direction I would greatly appreciate it. Attached are pics of the engine.
This is what's on the label on the midsection:
Model: E8RLESR
Ser: B 02427710
OUTBOARD MARINE CORPORATION
BELGIUM

Any chance you could share that part#? I've Googled for hours the model # on my engine and I cant find anything that will convert the tiller throttle to remote control. I see all kinds of kits the will hook up to a Evinrude where the throttle assemble is down on the side of the engine, but nothing to adapt when the throttle cable runs under the front and around to the back top of the engine. Same goes for the remote steering kit.......there is nowhere on the factory housing to bolt on an adapter to hook up to a tilt tube steering assembly. Maybe I'm not searching for the correct terms, although with everything that I've researched I believe I have the terminology correct
