Arrow How to check engine serialnumbers ?

Searched the forum, didn't find all the answers.

Mercury, Mercruiser or Mariner :
see http://www.marinepower.com click the 'check registration button'

Evinrude or Johnson :
I don't know...


Can you guys help me with this ?
I need a check on a 225hp VRO Johnson serialnr "J 5856624"

Thx!

The engine year will be found in the model number, not the serial number. Hope this helps.

Yeah! Thanks Ben
Usefull site ! I checked my own Evinrude modelnumber, and it seems all correct.

However, I have only the serialnumber of the Johnson engine. Can I find (on-line) the corresponding modelnumber, general specs of this engine ? I guess I could make some phonecalls to the Johnson/Evinrude/Bombardier people, but let's explore the possibilities of the all-knowing internet, shall we ?

Any help is welcome. Probably also for other people here on boatmad, who would like to do an engine check...

Toffy, the engine looks to be from about 1985 to 90. Another helpful website http://epc.brp.com/DEFAULT.ASPX?BRAN...ALERLOCATOR=NO

As for the specs, it is probably the same as my 1988 Evinrude 225s
