1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0

The odd thing is your model number doens't look quite right... normally it'd be J90, and so on, with the first letter indicating the brand johnson vs evinrude) and the next two numbers indicating the hp.

Looks like a 03?

The code above is correct. Here's an example:

Typically, on the motor you'll see: J6RLCOB Use the letters in the fifth and sixth places. In other words, the C and O. From the code in the previous entry, the year of the motor would be '85. The C represents an 8 and the O represents a 5. There is a cut-off date when they no longer used the code, but I don't know that year.

I typed in the wrong model number it should have read. J90TLAEM, the code introduces wont work for this model number. Any suggestions. the serial number is R- 08236801.

I thought wrote it down correct I will check again. My uncle passed away recently and has a boat motor and trailer and I would like to buy it from my aunt. I know the trailer is a 19 90 model, is there away to tell what year the boat is?

Found a 1989 model that matches.

Ah.. I did a little more researching and found this:

The letter "A" was a designation for an alternate color scheme (it was used during the late 80's and early 90's) and this info is not well known. I believe that the 90 hp is a 1989 model.

Thank you marine man for your research. I found I have another problem maybe someone could help. The boat is a 1990 pro-v 1700. It was last registered in Ill. My uncle who just passed away bought it from a guy in Ill. He has also passed away, but I dont know his name, my aunt cant find the title and doesnt know if my uncle even had it. How can I get a title for this boat in MN.
