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?

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.

    • I tried to purchase the screws yetti uses from Fastenal who is their vendor for the screws. They are only sold in large reels designed for a self loading screwgun. I finally called Casey at Glacial lake docks where I purchased my yetti and he sent me out the amount I needed. They work great to add additional fir strips. The plastic used to tie them together comes right off as you screw them in. Hope that helps. 
    • Sorry...was wrong on the specs.   Manufacturer is Core Ice.  It was 1450# for a 12' and 1250# for a 8'.  
    • I believe you want to use a zinc coated or galvanized steel according to the charts.  I'm sure someone will come along to correct me
    • In the back room there is a company that is using bonded foam panels (similar to garage door panels, but really clean looking), and had weights of 1250# for a 12' and 1450# for a 16'.  Aluminum trailer frames that could convert to a skid frame.  Can't recall the name.  I'm sure they were spendy, but I can see a concept like that going somewhere for the hardcore fishing crowd.   Yetti, Firebrand, Big Bite, and Glacier all had really nice display models.      Lots of campers (disguised as fish houses) out there at prices that make me want to jump into the business.  I was in two different manufacturers houses with prices well over $30k that had wire nuts for connections.  That is going to be a fun adventure for someone 2-3 years down the road when they find out their manufacturer saved $15 on their wiring.           
    • Thank you for all the help!  Ended up going with the Marcum VS485C.  After some research, there were a few other Marcums that were on the list (825 & 625), the Aqua Vu HD, and the Pan Cam.  The mini cams from all manufactures weren't what I was looking for, but they are cool and do have their place.     After seeing everything in person, I think the Aqua Vu HD had the best camera/screen.  The Marcums were a little bit behind, but the 825, 625, 485, and Pan Cam had similar real life clarity.  The 485 won out because of the $300 price point vs the others at $450-700, and was almost identical for resolution, other than the HD.
      I honestly think these cameras are all about 5+ years behind in technology in comparison to the broader camera/tv screen market.  Running off a 7-9ah battery is probably one of the limiting factors.  Another may be the cold.  The main reason (IMO) is that the manufacturers are hoping they can incrementally rape us by trickling out technology each year, similar to the computer manufacturers of the 90s/early 2000's.  For the price of a middle of the road underwater camera, I can buy a Chinese made 50" TV (these all have Chinese made 5-8" screens) and a GoPro or Sony Action Cam (which is 10x's the picture quality).
