Evinrude Motor

6 posts in this topic

I am buying a boat for this summer and it has a 10 HP Evinrude motor on it. I would like to know what year the motor is from but when I look for it on NADA I cannot find the model number. The model number of the motor is SE10RPL0. Does anyone know when the motor was made or know where I can look for it at on the internet.

I don't know for sure which year, but I think it's prior 1980, since that year OMC started using the word INTRODUCES as template for serial numer year.

You take 2 letters before last, and count years with word above.

Example, motor serial last 3 letters is CEA,
you take the EC and count from 1981 with INTRODUCES, which returns 89 ( C=8 and E=9 )

Since your serial # doesn match any, it will be prior 1980

Thanks for the reply. I do not have the serial number just the model number. I will see if I can get the serial number sometime and look at it.

Thanks

Here is the serial number from the motor.

G 03306861

Can anyone help me figure out what year this motor was made or does anyone know where to look to find out what year it is.

I found a Johnson 9 1/2 horse at my local town dump (it's amazing what people will throw away) and I went to a local OMC dealer/repair shop for parts. The lady there took the model and serial number and looked it up in a book. It wound up being a 1964. They still have most of the parts for it! I got it running great but I have to replace the water pump. Try calling any OMC dealer and they should be able to tell you.
Good Luck...

I called Evinrude today and here is what they said about my new boat motor.

Motor is a 1992 and it is a commercial model which he said means it has a heavy duty gear box.

I think I found a great deal on this boat, motor, and trailer. The boat is a 1981 16' Blue Fin with the 10hp Evinrude motor. It has a trolling motr and a newer Karavan trailer.

    • You might be able to figure things out this week.  How big is your sump basket?  Is the  pump kicking in now?  Sit there for 15 minutes and count the number of times it cycles.  That should give you a decent idea on how much water is coming in.  Then figure out about how high the water has to go before it flows by gravity.  The spec for the pump will say something like that it can pump 2,000 gph at 10 feet of lift.  (the gph drops dramatically the higher it has to pump the water).  The answer to your specifics will give you an idea of how big of a pump you need.  If you match the size of the pump as close as possible to the amount of water your will face you can maximize the amount of time the battery backup will last.   Faced with this problem I took a standard boat sump pump and modified it so I could hook up a garden hose.  The I took an old shop extension cord and wired the pump so I could hook it up to a car in the garage.  So just prior to having Noah float by I could hook things up in the garage and be good to go for as long as I had gas in the car to pump up the battery.   Now that I am adult I bought a generator and wired the house to take care of things.
    • Inevitably at least twice each season I will leave the house, drive 45 minutes and walk some of my favorite grouse spots for hours and hours, seeing nothing.  Admitting defeat on that day, I will drive 45 minutes back home, only to find a covey of birds in the driveway...
