In 1980, OMC began using a new system to identify the model year of their outboards. The word "INTRODUCES" was used with a number assigned to each letter.

I -1
N -2
T -3
R -4
O -5
D -6
U -7
C -8
E -9
S -0

The last letter of the model number denotes the plant of manufacture. The preceeding two letters indicate the year of manufacture. eg - CE=89

That's it. Good luck-

oldbayrat .... The last OMC V6 gearcase I sold I got $150 for. This was a lower unit in good working condition. As fas as a used outboard I would check Blackbirds ... they rebuld them right and guarantee them. Here's their website If your looking new I don't think you can beat Ed's marine in virginia. Here's their site if your interested Personaly if my 1990 225hp rude blows I'm repowering with a new johnson 225 hp and I'm gettting it from Ed's. Sure I'd love a new yamaha hpdi but I could buy 2 225hp johnsons for the same price and keep one for a spare .. screw the gas milage thing. just my opinion.

Hey Boat Thanks
I checked out Eds the other day i know what you mean about the price of the yamies. And the 225 looks like the way to go.
Will my controlls/elecric harness fit i have a 1982 115 hp.? I will check out 1outboard. again thanks

I am very familiar with all outboard engines and I have to tell you that if you have an old Johnson then you might as well sell it for parts because if yuo spend the money to rebuild it you will only get one or two good seasons out of it. Those engines are pretty much junk after about four years.

Capt J, You didn't say that someone would get 1-2 years on a Johnson rebuilt ~after~ the first 7 years, lol, ..... I do plan to sell this package this spring only because because I have upgraded to a bigger boat. Another OMC motor too !!! Thanks, roger

I didn't mean that your engine would die after 2 years new. But if it is old only to consider splurging for a new one. What size boat do You have? If it is a small one with a motor under 150hp than they are pretty good ones. But if it is a larger boat with a 200 or 250hp then I still suggest a new engine(or not to buy one that big new).

My apologies ... Mine is a smaller Johnson. 55 hp. I must agree with you on the bigger engines. Not that I have any experiences with them, only heard bad about big motors, period. With the exception with yami & honda. My .02 See Ya
