1985 Evinrude 30 hp question

Post by hitower » 31 Aug 2016, 20:58

Guys I've been looking for a parts motor for spare parts and maybe add an electric start for my 85 30hp.
I think in 1985 they changed the way the rated the hp.
So my question is if I'm looking for a pre 85 parts motor, am I looking for the 35 hp motors?

For the parts you are looking for the answer is yes. You can widen your search for engines all the way down to the 20hp. Same brackets, starter, etc.
If you are in doubt just do a cross search with marine engine for the same part numbers.
