" Kevin,

Are you sure it is model number E40EGR... not E40ECR...??? Or are there additional letters in the model number?

If it is E40ECR it is a 1984.

" I've got the same problem. I have an Evinrude Fisherman, 6hp, 6020D, 62120J09596. Anyone have any idea what year it is? And, what it's worth? It runs fine. "

"I hate to keep doubting these model numbers... but are you sure you entered that correctly, 6020D ?

If it is actually 6202 it is a 6HP from 1972.

If it is actually 6002 it is a 6HP from 1970.

" Thanks so much. It's supposed to be 6202D. My daughter transcribed it wrong. I'll go to the link for a manual.

" Found this while trawling the web. Could be useful:

Imbedded in the model number is the Make, horsepower and year of the engine.
For example:
If your model number is J200TLCOS your engine is a 1985 200hp Johnson engine.

-The first Letter corresponds to the first letter of the make of your engine. ie. J for Johnson, or E for Evinrude.
-The next numbers are the engine hp.
-The second to last two letters correspond to the year listed in the chart below. eg. 'CO' in this case.

1980(CS) 1981(CI) 1982(CN) 1983(CT) 1984(CR)1985(CO) 1986(CD) 1987(CU) 1988(CC) 1989(CE)
1990(ES) 1991(EI) 1992(EN) 1993(ET) 1994(ER) 1995(EO) 1996(ED) 1997(EU) 1998(EC) 1999(EE)
2000(SS) 2001(SI) "

" I have a 1960 evinrude fisherman. 5.5 hp
It was torn down, new rings and fuel pump and reassembled.

It runs but does not seem to have any power.
Any ideas what to look for?

Also, what should be the compression on each of the cylinders? The manual does not say. "
