"Standing in back of the engine and facing the spark plugs, port is to the left, starboard is to the right.
There should be a plate on the port transom bracket (bracket that attaches engine to the boat) that has the model and serial number imprinted.
You may also find a small quarter sized core plug (looks like a small freeze out plug) on the powerhead that has those same numbers. On the 1984 model, that core plug would be on top of the powerhead near the port cylinder head gasket.
