Would you be interested in a non-VRO practically brand new (less than 50 original hours) 1983 Johsnon 70? I'm in Chicago.

I have an Evinrude 90 VRO from 1985 and still have a lot to learn about outboards. Was there a significant change or upgrade to these motors beginning in 1988 or does it have to do with pairing with a specific year hull?

85 90hp I believe is still powerhead rated hp where 86 and up were at the prop.

What are the options year wise to match the 1988 90 Johnson VRO I am trying to replace.

If I cannot find a newer 90 Johnson VRO what what would be the best replacement that would match the controls .

Yeah they would...a 2006 would match your controls. What you need is a wiring harness adapter($50) to match your systems check engine to your older guages along with a systems check idiot light guage or a new tach with them built in.
