As I mentioned in another thread, I want to order a Johnson Shop manual for my 48HP OB. The previous owner said he thinks this is a late 96' engine. The foil sticker on the transom mount that has the serial and model numbers is half worn away an illegible. Is there anywhere else a model # would be listed on these engines?

The freeze plugs on the engine block also have the serial or model # on them. Look on the block for a round little plug thingy.

The books usually cover a range of years, so if you're close, it shouldn't be a problem. Steve

Thanks, Bigshot
I found the serial # on the freeze plug, right on top of the engine. I will call Johnson to get the model # and production year.

Alex,

Once you find the model number, use this chart to decipher it:

That chart, and a Swedish-English dictionary.
