Model - E60ELCOD
Serial - J0548314

19XX Evinrude 60hp. 2Cyl.

Weird, I thought the 40 and 50hp models were made from this 2 cylinder block during the mid eighties. I recall that the 60 and 70hp models used a 3 cylinder...

Will I experience a noticeable defficiency in torque with the 60hp 2 cyl. vs. the 60hp 3 cyl.?

Thanks, Ed

That motor is a 1985 model, 20" shaft, electric start, ect.

Hi, Ed.

Your 'Rude is a 1985.

The 2 cylinder loopers were made from the early 70s to 2003. The triples were made from the early 70s to the late 90s.

Most of the twins were 40 or 50, most of the triples were 70s.

The 60 twins and 75 triples were made for higher WOT on smaller lighter boats. The 60 triples were made for smoother operation and better hole shot on boats limited (by USCG rating) to 60 hp.

Yes, a 60 triple would have more low and mid-range torque than the twin.

Thanks Tom and JB.

Though it lacks the third cylinder, I am excited about this setup as the motor must be pretty light for its 60 ponies - despite having an external/add on (ugly) power TnT.

Any idea what this motor weighs?

When trying to determine what year your engine is, use the word.....INTRODUCES...
the "I" is #1 the "N" is #2 the T"" is #3 the "R" is #4 the "O' is # 5 the"D" is # 6 the "U" is # 7 the "C" is #8 the "E" is # 9 the "s" is #0..........
Starting at the back of your model #, go back 3 letters, the 3rd letter back on your model # is a "C", now look at the word "INTRODUCES" & the letter "C" is number "8", the second to the last letter of your model # is "o", the letter "o" in the word "INTRODUCES" is the number "5".
Thats the year of your engine...85.
The first "E' in your model # is E for Evinrude, the 60 is the hp, the next "E" is Electric start, the "L in your model # is the length of your shaft, which is long = 20"

Wow, 183 lbs? My dad and I had a cobia with a 1970 60hp 3cyl Evinrude w/o power trim and it probably went about 300-350 lbs. F14

Nope those old 3 cyls were 202 or 212 I believe. Engines have gotten heavier with time, not lighter.
