Johnson & Evinrude 1979-2007 outboard motor model code explanation

In ordering any parts you will need to give the model listed on the nameplate
Primarily needed are (Make)  (HP)  (Year made) Secondary will be (Shaft length) &  (Start type)

If there is no 1st letter before the make letter, then this would have been a US made motor
         (Example. AJ15ELECF) = Australia, Johnson, 15hp, Electric start, long shaft, 1998, revision F.    
If it is a 4 stroke there will be a number 4 just prior to the year code(AJ15EL4ECF)
2 strokes will not have a number there.
Also a bit of extra info as for a not so common commercial 1999 25hp Johnson, the model number could be AJ25RL3EEM. The A refers to Australia, the "3" in there indicates three cylinders. "R" is rope start.  Or it could be AJ25RQEEM with the Q referring to 3 cylinder trim/tilt
