Help Identifying parts for a J10RSLG

Postby jiam » Fri Sep 21, 2018 4:59 pm

Hi Guys,
My father has a an older motor that he got in the 80's but still runs like a charm, now I need to buy a thermostat and the water pump but I cannot find the model year. The plate is marked with J10RSLG and I could figure this much...

J= Johnson
10 = Horse Power
RS= Rope Start
L=Long shaft
G=?

Any help is appreciated.

Thank you,
Javier

PS: I also have the serial number.

10RSLG-2 is a 1981 Commercial motor
10RSLC is a 1983 Commercial motor.

So...does it have a -2?
Or...is it a "C" instead of "G" ? or something else?

Remove the cowling and look at the top of the block for the 1" silver disc( welch plug). It may be easier to read the model # there than the transom clamp ID tag.

Finding parts for less popular models is sometimes a problem. This commercial motor was not sold thru the USA dealer network so parts catalogs are very hard to find. Most likely these were sold originally in the Caribbean, Mexico, Central and South America. Thus this highlights another problem that OMC had in supporting motor owners. Yamaha still does the same thing with outboards. South America has two maybe three different versions sold.

I agree on the Commercial oddball issue. I would think the t stat and water pump parts would be the same as the regular 9.9 models? The Commercial model may have a different gearcase?

Thank you guys for the input, you are correct he did buy it in South America - Uruguay.
I figured the model may look different but the parts should work fine from another model.
So what model could I use?
Should I just pick a 9.9 from the 80's ?

Thank you,
Javier

Used a wall chart from Evinrude Johnson BuRP that is in our shop. This chart was sent to dealers about ten years ago. Newest model year listed 2008. Also listed in dealer book 766121 2011 Parts and accessories book showing up tp 2010 motors.
