    I am workin on my boat motor, 18 hp Evinrude, not so sure of the year model.....serial # E0008416, model # 25602E( its either E or L). Anyway, what I need is a head gasket for it. It is lettin water in on the top of my pistons. My question is...where around NE Miss/Tenn (local to us or online) can I find this part and how much should I be lookin to pay for it?. Another question I have is, how do I determine what year model it is? A lot of info is wore off therefore what info i have on it besides the #'s above is here say. I appreciate any help you can send my way.......Thanks

    Hershell, your motor will be older than 1980 according to the manual that I have. Back on Hwy 57 going from Pocahontas back toward Pickwick, there is a place on the other side of Big Hill Pond State Park where there are a lot of boats on the side of the road. The fellow's name is Ken Fortune and he can help you get just about anything you need for a boat. Just tell him Jim Marshall sent you. If you need more info as how to get there let me know.

    If you took that model number off the motor then what you have isn't an 18 h/p its a 25 h/p 1973 model. If you can't do any good where jim is talking about I'll look up the number of the gasket and you can go to any NAPA store and they can order it and get it in about 2 days.


    25602e is a 1973 25 H/P evenrude
