Hi. I just picked up an old boat and motor from my father ( he got it second hand too). We were told that the motor is either a 9.9 Johnson or Evinrude but there is no identification plate anywhere and the owner has painted the motor in camo. Short of removing the paint, is there any other way to identify the make and model? I need to get a manual and need to repair the recoil starter on it. Thanks.
