    I know you guys know where to look or how to find out what year is my 20 hp Merc. Serial # 0G009945.
    How about my old Johnson #1859400.
    Thanks.

    Your merc should have the month and year right above the serial #

    On your johnson look near the transom bracket. there should be a longer number with the hp and year listed.

    My book doesn't drop the merc number back that low but I am guessing that it to be in the mid ninties.. I think the OG series started in 94

    The other one I will need the model number to find it.

    alot of johnnyrude product the year can be determind by usingthe following equation. From 1980 to present OMC uses INTRODUCES.


    Take the word INTRODUCES and start with 1 and number each the letter of the word, the last letter will be a 0 and not a ten.

    INTRODUCES
    1234567890

    I=1
    N=2
    T=3
    R=4
    O=5
    D=6
    U=7
    C=8
    E=9
    S=0
    Take the last 3 digits of the model #. The first two on this number using the equation will be your year.

    Hope this helps.
