    The OMC code for both Evinrude and Johnson is as follows. Don't mind the other letters for this.
    INTRODUCES
    0123456789
    Example : 110TLRECS would be a '87 "EC"

    Earlier years have the last two digits of the year model.

    Example: 135TLR73S would be a "73 model

    Hope this helps.
