    I noticed that there is a limited amount of early 90's 20hp evinrudes running around. I'm just curious if anyone has any feedback on these. Are parts hard to come by? I'm thinking about purchasing, so any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks guys.

    "I have had several evinrude 20hp's. A 20hp is basically a 25-35 hp, their based on the same block and are nearly identical to each other. A manual from 1985 to new is about the same as your motor, in fact, a new one is so close you could get a new manual and it should suffice, its a good motor!"


    From what I have found they seem like good motors. I had an '84 9.9 JohnnyRude and it was a fantastic little motor.

    Great motors, like others have said. Easy upgrade to 30hp with a simple carb and throttle plate swap too, in case you get a hankerin for some more power. I have a '85 Evinrude 25 that i have bumped up to 30, gets my 14' alumacraft up to 32mph.

    I have a 1982 35 hp Johnson and a mid 80's 20 hp Johnson parts motor. Pretty much everything is interchangeable for the 20-35 hp models.

    +1 on everyone else's comments, These are some of the best motors ever made IMHO.

    Mine is the epitome of a 2 stroke; Loud, Smokey, Rough at idle but super smooth at speed and a trooper too.
