    I need some help.  I picked up this motor a few months back for my Noe'.  The previous owner pumped the ball too much...blew the fuel line off, flooded inside the cowling and then started it.  Needless to say there was a slight fire.  The good news. No electronics were damaged the only thing that melted were a few plastic pieces like the starter and the air silencer.  I have a few parts that were taken off.  I was wondering if anyone had any experience with this engine.  I believe they were all the same from 1973 to 1990??? or so???? not sure on that.  I need some parts diagrams so I can figure out what I need to order. Or some detailed pictures of an intact one!!  Any help is greatly appreciated!!

    Area that's missing the most parts.

    I found the parts diagrams on evinrude.com, but some are a little hard to read.

    I help a buddy of mine get a 82' model 7.5 back running and we found some used parts on ebay. It's hit or miss but he had a damaged trottle cable that was over a $100 and we found the whole tiller handle asembly on ebay for $10. Many of the parts from the 6hp and 8hp in that year rang are the same.
