Could be wrong, but was there not a period of time that OMC or Bombadier or whoever owned evinrude/johnson at the time produced their own fourstrokes.? Second are clearly suzuki, but the first one isn't..

I'm sure Fichts only started at 90hp with OMC. bombardier then bought In to them about 2002 - 2003 ( I think) they spent a fortune sorting out issues then evinrude bought them out and developed the e-tec.
Mine is a 1999. It's got 196 hrs on in total and apart from the minor issue's it's an excellent engine and massive power to weight

I think you will find that Evinrude are part of Bombardier Recreational Products (BRP)

aye, they are now, but in the good old days, they were owned by OMC. A combination of faults with the FICHT engines which earned them a poor reputation (I had mine for 6 years & it never missed a beat) & developing the Etec, sent them under. This allowed the Japs to gain a stronger foothold in Europe which Evinrude have struggled to overcome. Combined with low service costs, which makes them unattractive to dealers, the brand has suffered in recent years.
