Here is a pic of a 1985 9.9 hp.
Characteristics similar to yours.
I'd reckon you've got mid 80s - 1990 engine

No they dont have them on the smaller outboards M chappelow but I did have the number 8 on the block of the 8HP where the 6Hp had nothing and without a vin plate it could be very hard to tell them apart it could be a 6HP and just have a 8HP cowel, I found this site a good read :www.leeroysramblings.com

How comfortable are you on buying a motor without its serial number ? On the newer motors it's sometimes understandable, as they use stickers which could get power washed off etc but on that age it might have been a metal plate riveted on. Be sure to do your checks. www.stolenboats.org.uk is a good starting place
