Spineyes 88 SPL or Evinrude 90

I may be just too stupid to deserve to live but I don't know anything about the 88 SPL motor. Do any of you have an 88 or know what makes it special?

Thanks

We have a 96 model. It's just premix (mix your own oil and gas) is all. They also made a 48SPL.

I Have one, and love it.

I called the Houston Johnson/Evenrude Specialist for an answer to your question- Outboard Jack of Stone & Son Marine

Its called an 88 spcl because it is a no frills engion.
It does not have the amenties like the 90 or 115hp have

Outboard Jack didnt go into specifics.

All I know is I have never had any problems with Mine.

Iv done a few Carb breakdowns and the basic maintence like Impeller and lower unit oil & She runs like a champ.

The last time I went through the carbs on a yearly check up and they were perfect.

I only use Johnson 2 cycle and believe me, that has been the best 2 cycle.
No build up or gum up. Wont put any other brands in my gas tank.

BTW,
My engion is almost 10 years old, and I figure I have got nearly 1,000 hrs on it.

andmar is a Landlubber (+10 to -10)
The 88 SPL originally came without tilt and trim, ran pre-mix oil, and there is a difference in the alternator output (the spl is about 1/2 that of a 90).

Talking oh....I see

Thanks guys for the response. I knew someone would have the answer. I feel safer mixing the oil and gas anyway.

I have the same one.

I have an 1988 model and in addition to the above, The charging system is unrequlated, The carbs are a fixed orfice type ( No adjustment to air and fuel) now it does have plastic bowels, but can be changed out to metal if need be ( reason being that over time the plastic warps and will allow air/ fuel leak) and mine came with a SS impeller housing.
I lOVE IT. No problems, nice and easy to work on. Can rebuild the carbs and just slap back on, the thermostats are a bugger to replace though, but it has never left me stranded ( Knock on wood). As for the trim and tilt....mine has it....maybe an add on, but it has OMC stamped on it and not an after market.

I have one on my 17' Whaler. It is a good motor. Plenty of torque. Kinda thirsty. Mine has factory tilt and trim. I heard that there was an extra bearing that makes it an 88HP instead of 90HP, but that may have been dock talk? Anyway, my 94 model has been real reliable for me.

Ihad the 88/88 special i got it in 1990 and had not one single issue with it until july 4th of 2004, I blew a cylinder. I beleive I am just about ready to buy a 115 johnson to replace it, any input would be great on the 115. I talked with Jack today at stone and sons and he thinks the 88/88 I have is one of finest motors built, he wants to buy it from me for parts. the 88 spcl is one hard working fine motor, I swear not one issue with it in 14 years.
