Customer Question

I have a parts "interchangability" question. I'm looking to replace the engine cowl hood cover on my 1983 35HP Johnson Outboard motor. I see used replacement engine covers advertised on ebay, for example, but they don't say "fits 1983 model year Johnson outboards.
Can you tell me which other years and HP sizes will work on my 1983 35 HP Johnson Outboard motor?
Thank you for your assistance.

PS: The model number for my 1983 Johnson is J35ELCTS and I believe the OEM 1983 part number I'm looking to replace is 393451.

Hello John. My name is Tan.

There aren't many choices. Here is your cover and the models that are compatible. Scroll down the page just below the part number and it lists compatible engines.

Here is a link to your motor.

They list 2 part numbers. Either will work.
