Good morning, my name is Jason.
85 Means 85 horsepower.
E is electric start
T is power trim
L Is long shaft
R is Remote Control
76 is the year it was made, 1976
G is a suffix for a production run. For example, they would have made 1000 of these motors and as long as there were no changes it would get a production run code of A, if there was any kind of little change made, the next production run would be a B so on and so forth. This last letter really doesn't mean anything unless you are looking up parts for the engine, in which case you need to make sure you are looking up parts for a 85ETLR76G, and not, just for example, a 85ETLR76B
I think that should do it. Just in case you do not understand the way the website works (and some folks do not). You do have to put forth a positive rating in order for it to credit me for helping you. When ratings are not done, the website simply keeps your deposit and they will not credit me. The ratings box is located at the top of the screen. To rate, you must select the star you wish and also confirm it. Please let me know if you run into any problems or errors when trying to do it. If you do have a problem, or if you can not see the ratings box which is at the top of the screen. Please reply back "I rate Jason's service _______" and fill in the blank.
Questions do not close out, so if you have to come back later on with follow up questions to the issue you still can even after doing a rating.
It looks like you read my answer without replying back or leaving a rating for my service. Was there anything else?
