E-Tec engine problem

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone first time poster, and even newer first time fisherman. I seem to have put myself in a bit of bother already, and would be grateful for some advice from the sages on here  please. On my Wilson Flyer I  have just acquired. I have a 2 stroke Evinrude E-Tec 75 HP. On filling up the oil cylinder I somehow managed to stupidly drop the small plastic bottle top ( 25ml wide, 10ml deep) inside the oil sump. Having tried to retrieve it for a couple of hours, NO JOY! My query on here is, will it damage anything mechanical on the motor, and somehow have to be taken out, or will it be  okay lying in the oil sump. The sump is one of them awkward dual level ones, and the way its fixed to the rest of the motor seems well beyond my doing. Any advice please.  Cheers!

I would be worried about the possibility of it causing a blockage. Can you drain all the oil out to give you more chance of retrieving it.

Well I've managed to get hold of a large syringe Brian, s'pose I give it a go tomorrow .I have not looked properly but can't see there being a drainage plug on it  tho'. Cheers Mate!

I have an 50 hp E Tec and would imagine yours is very similar. The oil tank is transclucent so shining a strong light through it

may reveal the caps whereabouts.after removing all the oil you can try putting an air line in it which should blow any loose objects out.

if you want any advice phone Paul Thorne at South Coast Outboards (Christchurch) 01202 496630 as he is a very nice guy that knows everything E Tec.

Regards Richard

Cheers Richard, I'll give it a go this week,  I've  got no airline, but I'll take the wife down to the boat, coz she's got a good pair of bellows!
