Evinrude 25 pk 2 stroke 2cyl outbord boatmotor

Hi ,

i have the problem that my 2 cylinders evinrude boatengine is only working on 1 cyl after approx 10 to 15 min on sea.

When i release the trottle then (sometimes) the second cylinder is catching up again and keep on working when i stay below a certain rpm.

I have changed the 2 spark plugs and then it works again on 2 cylinders, but again after approx 10-15 minutes the 2nd cylinder is again giving up... i think it is a combined problem, unless i use the wrong sparkplugs. I have now the Champion L85 short spark plugs. Starting the engine (manual) is no problem, even when working on 1 cylinder.

I have technical education and can do a lot myself, i only need suggestions.

I have tested the spark plugs when not fitted into the engine to check the spark and i have the impression that the little spark of one cylinder is white and i think it should be blue.

Thanks anyway for some advice.

Hello enjoy42. From the information you have provided I would lean to the weak cylinder coil. Unplug the good spark plug wire & test run the engine on the weak cylinder. You could go to swapping the coils on the cylinders. Check your wiring terminals on the coils. Check with a marine dealer for the correct plug. I owned a 35 Evinrude on a Bass boat & it would out run my buddys 40 Mercury. Good Fishing.

I have a 1998 model E25RMECA I NEED TO KNOW WHAT TYPE GAS TO USE IN IT. AND IF IT IS 2 CYCLE OR 4CYCLE.


I found a mixture of sites for the information
one owner of a 1998 25 hp evinrude says that it is a 2 stroke with a fuel mix ratio of 50:1 as 25:1 is a bit smokey
another site says that the recommended octane fuel rating is 87 although it might run better on 91
best advice is to find an evinrude service dealer and get the right information as the later 25 hp units are etec engine which will be 4 strokes

Johnson and Evinrude carbureted 2-stroke outboards since 1964 require a 50:1 fuel to oil mixture (2%) on engines without an automatic oiling system - 6 gallons of gas to 1 pint of outboard oil.

How do i replace the water pump in a 2005 150 hp evinrude outboard motor


Take the cowling off. Also drop the foot. There wil be a stainless linkage rod that runs the length of the motor that you will have undo to drop the foot. The water impeller will be inside a stainless casing that you will have to disassemble.
