Basic maintenance, having not run for a while

Hi! I have a 1980 Evinrude 25hp Outboard: E25ELCSA E - Evinrude 25 - 25 horse power E - Electric Start L - 20 inch shaft length CS - built in 1980 A - Model run or sufix It hasn't run for about 2 years. I had it completely serviced just before it last run. I have just given it a proper clean with a pressure washer and now I want to get it running again - I have a new battery ready to be fitted. So my questions are: 1. what is the ideal fuel mixture to run? ( I read a previous response for a 4hp motor) 2. should I remove the spark plug and replace with a new one? if so, any advice welcome. 3. is there anything else I should clean/ change? filters etc (how would I check them first? they should have had very little use) thanks in advance for any/ all the advice.

    some hands-on advice from someone who services thier own outbaord motors would be really appreciated.

  • bencottman Apr 14, 2009

    thanks for the advice - is it a pair of plugs used in outboards this size?
    I didn't actively drain the fuel, so I suppose there must have been some fuel in the system.
    I'll check for loose parts - good idea.
    thanks.

LEAVE THE FUEL MIXTURE ALONE, IT IS SET UP ON A FLOW BENCH BY THE FACTORY AND SHOULD NEVER NEED ADJUSTMENT, YES A NEW SET OF PLUGS, CHECK ALL THE FILTERS AND REPLACE THEM AS NECESSARY. DID U LEAVE FUEL IN THE ENGINE WHILE IT WAS STORED, WAS GAS STABILIZER ADDED?? LOOK FOR ANY LOOSE PARTS, THEY TEND TO VIBRATE LOOSE.

    YOU WILL NEED TO GET THE PLUGS FROM THE AUTHORIZED PARTS DISTRIBUTOR FOR YOUR ENGINE, MOST BOAT SALES AND REPAIR SHOPS FOR BOATS CAN GET THEM FOR U OR WILL HAVE THEM IN STOCK.

    U CAN ALSO GIVE THEM THE NUMBER OFF YOUR OLD PLUGS AND THEY CAN CROSS IT OVER TO A NEWER NUMBER (IF THERE IS ONE), THAT IS MOST LIKELY THE BEST WAY, DO A GOGGLE SEARCH OF THE PLUG NUMBER FOR A BETTER PRICE.

1997 3cyl 25HP Evinrude outboard Would changing the carbs to 35HP carbs make this a 35HP motor?


Depends if the bore and stroke are the same, if they are not, adding larger jetted carbs can result in always running rich. The mixture would be incorrect for the amount of air the cylinders take in.

Evinrude serial numbers 18902bc 53303


It looks like you have an old one....?

model # and serial # are on the mounting bracket, port side.
1980 and later, the model number will start with "J25" followed by 5 or 6 characters. there might be another letter in front of the "J".

1956 to 1980, most model #'s begin with the horsepower, before that, it's more random.

Commercial, military and racing versions each have their own model # sequence.

I have a 1980 evinrude outboard motor. It is overheating. We have changed out the water pump, took the thermostat out and checked it, it works fine. What else could it be?


I could possibly give you a better explanation if I knew the horse power of the outboard. However hear is what happens to most "tiller" operated outboards. Water pumps are made from a pliable soft rubber which by the way needs water to lubricate it even if you just crank it over to check something, or fire it up for a few seconds on a dry impeller will destroy it. Most often a few pieces will fly off and enter the water cooling system and then lodge in one of the small passage ways blocking water flow. When a new impeller is installed the engine runs pumps water and overheats.
