I have an Evinrude 7.5hp outboard motor.Mod# 8RC1A SN# 0178194. What Year of manufd? How to mix fuel & what octane fuel to use & what oil to use? Help me go fishing, thanks.


91 octane rating ( no e-mix fuels ) and proper outboard oil ( not normal engine oil)
outboard oil has a property that allows the oil residue to stick to the metal bits and helps prevent rust
e-mix fuels absorb moisture and and rusts out steel tanks , destroys rubber components and corrodes aluminium components
the model you have is not listed on any 7.5 hp engine from 1950 to 1958
model number starts at 4434 to 7512 to 7525 in 1958
for a better answer , talk with an evinrude service center who should have a chart listing your motor
units with oil injection are 50: 1 ratio and others are 6 gallons to 1 pint of oil which is around 45:1
I would seek advice from an evinrude service center for the correct fuel to oil ratio for your engine
to mix the fuel , put the oil in first then the flow from the bowser will effectively mix it up to start with
then fit the cap on the tank and shake it up yourself

85 40hp evinrude stuck in forward?


Evinrude used a shift mechanism located in the lower unit that is actuated by a rod up to the linkage in the motor housing. It could be stuck anywhere along the way or the gear that shifts on the shaft could be immobile due to rust and corrosion.

You may want to find a blowup of your exact model via a Google search. Then starting from the top look for your problem. be sure to mark the position of anything adjustable so you can at least get it back to the original position when you reassemble it.

Evinrude outboards


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.

1988 evinrude outboard


You need to replace the oil seal on the main shaft located below the water pump. Your lower unit gear oil is seeping into the water pump housing. I had the same problem on a Yamaha that I just repaired. Not a hard job. 7_12_2013_1_59_18_pm.png

My outboard is an evinrude 25 hp model 25904R serial A350120 it has got an oil leak on the gear casing on opposite side to filler screws in rear top corner


This sounds like normal "unburnt" fuel oil mix draining of the inner surface of the exhaust.It usually comes right out of the exhaust by the propeller.

You can check the lower for water contamination by removing the lower drain plug (and only) and see what comes out. If it looks like milky stuff, you are due for a re-seal job.

If still in doubt, you can have a mechanic with a pressure tester put 15# (and only) to it and see if it bleeds down.

Gear box oil leak


Here is a website where a manual for you outboard may be purchased.  Outboard Marine went out of buisness in 2000 and thus no parts of origial manufacture are support is available . Therir are secondary markets .    THe Lower case splits in half and their is a seal around the prop shiftm which is pressed in. The seal between the cases are cut o-rings which are placed and glued into place with gasket seal.
The water pump is located where the case splits a little bit higher. You must open the little port on the side and take out one of the screws to the connecting shift linkage to split the case. After splitting the case the drive shaft and water pickup tube(s) wil come out of the powwer head or the tubs may stick into the power head which is ok. Place the lower skag into a vice and remove the 4 or 5 screws to the water pump housing. Remove and replace impellor and impellor plate if available. If part(pieces) of the rubber impellor is missing flush out the tubes and the power head to remove them.   When reinstalling the lower unit use a flash light to make sure that the tubes return  to the proper place in the power head and the shift lever is resecured. If you need more assistance, just write back. I was an Outboard motor mechanic for five years about the time of your motor.
