Sounds like you lost the power pack ,or the coil but then it could be the auto shutoff cord too

What is the oil to gas ratio in my 4 horse Evinrude< Model # E4BRHCOB Ser # B101702


50:1 since the late 60's
Too much oil will gum up the rings, smoke too much and foul plugs. Use ONLY major outboard manufacturers oil, Mercury, Yamaha, Johnson/Evinrude TCW-3. They work the best, and no alcohol fuel.

Evinrude 40hp outboard


First, the over heating alarm is for YOU to shut the motor down...
Replace the water pump assembly..(have a different mechanic do it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)... they are NOT all created equal!!

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.

We have a 1967 2 strok mercury 65 outboard motor. wont start cold


Wow.It sounds like some people I know.Late starters.Don,t get out of bed 'till 10 am.With all you have written, a check on the operation of the choke (cold start) would be worth looking at.As you crank the motor,squeeze the fuel bulb at the same time and see if that also may help.Hope this helps

35hp Johnson evinrude outboard not running at full potential


Hi, did you buy your engine used? Sounds like your gonna have to get the carb or carbs cleaned. Its possible you could have a stopped up fuel filter, or not enough spark but i am guessing its gonna be the carbs. They got some gunk in em i bet. Probably old fuel turned to gunk from setting up. I had the same problem on my 40 horse.

No acceleration


I'd be checking fuel flow. Usually if you have to choke or squeeze a primer bulb to keep it going, the motor isn't getting enough fuel. Check all fuel lines and connections are air tight, then if problem persists, investigate fuel pump.

A good carburettor cleanout and new carb overhaul kit wont hurt either.

What is the correct fuel/oil mix for evinrude 4hp ?


the proper mix is 50 to 1 or 16 oz to every 6 gallons,in my little boat I put 4 quarts in the 48 gal tank and its been running for 22 years,your running way to rich and your plug is probaly fouled,take it out clean it up/dump your fuel and mix it right,thats a great motor you got,I hunted with it for years,oh yeah when you get started run it till all the smoke is gone or you will have carb problems ,if you dont have them all ready,a little carb cleaner wont hurt but get it running first,or all that trash will foul you out,have a great trip bartriley1
