Hi!

The easiest visual test to see if your motor is pumping cooling water is that the water will come out the "check hole" just below the engine bonnet.
However. it's possible that the check hole has become clogged with debris. A piece of thin wire or even a toothpick should be enough to get the debris loosened so water will flow.
You can buy "ear muffs" at any chandlery to hook your motor up to a garden hose for your test.

WARNING!
If steam is coming out of the hole, SHUT THE MOTOR DOWN IMMEDIATELY! You'll overheat the motor and cause a very spendy repair job.

Good Luck

2010 150 Evinrude E-Tech. Motor was running great then just shut off. Will not start again.Could it be it needes to be reset, all 4 lights at tach light up showing good.


first bit of advice
do not use e-mix fuels in outboard engines
WHY
because ethanol separates from the fuel if not used continuously so letting it stand between outings is not good
secondly ethanol is hygroscopic which means that it absorbs moisture from the air that is going in via the tank vent and that results in corroded aluminium parts and rusted fuel tanks and outboards operate in a very moisture laden environment
now for the problem
being a late model engine , it should be a 4 stroke and like any 4 stroke engine , check the timing belt/chain, crank/cam position sensors , ignition module
it is important to check all harness connections as salt water rapidly causes corrosion in electrical connections and components
have the service agent do a scan for fault codes remember this
Suzuki out board 2 stroke motors were used in the early suzuki 4x4 cars and modern 4 stroke engines are simply car engines on end

I have a 1985 suzuki rm80 dirt bike and I got water in oil I put a new water pump on it and just had motor rebuild it's still getting water in oil what to do


Hi, Chris I would take it back to the guy who rebuilt the motor and politely demand satisfaction for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry. If necessary transport your bike to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your issue.

Are the controls for a 1998 15 HP 2 stroke Mercury outboard compatible with a 2011 30 HP 4 stroke Mercury outboard


If your old engine/control has the same 'options' as the30hp, yes everything is compatible... (Electric start or trim )
The throttle and shift cables are allways compatible...

2 stroke


the oil injection cable is out of sync with thottle

The pump is set to a very specific position in relation to the carburetor opening. The manual will reveal all.

As I recall - and I could be wrong - it's been 30 years! since I last played with one - it was full open on the throttle/twist grip and there was a mark on the pump body that was supposed to align with a mark on the arm that the pump cable attaches to. Adjust the oil pump cable till it aligns. DO check with a Suzuki dealer though!

2002 15hp mercurty 2 stroke long shaft need 2 know installation specs 4 propeller depth from top of transom model # 1015211zd


I have a 1979 Johnson 15hp Long shaft, and as a single motor just followed the rule of a shortshaft motor for a short transom and a longshaft for a deep transom. You have a little adjustment in the mount clamp. You want enough shaft not to cavitate and want the trim fin below the hull. If this is a kicker motor you want it deep enough for water pickup but less deep for drag on fixed mount.
