2001 90cv ficht ram problem

Hi, i'm Gianni from Rome, italy.
I'm new on those arguments, and i'm sorry for the non exact things i can say on this topic.
Me and a friend of mine we have a problem with the engine in object. The problem is that the engine start regular, but when we go to high rpm the engine go in off. A service here rhey say that it's a problem of EMM, but i'm not sure about the competence of this service.
Can i find somewhere the engine parameters to compare with actual??
Someone have some suggestions to give me to help to solve the problem??
Thank you
Admiral

Hello Gianni,

There are special tests that have to be performed on the motor before determining that the EMM is at fault.

 

You can purchase a service manual from  www.outboardbooks.com  or find an experienced Evinrude technician with the knowledge and experience with older FICHT outboard motors.

Thank you for answer.
In our area we can't find a good technician, that's why i try to help to determinate if the EMM is fault.
The strange thing is that, when we download parameters, the navigation hours ore about 65000.
That's why we think to a fault.
Do you think we have a way to reprogram the EMM or substitute with another, always 90cv??
Thanks in advance and really sorry for my english mistskes

There are several companies in the US that specialize in testing and repairing the FICHT EMMs. They are not associated with or endorsed by Evinrude but have been doing it for years.

Eric at Marine computers supply was great. He spent 45 minutes on the phone with me discussing the 2004 150 Ficth that's on the boat I may buy.

Eric is a good guy. He used to be one of the FICHT engineers at OMC and years ago started DFI, then sold it, then years later, opened MCS.
