New to the form ( LOVE MY ETEC) I have a 2015 etec 25hp model number E25DRGABF tiller model I want to convert her from a tiller to steering. Here is a list of what I alread have.
Electric start kit 5008836
Etec concealed side mount control
UFLEX - tilt rotary steering Helm, UFLEX Tilt helm< and my steering wheel.
I Need the right 15ft Wire Harnes, Key Switch with Horn, and control arm. also Do I have to run a Smart Tach for this size motor?
ALSO I know with some merc you can convert a 25 to a 30HP. Can this be done with ETEC
The EPA regulations provide for fines and possible jail time for anyone tampering with the power output or the emissions output of a 1999 or newer motor. Not only that but there are no "chips" that you are describing used in an E-TEC outboard.
Evinrude makes tiller kits available for remote-controlled equipped motors but there is no kit to change from tiller to remote. You will have to look up the different parts according to your model number at shop.evinrude.com or work with a knowledgeable dealer for the needed items.
The dealer will also have to use his diagnostic software to reprogram the EMM so your motor knows that it is not a tiller anymore as there are start-in-gear protections that have to changed.
defitnitly not trying to get in trouble 25hp is good enough. Thanks for the info.
Any ideas on the part numbers for a wire harness, key switch with horn, steering arm, and will I need the electric all in one Tach(system ). Or will any Tach work.
Evinrude has several wiring harnesses, keyswitch panels, and tachometers available. It is best to work with your dealer because items come in various lengths and styles.
Be aware that even with a System Check tachometer with the four LED warning lights, only the LOW OIL light will be operational with your engine.
Here is a link to an available engine rigging guide that may help you with your project.
