The main items that need inspection or replacement are listed in the operator's guide.
If you plan on servicing the engine by yourself, you will need the factory service manual for reference plus it contains instructions how to test or replace items on your motor.
See your dealer who can order you a manual or go to shop2.evinrude.com and after selecting the correct model number, choose the LITERATURE section.

The factory recommends that a properly trained technician service your Johnson or Evinrude outboard motor. Should you elect to perform repairs yourself, use caution, common sense, and observe safety procedures in the vicinity of flammable liquids, around moving parts, near high-temperature components, and working with electrical or ignition systems.
The information offered here is only general in nature and should not be construed as complete factory approved procedures, techniques, or specifications. Always use the proper service manual for your motor, up-to-date service literature, the correct tools, and have an understanding of how to proceed with troubleshooting and repair methods. If you are unsure or uncomfortable with a procedure, a situation, or a technique, enlist the services of a factory trained technician.
