Re: ETEC 250 High RPM Fuel Issue

OK great advice.  Did not know that and will avoid till problemis fixed.  Got the part # too.  Will test Lift Pump for vacuum and air in fuel line next.  Do you have a thought about the regulator check valve not opening at 15+ PSI?  Thanks!

Problem solved.  Instead of performing the Lift Pump Vacuum Test I replaced the fuel hose from the primer to the Lift Pump.  Further examination of the 2008 B1 Fuel Hose found dissolved lining that was clogging fuel flow due to Ethanol.  Thanks to all for your advice.082817 Clogged B1 (2) - Copy.jpg

Re: ETEC 250 High RPM Fuel Issue

We are glad to hear that you found the problem. What make of hose was it as it was not Evinrude and is it 3/8" inner diameter? There are worm-gear hose clamp marks on it and it is suggested that you fasten them with a full-circle clamp for better sealing. Use an Oediker Clamp as that is what Evinrude suggests.

 

Is there any more gray hose on the boat, if so, replace it now. Check the primer ball that it is genuine Evinrude and that there are no pieces of internal hose debris in it.  Replace the motor fuel filter also.

I have replaced all of the greay B hoses.  The Mako314 is from 2002.  The hoses were on the boat when I bought it 5 years ago so the previous owner must have done so.  They were Merc hoses on ETEC's.082817 Clogged B1 (2) copy.jpg

Mercury had all kinds of hose problems similar to yours some years back due to those hoses.

 

Install new fuel lines with the fire-resistant A1-15 rating imprinted on the side from the tank to the transom well. You can then use the B1-15 type to the motor. Make sure the hose you purchase has the marking printed about every 12" along its length per Coast Guard and Federal regulations.
