Question on new Etec 150’s G1

So I just got done rigging a pair of 2018 150’s G1’s.  I noticed when firing up each new engine that the counter rotation does not have a Pee hole while the standard rotation does, Standard has a good water stream, while the counter just kinda spits water.

 

Am I missing something here?

The water tell-tale outlet fitting should be the same on both motors. They do not shoot out a high pressure narrow stream like some other models do, they each have a 3/8" inner diameter tube located in the flushing port on the back of the motor from which there should be a steady flow of water.

 

Can you furnish us with both engine model and serial numbers and perhaps photos of each tell-tale so we can tell which exact motors you have as they do not use yearly designations for identification any more?

 

If you are running these on a flusher muff around the gearcase, one motor may not be getting the correct water flow from the garden hose. You can only troubleshoot cooling system issues with the boat in the water.

 

Did you rig the motors yourself? The factory requires the dealer to initially run the motors, check them out, and to register the warranty by first having both he and you sign the Predelivery Information form stating how the motors were rigged and the tests performed along with an engine printout for the record.

 

Contact your dealer so he can check out your motor if it is determined to be an engine issue.

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.
