Anode

Hi

i have a E-tec 75 DPGLAFC S/N 05457122 and i have had two great seasons with the engine, the engine is running mainly in freshwater (Lake Malaren in Sweden) so my wondering is, is the anodes mounted from the factory adapted to use in freshwater or saltwater ?? as far as i understand i need anodes made of magnesium for freshwater it is that correct ??

 

And if yes whats the parts number ??

Re: Anode

Evinrude does not manufacture or sell magnesium anodes as they are not needed on their motors. Their anodes are a pure aluminum which protects better than zinc.

Re: Anode

Well that's interesting Bill. Is the pure aluminum anode effective because the motor is an aluminum alloy?

 Yes,you are correct. The aluminum anode is more effective than the zinc versions and they protect the aluminum alloy engine components.
