Warranty

I am considering buying twin 150hp etecs that are new in the box. Do they have to be rigged by an authorized dealer to retain the warrenty?  The motors are 2015 Model # E150DPXAB Serial # 05449144,Model # E150DCXAB Serial # 05443703.

Re: Warranty

A dealer will have to get engine reports, verify that the rigging is correct and register the engine to get the warranty. You'll have to call to see if a dealer will let you do the rigging.

Re: Warranty

Before engines can be registered for warranty, a pre-delivery form called a PDI form has to be filled out by the dealer and signed both by him and yourself. It documents that the rigging is done per the installation guidelines, the engine has been bled and tested, and an engine report is saved by the dealer. It also says that you were given the operators guide and told how to operate and maintain your motor along with a warranty explanation.

 

You would have to have your dealer's permission to rig the motor yourself, then have him test and inspect the workmanship and parts used, record the information on the PDI form, and download an engine report. Some setup and testing require special tools plus a laptop and the Evinrude diagnostic software.

 

In addition, should you decide to rig it yourself, obtain the latest Pre-Delivery and Installation manual and follow it to the letter.  Warranty does not cover any rigging errors, adjustments, or incorrect parts or assembly.
