Re: Need help identifying this 50 HP

I see some trim units for 60hp and up, would that work?

Your motor is too old for existing trim units

Re: Need help identifying this 50 HP

Been looking at the CMC and Panthers, seems like the CMC can handle up to a 130hp engine, and Will have to move my steering column back to make up for the off set, instead of buying an old unit that will then have to fix.

Re: Need help identifying this 50 HP

Is there a way to know if the engine is overheating?  Or is there a way to know if the water pump fails while out in the water?  Since it has no water stream?

Re: Need help identifying this 50 HP

there is a temperature switch on the cylinder head that sounds the horn inside the control box when the motor gets too hot.

Re: Need help identifying this 50 HP

Bill, 

 

i bought the 50hp engine, after seeing it start right up, good water flow and gear engaging and running just fine.  No leaks,prop looks good also.  The seller insisted that my remote control unit would work just fine with this motor.  I told him I didn’t think so, but he reassured me he knew these engines very well.  Got home, put power on it, to see if it would start and nothing.  Red cannon plugs fit in to each other, but no juice to starter.  Throttle and gear box cables didn’t work on the engine either.

 

any thoughts?

 

Thanks,

 

Ivan

We cannot fix or troubleshoot your motor as we are not there, but we can advise, recommend, and suggest.

 

The starter electrical system will have to be examined and tested. A factory service manual is your best investment if you are familiar with mechanics, electrics, test equipment, etc. Another option is to have a trained technician check it out for you.

factory manuals are the only complete ones and have illustrations, pictures, and explanations.

Re: Need help identifying this 50 HP

Thank you for the idea.  I found them all online and purchased them all.  At great savings.  I have reached out to a technician, to troubleshoot.  I called the seller Andy he had no problems starting the 15 hp eng I traded him.
