Just wondering how those new small Evinrude portable outboards made by Tohatsu have been selling.? Also wondering if there has been any further talk of producing the 9.9/15 hp E-tec outboards I have been told they have
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all.
With the present economy both in the US and worldwide, I doubt that you will see a small 9.9 E-TEC anytime soon.
Evinrude has a 15hp HO E-TEC available but it is designed more as a heavy duty trolling (kicker) motor for multi-species and off-shore fishing boats and it has power trim on it.

The factory recommends that a properly trained technician service your Johnson or Evinrude outboard motor. Should you elect to perform repairs yourself, use caution, common sense, and observe safety procedures in the vicinity of flammable liquids, around moving parts, near high-temperature components, and working with electrical or ignition systems.
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.
