2006 E-TEC 115HP - Telltale question

Took a test ride on a Sea Cat with 2 E-TECs, port telltale came on soon, starboard didn't, owner turned off engine, then restarted, a few seconds later telltale was flowing.


Do you think I'm looking at debris in the path, or a future impeller issue ?

 

Thanks, vinny

The engine blocks have to fill with water first, then it will travel to the EMM and vapor separator assembly, then out the back tell-tale.  Most of those 60° V4 and V6 motors will show water flow within about 30 seconds.  If not, then the water pump and cooling system has to be checked over.

If your engine is an E-TEC 115 hp, it may be a 2007 model as that was the first production year.  The model number will have the letters SU if it is.

Thanks for your response.

Good to know these are new models for that time frame.

I guess like automobiles the new models are in production 6 months into the previous year.

 

E115DPXSCR – S/N; 05210405 – 07/2007

E115DPXSUC – S/N; 05180542 – 10/2006

 

The Sea-Cat is a 1995 Hull, it is unknown when it was repowered, the PO inherited the 115’s 5 years ago when he purchased the boat.

 

I’m considering the purchase of this boat.

E115DPXSCR outboard is a 2008 model year, not a 2007 like the other one, both are good motors but there are parts differences between them. Use the correct model numbers for parts, specs, and servicing.
