Etec repower

Looking at a 2005 225Ho etec with 530 hours. Has had emm and an injector replaced. 67% hours under 2000 rpm. Comes with oil tank, controls and ss prop. Looking to replace an 05 carb yama on my 25 ft bennington tritoon. Any advice on this motor or what to look for?

The best advice we can offer is to have you enlist the services of an E-TEC trained technician to check over the whole motor for you before money changes hands. It is already 14 years old and may be due for complete servicing and any for any updates that may be required.

Ask for a printout of the engine report and be sure your old boat has clean fuel system and an electrical system and battery in good condition.

That 14 year old line got me.. So i passed on it.

Good motor, but still have it checked over by a tech before purchasing and get a printout report.

Re: Etec repower

Well after talking to seller he admitted it had the power head replaced at 10 hours and multiple sensors since then and a lower unit. Said he was tired of the 100 mile trip to the dealer.   Sounds like the engine was a dud or he really mistreated it. 

 

Im getting discouraged on re powering my boat. 

 

Thanks for your input though!

[ Edited ]

The model number designates the 225 as an HO version which has the enhanced tuning over the regular 225.

As with anything used, have an E-TEC trained technician give the motor a complete checkover first and look for any updates or service bulletins that might apply plus give you an estimate of any service needed before you buy it.

 

A replacement EMM gets loaded with the motor's previous engine history and time in service.

Re: Etec repower

Is the year wrong. I can't find this model on charts with 2005 designation. This is an etec right?

Re: Etec repower

I bòught the motor.  Now I need a prop. It's on a bennington 25ft tritoon.  I enjoy pulling a tube or two and a skier I also like to go fast. Is there a prop that will do it all.   I think it has the lighting lower unit.  Is that bad or good.
