Starter Stud Lock Washer & Starter Bolts Loctite ?

[ Edited ]

I’m replacing starter & solenoid on my 2007 E-TEC- 115HP.

 

Manual mentions a lock washer on starter post, but when I remover the Pos Cable, there was no washers under the nut. 

The post nut and wire lug were coated with the black neoprene dip (so I’m thinking maybe original starter motor?)

You folks using a lock washer on the pos post stud ?

 

Also, manual mentions using “nut lock” on starter bolt threads.  (torque 168 to 192 in. lbs)

So, are ye using Blue Loctite 242, 243 or 246 ?

 

242 – Medium Strength

243 - Medium Strength, High Temperature

246 - Medium Strength, High Temperature, Oil Tolerant

 

Thanks, vinny.

I can see where the manual calls for a washer, however it's not apparent on the parts list for this or any newer 115. From which one could conclude there is no washer.

 

Make sure to replace cable solenoid/starter with cable 0587027. This is a longer cable routed around the back of engine, behind EMM. The old short one is under the EMM, and could cause interference with EMM due to RF.

 

We have been using medium strength locktite for this operation.

Interesting about that cable, thanks, I’ve ordered them. 

One of the lads in my Evinrude shop has not heard of this issue.

Is there a technical bulletin you can direct me to? He could not find that for my serial numbers.

Yeah, thanks, so I will pass that along to my E-dealer.

Now that you have opened up this can of worms in my head, how does one acquire Service info like this back to 2007 ?

These publications were distributed to the dealers back then. Available currently on Bossweb.

So, I did buy the upgraded Starter Cables. 

My E-dealer still couldn’t find anything related to my serial #s for this cable.

I’m not sure they looked at a 2009 publication. 

If you come across a publication number, I would like to see where around the back of the motor they suggest the new cable be routed.

 

Thanks

Tell your dealer to check his Bossweb, not serial, for the product guide. Use page number already posted.

As stated by Nordmann  tell your dealer to use Bossweb. Go to knowledge center - doucuments & articales, type in 2009 product update & he should find it.
