There are two companies that do repairs on FICHT  EMM's. Talk to your dealer about them

Re: 2000 150 fitcht

To keep an EPA paper trail since the motor emissions are regulated by the government, normally the dealer sends the old EMM to the factory for an exchange and the old engine history and information is transferred.to the new unit. In certain circumstances, it can be done electronically.

 

If you have questions about your dealer, you may call Evinrude After Sales with the engine serial number at 262-884-5993.

Re: 2000 150 fitcht

Thanks picked the boat up from dealer.I found out that the engine runs fine once started ran it for eight hours straight did not turn it off to see if emm would act up.from idel to wot all ranges under load worked fine,so the only problem with the emm is the start assist so a small shot of fuel in the throttle plates starts the engine every time.so i.m putting a old modle choke soliniod and running the fuel off the lift pump with a push button switch at the helm,i will let you know how that works out ,i just might save 2 grand.

Re: 2000 150 fitcht

Adding fuel from an external source such as a carbureted engine's primer system can cause your direct injected FICHT to rev up uncontollably and possibly blow up. If that happens and internal parts become external parts, people could be injured, or worse.

 

Please do not attempt that course of action.

Re: 2000 150 fitcht

 

i will only use it at cold start i have tested starting with a mix of oil and fuel first,It took less than a teaspoon to get the engine running and that was a small amount in all six,found out a small amount of brake klenn sprayed in just the two center cyl started the engine every time so Im going to spray just the two center cyl with the two lines comeing off the choke solinoid.and i can say that if where talking about things blowing up,you should have been there when the vapor separator blew the top off itself 2 times, when i found the problem in the lift pump ck valve the dealer was wondering how i found it?and the epa should have been there when it shot fuel 10 feet out in the water.You talk about scared.

Re: 2000 150 fitcht

Just ordered a used emm that matches the modle # on my 150 i know i need to load the old coeff.codes. I did the engine reports and for example the # 1 ser#00046001742055 coeff a 38 coeff b 297 coeff c 1289 and so on,with the 07 etech software can i up load these codes to the used emm.I thought i would connect to used one first and pull a report from that emm to get the ser#'s for all the injectors if i need them.or should i go old school and run the engine and watch the plugs and find the ritch and lean cyl and swap injectors around.after all how far off can these injectors flow from one to the other.or as the pro's call them brat's or lazy kid's.by the way i do have a spare block just in case.

Sorry but what you are suggesting is against EPA regulations and because of that, we cannot condone your actions or provide assistance.
