Hello All..newbie here. Forgive me if this has been covered but I recently bought a used Grady White with a 2006 225 Etec on the back. Motor has been great so far but I decided to do some regular maintennance....water pump.....seals...gaskets....spark plugs and filters. It looks like I damaged the water sensor in the fuel filter mounted on the motor and the alarm is going off. One of the filaments was badly bent and I can't seem to repair it.
The part number is 5011074 and I am calling all over the place and it is unavailable and even Evinrude can't tell me where to get one or when they may be available.
Does anyone know where I can get one?
Secondly.....can anyone tell me if I will do any damage by running with the sensor disabled? It is pretty clear that the sensor is damaged and sending a faulty reading.

In my catalogue 2006 225 HP. the part number for housing and filter is 5005953. Available here in Australia. 4 available, then superseded to 5011074.
If the water in ful sensor is disconnected, there should be no warnings or fault codes. However, you will no longer have the said warning to identify water in the canister.
If you have a fault with the sensor disconnected, there is a lead wire shorted to ground or damage to a related component within the EMM.
