 Your K suffix engine has a vapor separator from a different supplier which entails a different cooling design for it and the EMM. I believe the operator's guide for the K model explains that.

Re: 2018 ETEC 150 water restrictor questions

So much for having a matching pair. I get that Evinrude does make product changes and enhancements, however when a consumer purchase a pair, they should match.  So based on the above, I am left with the following two issues.

 

1) I need to remove one water restrictor every time I use my boat to flush the engine as it will be in salt water. Since I am in the water, I need to some how remove this restrictor and then attach a hose,  This is not what I was expecting.

 

2). From a basic  ‘look’ perspective, one engine is pissing like a race horse and the other is just sputtering water.

 

bottom line, I’m excited about my new outboards, however not too pleased with the items noted above.  

 

i welcome your comments.

That is a conversation between you and your dealer.

 

Please express your concerns including both engine's serial numbers to brp.care@brp.com

2018 ETEC 150 water restrictor part number

So, as I expected, clumsy hands at the dock trying to flush the motors, I dropped the restrictor and it’s gone. Have searched high and low for the part number so I can buy a few spares.  

 

 

Bluewater, can you assist?  Thank you Jeff.  Btw these motors are awesome except for this water restrictor on one motor situation

Re: 2018 ETEC 150 water restrictor questions

The water restrictor is #0360520 and an o-ring behind it #0360529.
There is a Quick flush adapter kit for the earlier G1's that had a restrictor. Part #775385. As your engine has a very recent restrictor on it, your dealer would need to check with tech help to see if the quick connect it would work.
