Re: E25

Did you clean out salt deposits from someone not flushing the motor as they should, or was it run in the shallows, hitting bottom often and you cleaned out mud and/or sand from the cooling water passages?

The factory recommends that a properly trained technician service your Johnson or Evinrude outboard motor. Should you elect to perform repairs yourself, use caution, common sense, and observe safety procedures in the vicinity of flammable liquids, around moving parts, near high-temperature components, and working with electrical or ignition systems.

The information offered here is only general in nature and should not be construed as complete factory approved procedures, techniques, or specifications. Always use the proper service manual for your motor, up-to-date service literature, the correct tools, and have an understanding of how to proceed with troubleshooting and repair methods. If you are unsure or uncomfortable with a procedure, a situation, or a technique, enlist the services of a factory trained technician.

Your dealer may have not had the experience with 25/30 ETECs to knock w to look for blocked cooling drains. That is one of those se things that is techs learn from experience. I have only had to remove the head to clean passages on 5 of the 200 25/30hp ETECs that we service.
