Etec G2 300hp operating parameters and manual

[ Edited ]
Spoiler
 

Hello I just purchased me Etec G2 300hp and need
operating parameter manual.
I also called Evenrude customer
service number.They told me to
contact my dealer and acquire from
them. So I contacted dealer and they
told me to contact Evinrude.
When I told the dealer what your customer
Service department told me they told
Me to contact Evinrude Nation and
Maybe they could provide.
I made a large investment with Evinrude.
It should not be this difficult to acquire
the information I am looking for. It should
have been supplied with engine.
Where can I get engine operating parameter
information that shows normal engine
temperature in idle and higher speeds? Normal
Oil pressure? What is normal generators
amp output min/max for batteries? Is there a
complete manual with this information I can buy
or acquire?
Thank you
Ray Mcleod

One nice thing about this E-NATION website is that you do not have to repeatedly ask the same question here.

 

We have replied to your query already in one of your other identical posts.

Re: Etec G2 300hp operating parameters and manual

Hello blue water bill,
I just signed up with Evinrude Nation for the first time yesterday. There were several forums available. So being new I put in an ad in the each of the forums, to first introduce myself to everyone at Evinrude nation, which had a brief description of my brand new Evinrude Etec G2 engine, my brand new Andros Boat, and finally information on a newly designed lifting device for me since I'm in a wheelchair. I thought mentioning that would be a very important topic to pass on to Evinrude nation for all the people who are disabled, or all the people who have family members that are disabled could get out on the water like I have done and live life to the fullest. Maybe buy a boat and an Evinrude engine and have fun. I also added another post on not having an owners manual that provides the operating parameters of my new engine such as normal operating temperature of engine at idle, or at normal cruise speed. There should be temperature ranges min/max that you do not want to exceed. Normal oil pressure range, normal amps range for batteries, and all other pertenant data pertaining to my engine. I did receive an Evinrude operating guide but it does not have this information as you stated it did in your reply. There is a lot more to know about this engine then what's in the operating guide. I believe I need the complete owners/maintence manual. In my life I spent 22 years as an air traffic controller, I have flown airplanes, and I have race cars. It is important weather in a car, a plane, or a boat to pay close attention to engine data. Some rely on computers to do everything but I'm old school and prefer reading instruments and making the right choices.
In regards to your reply, bluewater bill, my boat was built by Andros Boats in Sarasota Fl., they are very good partners with envirude, and the engine was installed by an authorized personnel, and yes I did receive an owners guide.
So if anyone out there has the information I am looking for I would greatly appreciate input.

Hello Everyone, I just took delivery on my brand new Andros Tarpon 26ft Fishing Boat with my new ETEC G2 300hp engine. Andros Boat also fitted my boat with a wheelchair Lifting Device to get me in/out of boat. Very cool. I Attached a video clip on other forum sites. Looking forward to doing some serious fishing in and around the Pensacola Fl. pass.

I guess I did not fully understand your initial questions, forgive me.

 

See your dealer to order the complete factory service manual as it contains the technical and repair information.

 

As a former pilot and boat racer I understand the need to know the condition and operation of the engine at all times. Be aware that the engine computer, EMM, controls the operation of the engine and that some parameters are not adjustable or able to be modified  - engine idle speed is one such item.

 

If you have additional questions in the future, please post them one time in the OWNER ZONE forum. We welcome you as a member of the Evinrude family and look forward to reading more about your unique approach to boating. I am sure that you will empower others in your situation. Thank you for joining us here at E-NATION.

Hello Bluewater Bill, I will try to only respond in Owners forums in future.

Thank you for your reply but to confirm I have no wishes to change any of the engine parameters. When I read the I-command 3.5color display and it shows engine temperature. I need to know if that temperature is normal for idle mode or if I am running engine at 4500-5000 rpm what are the temperature ranges that engine should fall into. A good operating temperature and what is minimum or maximum range. What temperature would reflect that I am getting close to over heating my engine. I know computers will shut my engine down before damage should occur but I want to know temperture parameters before computer shut engine down. Same with oil pressure min/max pressure, and engine generator amp min/max ranges so i can know I might have a problem before computer shutdown. That's the type Information I am trying to acquire. Need all the help I can get to be a good and safe boater. Ray

Here are the specs that you requested. I hope these are what you are looking for as they are taken from the factory service manual.

 

 

@ 70°F  inlet water temperature average - warmer waters may result in higher engine temperature readings

 

Typical temperature displays at IDLE speed
should be 140°F ± 10°F (60°C ± 6°C)


Typical temperature displays at WOT speed
should be 150°F ± 10°F (66°C ± 6°C)


Operating temperature must not exceed 203°F
(95°C).

 

Maximum alternator battery charging  is 50 amps (2000 rpm and above) unless the auxiliary isolator kit is installed then both independent circuits would have a max output of 25 amps.  Idle charging is 10 amps.

 

There are no oil pressure specs for a 2-stroke oil-injected engine

That's very good information. I thank you for taking the time and effort to get this information to me. I think I will order the factory service manual if I can get that from my dealer.

Re: Etec G2 300hp operating parameters and manual

hi . I was just wondering....... did you ever get a hold of the factory service manual for your G2.? I own a 2016 225hp G2 and I have not been able to attain one. The Dealer was no help and the operators manual that comes with the Motor is very sparce.  

 

Thanks,

Steve
