Evinrude E-tec 115 G1 2007

Hi.

 

I have an 2007 Etec 115 run 320 hours, my problem started with check enige while running, my service center said it was an sensor for  low voltage that was broken, they change it but next trip out was just the same, i read some posts in here and found out it could the flywheel and stator, and so it was, i was missing 6 magnets and another 5 was starting too come loose or was already in bits, and the flywheel are rusty, right under the flywheel in the engine block there seems too be a small crack? any one seen this before?

From your image, it appears to be paint buildup in a corner that cracked, not the aluminum as I do not notice any signs of leakage..

You should check the rest of the engine over as that rust came from water getting onto the engine. Often it is from a hose leaking or the pressure relief valve leaking. Other times a tranducer or other protrusion on the transom is throwing spray that gets ingested into the motor cover air intake.

Thaks for the quick response, i had i small nedlee and i could stick it in the crack 5mm or so, is this place on the enige some sort of water cooling too the enige? That could explain the rusty flywheel?

 

I have wiped and cleand around the place, thats when i saw the crack. The pressure relife valve seems ok, no water signs around it.

There is no such thing as a replaceable sensor for low voltage. Your findings of the flywheel and magnets is certainly a cause for low System Voltage fault. Extreme water exposure is most likely cause for magnet bond failure. Magnets need to be repaired or flywheel replaced. Find source of water intrusion.
