New (used) G2s, a couple of questions for the experts

I just sold my old boat with a single G2 300 and bought a boart with twin 300 G2. It flies! 


Engines are from 2015, serial # 05429704 #05420292.


Question 1: Can i tilt the motors individually? The seller told me I can´t but that seems strange. There is a tie-bar between them.


Question 2: One of the tilt motors sounds "off" (it was recently fixed). It tilts up and down but sounds "weak" and makes a small "drop" between tilt and trim. Normal? Whart can i do about it?


Querstion 3: RPM Sync works great however there is usually a 2-400 RPM difference (and about 10% in fuel consumption) the throttle % does not read the same on both engines even when synced. Normal? 


Question 4: Even with the master tilt switch the engines do not perfectly sync tilt. Normal? I.e. when planing there will be a small difference in tilt between engines.


Question 5: Steering is quite a bit heavier than for my previous single G2 installation. Normal?


Question 6: There are two fuel/water separators externally part #502905. Is there a see through replacement? I like to be certain nothing is wrong before i go on a longer trip Smiley Happy


Other than these small things these engines are greatSmiley Happy

The tie bars have enough swivel on the end to allow one engine to tilt up. Sounds like you may have air in your tilt system making noise, the slight drop, and the engines not trimming the same with the master switch. Both engines have to be trimmed fully down so they both start at the same place for the master switch to have them trim equally. I have not installed but one set of twins G2's but their sync rpm was the same. May need a dealer to calibrate the throttles.

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.

My suggestion above about calibrating throttles was incorrect since the sync button switches to the left throttle lever only.
