Owner's Manual

I am having trouble finding the Owner Manual specific for my (1983?) Evinrude Yachtswin 9.9hp longshaft outboard.

Serial #E0194914

Model #E10SELCTC

Any assistance and/or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Hi 

 

You can obtain Johnson and Evinrude service manuals and operators guides from www.outboardbooks.com

***************

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.

Re: Owner's Manual

I emailed them directly as they do not list the Manual for my outboard motor. Fingers crossed, thanks for the help!

Re: Owner's Manual

What kind of oil do you suggest (lower end unit)?
Can I switch to synthetic without changing/modifying anything?

The Evinrude HPF Pro lower unit oil is a semi-synthetic and is the only lube recommended for your E-TEC engine's gearcase.

 

A few years back a magazine tested several brands of gear oils in various types of tests, both with and without water intrusion and the Evinrude HPF Pro was  the only one to consistantly finish each test at or near the top compared to other well-known oils.

Re: Owner's Manual

1983 is not an  E-TEC

 

HPF Pro is the recommended oil for all fully mechanical shift Evinrude and Johnson outboards going back to about 1949 - ones wth F-N-R gears
