Re: Second Blown powerhead

I may be wrong but when i bought my Etec and wanted a fuel/water separator outside of engine Evinrude said it would cause a flow restriction.  Hope it helps.

Evinrude did not say that a filter was not to be installed as one is recommended in the rigging manuals and has been in publications and training centers for decades.


It must have been an individual at a dealership who did not have training or knowledge.

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.
