I'm new to the boating world as I bought a Pontoon with an Evinrude 30hp 2001 4stroke, Model: E30EL4SI. I can't seem to find a service manual anywhere for this engine as I'm needing to winterize this engine and don't know where to start. I was told Evinrude didn't make a service manual for this engine. Any help would be awesome! Thanks in advance!
Your engine was produced in the year 2000 just before the former Outboard Marine Corporation ( OMC ), the owner of Evinrude at the time, went out of business thus no service manuals were printed.
The motor is a Suzuki 30 HP and you may be able to obtain a manual through a Suzuki outboard dealer. You can find the parts list at www.parts.evinrude.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.
