# E-tec 115 worse motor i have ever owner,
Assume you mean ever owned.
# can not hold a merc's fuel line
Do you mean another brands part dosen't fit? The same as trying to fit Ford parts on a Toyota!
# be aware many issues.
Please elaborate on issues you have. You may get an answer to your problems here. Include model and serial number.
# check crappy e- tec 115 in the pontoon area
In the pontoon area there seem to be 2 x 115s mentioned. One with propeller problem and the other got a new power-
head and never reported back. 1st post was this year, the 2nd in 2018.
I cannot see any reason why one would go to the trouble to make posts like that.

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.
