G1 motors, iron liner in aluminum block bore.

 

G2 motors, Plasma hot spray of aluminum block bore with special procedure to prep the alum bore walls.  Coating metal used and exact procedure not released by BRP.

Check with the factory for honing procedure. 

 

Nikasil is a cold chemicals solution electroplating procedure.

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

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.
