Model #: E200DPXSOC Manufacture date: 11/2004 I have owned the outboard since 2011, when I bought it with approximately 400 hours on it. As of this past winter, it now has around 550 hours.

This summer, on the second outing, I noticed that it seemed to be running oddly. On plane at speed, engine speed would slow down, then speed up, in a random way. Idle seemed slightly erratic, compared to what I am used to with this engine. Later, I ran it with the cowing off, on the garden hose. A bad fuel leak was noted at the fuel pump outlet, in the joint between the rubber fuel hose and the "fuel rail" hose material. The rubber hose has an Oetiker clamp on it. I attempted to stop the leak, by applying crimp pressure to the crimp point on the clamp, while the engine was running. It seemed to stop the leak and the idle also seemed to smooth out somewhat.

Yesterday, the engine seemed to run pretty well, though it still seemed not quite right. Today, I pulled the cowling and ran it on the hose again. Everything seemed tight, though I noticed some residue on the fuel filter. I wiped the residue with my finger and smelled it- it smelled like gasoline. I shut down the motor and fiddled with the hose connections by wiggling or slightly flexing them. Oh, yes and I put on my glasses. If I looked real close, I could see fuel seepage on the fuel filter outlet connection. Also, the clamp that I had re-crimped on the fuel pump outlet hose seemed to weeping somewhat as well.

I have never experienced this before with this outboard, or any other that I can think of for that matter. I never run any alcohol fuel, only 87 octane, straight gas. So it sounds like I need to replace some Oetiker clamps.

Are there any tech tips for removing the hoses from the barbs without the usual wrestling match and without damaging the ends of the hose or the barb? Or should I just plan on buying all new hoses and clamps?

I appreciate your input,

Personally, I would replace hoses and clamps. Easier to do it that way and know you won't have to worry about it any time soon.

Just my 2 cents.

++ to Larry.  At that age of motor, and assuming that it's never been done, I'd be going for "all of them" also.

Yep, deep down inside I know that it's time to break down and do the right thing.

For some reason, at shop.evinrude.com, I can't seem to see the hoses that I think I would need. I haven't taken my iPad out to the engine to compare yet, but it seems like most of the hoses are formed hoses that would be Evinrude parts. There is not much room in there to have random loops of hoses hanging around.

Any suggestions on where I can source these hoses?

Doug
