I do tend to go 'overboard' when fixing things.  If it might be bad, replace it, if I can afford it.  [crazy]

Yes I tend to agree with you Phil. I think I'm going to keep mine in the lake from now on.
The only reason I put the flush muffs on was to stabilize my fuel and draw some of that fuel into the the engine. I'll just run it in the lake and winterize it there as well.

Most likely a Good Idea.  There are a few things (like Revving) that shouldn't ever be done on shore.  I did winterize on muffs before doing the WP, but that's only at about 1,000 rpm's (before I got EV Diag - using the Manual method).  Didn't seem to have any ill effects on the water pump though.  I did my best to make sure that things were 'sealing' as well as I could, pressure not Too High, and then started her up.

All actually looked surprisingly well inside, when I did do the water pump later.  Those rubber fins do tend to take a "set" though.  I thought I had the wrong impeller - How does this thing go in there???  Well, read the instructions!  [rofl]

Good Luck!

Phil

Wow, Ten year warranty, in Oz we only get three. We must be hard on outboards here. Glad you found the fault, I agree it may be more than just using muff.

Hi NQangler,
In this thread http://www.etecownersgroup.com/post/evinrude-australia-3-2-years-warranty-now-available-8380506?pid=1294526252
Please refer to this post (below) by Huey re Warranty. From what I can remember of when you bought your E-TEC you should have got the 5 year warranty. As of March 2016 all new engines (25HP and up) will have the 3 + 2 year warranty program which equals five years but to get it the owner needs to get a service done yearly unlike the 3 year service intervals previously.
Cheers
GEB

As mentioned by Nordmann we have had 5 year factory backed warranty down here on 40HP and up for a fair while now. As of March 2016 all new engines (25HP and up) will have the 3 + 2 year warranty program which equals five years but to get it the owner needs to get a service done yearly unlike the 3 year service intervals previously. The longest warranty down here is by Honda at 7 years but the fine print is long and exhaustive on that brand. Pretty much everyone is 5 years, except Yamaha at 4 years and all brands need to be serviced yearly now.

The 10 year warranty on offer in the US today for you guys up there is very impressive no matter which way you want to dissect it.

The 10 year warranty was a 3 + 7 1000 hour promotion Dec 16, 2016 thru March 2017 on G1 engines. It helped our sales some but most people don't repower until they have to.
We have had no problems with BRP covering water pumps under warranty in the US, especially on the 25/30's. Our shop, like most others, always have a back log of work, we range from 2 to 6 weeks. However, I always give priority to ETEC warranty work and the recently purchased engines get the highest priority. 25/30 water pumps are always done in less than 2 days.

Apparently my outboard was purchased from a wholesale dealer that only gives three years not five like other wholesalers. My loss, no worries I still like the engine, just don't like being dudded.

Hi NQ,
Not that I know anything special but as far as I’m aware it is Evinrude in Australia, who provides the Warranty, not the dealer. You only have to look here at Telwater’s website to confirm that. IMO something not right with you’re being told by the Dealer and suggest you contact Evinrude Australia
http://www.evinrude.com.au/OwnersResources/EvinrudeWarranty.aspx
Quote from Evinrude Australia

“Evinrude now offers an Australia wide additional 2 years factory backed warranty on top of your existing 3 year Evinrude warranty.

This provides the end consumer with a total of 5 years factory backed warranty on the complete range of outboard motors. (Excludes commercial.)

The additional two years of warranty give the same comprehensive warranty coverage as Evinrude’s standard 3 year manufacturer’s warranty (including labour) for failures caused by defect in material or factory
workmanship. The 2 year warranty extension will terminate upon failure to meet any of the Warranty Conditions.”

Cheers
GEB

I have zero idea on what you mean a wholesale dealer. Simple fact all outboard dealers of any brand by from the manufacturer or distrubutors and then sell to the public-no such thing as a wholesale dealer and i will say again, down here ALL G1 and G2 Evinrude E-TEC engines get 5 year warranty.

If you want to discuss warranty further please start another thread because this one has got off track.
