I'm having a hard time finding a reman powerhead for a 2005 Evinrude 225. Does anybody know a reliable machine shop that can rebuild the powerhead. I've talked to a few that rebuild outboards. Does anyone on here have any first hand experience with anybody? How long should it take to have the work done? Thanks

All of your questions need to be answered by a dealership or machine shop. What part of the country are you in?

I live in N.C. unfortunately there are very few dealers and machine shops that work on Evinrude outboards. But I can deliver the powerhead.

Contact any Evinrude dealer.  The powerhead you are looking for is Evinrude 765508 and the factory currently has 4 in stock at Beloit, Wisconsin.  This is a re manufactured powerhead.

If you don't want a top of the line E-TEC rebuild by Evinrude's contract rebuilder who does all their warranty E-TEC powerheads try>

Chris is Top Gun in the outboard hi pro racing and rebuild industry.  Not the fastest because of heavy work load.  Have him put in a set of his non metallic reeds during the rebuild.  His reeds won't take out a piston if they break and go into cylinder.

Are your block/crank rebuild-able?  Rebuilder will not pay core charge if not, not worth shipping if toasted block/crank

He'll even install on your mid and lower if you ship him the whole unit.  I would have his shop techs go through your lower at same time, replace any worn damaged parts and the carrier anode which needs replacing after years in salt.  Can have him do the adapter plate HD upgrade also and cooling upgrade mods at same 

Plan on a truck shipment both ways, his shop is in the keys, bucu long drive from NC.  Visited his shop years ago when I was crazy into racing OBs

Do your due diligence when selecting a rebuild shop.  Lots of garbage machinists and rip off wallet rapers out there.  One shop in PA that is notorious, goes by name of a dark colored bird.  Also operates out of Fl and possibley NC and anywhere else he can set up for a few months and scalp outboard owners. Heavy on ebay advertising. 

Have your injectors cleaned/tested by a professional shop, don't want to melt a piston/cylinder from lean dirt/corrosion plugged injector.  Search the forum, several listed.  If the motor failed due to a melted piston, replace that injector, 14 years old and many upgrades improvements since OEM factory.  Would be far better return on rebuild investment to replace all 6 injectors and protect the $5000 you're going to have invested.

Thanks for everyone's help. I'm not very versed in powerheads that's why I'm asking so many questions. I'l give Chris a call.

Ok here's what I ended up doing. I had all my injectors on both engines cleaned and checked. I drained the oil and cleaned out the tanks replaced the oil with new oil. I took my block to a machine shop about a hour away that bores outboards routinely and my mechanic rebuilt the engine with new genuine Evinrude parts. The mechanic reset the computer to break in mode and I've been running the engine. I've put to 6 to 7 hours on the engine and it couldn't run any better. Thanks for everyone's help.

For future reference for all E-TEC owners.

Which injector shop did you use?  Quality of work and customer service?

I used a local guy here in Morehead City, NC. My mechanic told me he was good. The name of his company is the Injector Inspector.

Could well be another Excellent injector service!  I'm just asking the question though - Did he "run them" on 55V to clean, or just did the service of screens, etc?

Not knocking or questioning the "ability", but wondering if you know what he actually did.  Did you get Flow test charts Before and After cleaning?  Cost per injector?


As Steelhead mentioned - ETEC owners like to know who's the best, and it'll surely help his "rep" to be mentioned on here as being both thorough and fast.

Happy boating,

Phil

I don't have the paper work in front of me but I don't remember them giving me the flow numbers before they were cleaned. Maybe after they were cleaned. They changed the filters because they showed me a bag of parts.  The price was about 850 but I can't remember if that included parts until I look back at my paper work.
