Ok so I just received the bill from Injectorman and should have my CLEAN injectors within a week or so. With that said, I have read the manual for installation multiple times and would like to know from anyone out there if there is anything else I should be doing? once everything is torqued and all hoses fitted etc, before starting I would imagian I should cycle the key to fill system,build pressure and look for leaks. Any advice would certainly be appreciated. Thanx again in advance and cant wait to see how she will run again!

You are correct, pump primer bulb, turn key on and let fuel pump run until it stops, then repeat 3 times to bleed air out of injectors.

On the V6 engines, priming a dry fuel system like that usually  takes 5 or 6 tries to get all the air bled out of the injectors and the rest of the fuel system. Be sure to squeeze the primer ball until hard before and continuously while you have the key turned to ON. That will expedite the air purging.

Received fuel injectors and finished installing, just ran boat on water for first time and here are results. Boat still has a slight misfire through most rpm ranges but at this point I am just gonna run her. Gets up on step great!! boat with 80 gal fuel and myself runs wot at 5550 rpm, 38 knt, 21.34 gal/hr, temp 147f, volts 14.31, seems to be right were she almost was at new except the miss. No miss at wot 5550 though. I have completely gone through fuel system at this point.
new: vst,all fuel lines from tank to motor, anti siphon valve, fuel/water separator, motor fuel filter, exhaust nipple, primer bulb, zero air in fuel lines ( did clear hose test ), ran 6 gal tank with triple dose fuel injection clean ( before injector man cleaned them ), always run stabil marine, new lift pump, thermos stats, pressure regulator, plugs and indexted, and probably forgot something else!! motor has 830hrs and she runs great now except slight miss. Ran her for 30min like I stole her today. 

 thanx again to all that chimed in on my questions or just helping with info. This web site has a bunch of top notch home mechanics and certified ones im sure aswell!!! thank you all again

Great news there!

Just FYI - Seahorse, Rick and Oly are all the "real deal".  I'm just "Shade Tree Phil".  [biggrin]  What little I may know is from these experts on here!

I might be checking coils and the plug wires (resistance, any chafing/pin holes and boot fit) for that miss?  Can't imagine that it's now fuel related.

Good luck and Happy Boating!

Phil

plug wires are next on the list to check and replace, will check coil resistance after I look in manuel. I forgot to mention, the motor seemed a little exhaust!! I was thinking all the additives in fuel and possibly just running better and burning out the cylinders?? I did do a can of ev engine tuner one trip before I pulled the injectors. thanx again

Good deal on checking the electrical next.  You're saying a bit "smoky" exhaust?  You may be exactly right - still some "stuff" to clean out.  As long as it's not bothersome now, and getting back to good clean fresh fuel shortly may sort it out.

Also note that "some" faulty coils may test or run OK while they're cool and then start to fail a bit (miss) as they heat up.  Just a thought there to keep in mind if there's still a miss after more running and testing.

That 147 F sounds good at WOT, but also wondering if it gets higher at low speeds?  Not sure the exact temps recommended for your engine, but I believe it should be higher when at idle - maybe 160?

Keep us posted!

Phil

At idle it is 160 or a bit higher, worked out the temp issues last yr, The miss starts right when the temp starts to climb above 100, im just gonna run it for a while and burn up some of this fuel before the ocean season starts. The exhaust smell I have has always been there, since I do troll at lower speeds for long periods of time, but this was a little different. Hard to put it in words, we all know our boats sounds and smells etc, this was just an off exhaust smell that I cant remember. I do want to say that I had my injectors done and returned in the amount of time that Dale said it would be and are completely done the way he said they would be also! Thank you to him and all those who recommend him for this. On the west coast I was told by multiple evenrude shops that cleaning injectors was not possible and only sid they would replace with new! Difference in price was in upwards of 3k! 2400 for new plus install and programming vs 450 with shipping and me doing the install! I pays to know your boat and have a few new friends to lead you down the right path. Thanx again to Dale for his great service and this website and its members.

Have the oil re-circulation valves been checked? You mentioned plugs were new, however most cases I have seen like yours are mostly plug fouling. Champion plugs?

Checking of the 55 volt capacitor may prove beneficial after 11 years.

Plugs are the QC8WEP and no i have not checked the oil recerc valves. Would i find that in the service manual? And no also on the 55v condenser, will also need to check that as well. Thank you for the advice

Page 198 in your service manual. One plastic valve below starter and one below fuel filter. Check by removing one side of valve and try to blow/ suck with the help of a hose. Should be able to blow one way only.
The 2 pressed in brass valves normally don't give any problems. 

Capacitor test page 122.
