    Re: E-Tec, Optimax, 4 Stroke? Looking at 115hp range

    Spot on Noel these rod bolts are one time use so i will order some new ones, i still don't know the extent of the damage to the other cylinders the spray of metal pieces may have gone thru the exhaust into the other cylinders so i will see when i tear her a part big problem about tearing a part now is we want to move house so i don't want to be losing bits and pieces of the engine if i move between the time of pulling her apart and reassembling, the only worry about pulling it apart also is i wont know where all the hoses go most are pre bent and just slightly different in sizes to each other but a lot of the same size hose has multiple joints

    i may just need a big tub to chuck it all in

    For a one off job, it's far better to try to keep pieces together in groups rather than just one pile of bits, also keep stuff as assembled as possible, and rebuild as you reassemble it, take lots of photos and mark odd bits with dabs of paint or similar.

    Re: E-Tec, Optimax, 4 Stroke? Looking at 115hp range

    I have 2x 1.8m benches in the shed i use when I'm rebuilding engines but i have been really slack of late and the benches have just cluttered with all tools and bits and pieces of crap its just a real mess so if i strip the Etec i need somewhere to put everything, the Etec is pretty basic just a big block with a few fiddley objects the rest is all hoses it has a mile of them

    forgot to reply to your previous question Noel, The block doesn't feel dry but there is some oil just no where near the amount of an old 2 stroke its kind of hard to get pictures with the scope because it reflects light off of what oil film is there the samsung works better tho but i would say there is oil in there its just a very thin film

    I just went outside for a look and to measure the lift ring bolt hole 8mm bolt lifts a 184kg engine i donno about that... i looked at mostly the hoses i will start to tear the engine down over the weekend i have a couple boxes of those big lunch ziplock plastic bags i will label it as it comes off, a worry will be if the 4 oil injection hoses get miss labelled or i lose the labels... i will try to take it off in bulk and keep as much of the electricals plugged together

    stay tuned for some pictures

    Do you have a genuine repair manual for reassembly? might be a good investment.

    Some of the etecs use a 3 bolt lifter. Yours may be one.

    That is why i wanted the E-Tec because of great fuel economy i will be trolling and downrigging a lot so every drop of fuel saved counts

    The 130 E-Tec has i think 5 studs in the flywheel and one 5/16th 24 fine pitch thread for the lift ring, i don't know if i want to jerry rig a lift ring or try lift it off if my cousin can give a hand

    was a toss up between Yamaha and Mercury and have decided to go Mercury, the 2.1l displacement and command thrust gear box got it over the line

    Re: E-Tec, Optimax, 4 Stroke? Looking at 115hp range

    Getting there just need to remove the computer and flywheel plus the wire harness than the block can come off, i need a special male star bit to undo the reeds so can't look in there just yet, there were sand deposits on the top port piston so i suspect it had a blown head gasket i can't explain any other reason how it go in there

    port head has been taking off after the pictures, was cutting a cable tie off with scissors and snipped a nice chunk of my finger off with it blood going everywhere i stopped shortly after

    kept all my fuel injectors on the rail and with the fuel pump attached seems Evinrude use a special method of shrinking the hoses some how without using clamps so i thought it were best to leave as much stuff together in bulk and just undo it all and take it off in a few pieces

    Mate I know you said moneyís tight but how much per week would you say you have outlaid per week so far

    Cause a 420 renegade with a 50hp four stroke ally trailer and some fitout is only setting me back $125 per week

    Itís new and it works and would 90 percent of the type of fishing you want to do
