  • 1977 85Hp Evinrude Set for 6 years. What to do before trying to start.

    I have a 1977 85 Hp Evinrude. I took the grand kids out about 6 years ago and have not started it since. It has set in the yard and the sun dry rotted out the gas hose and connection. The steering cable is stiff but works and the throttle mechanism works by hand.. That being said what are a list of things I should do before trying to start. Like carburetor, gas filter,gas pump, plugs, water pump, fogging the cylinders. Should I add anything to gas like Stabuilt or Seafoam Carburetor cleaner?. Is there a Evinrude service manual?

          Don't sound so good. Depends if any storage prep was done.

          Empty any old fuel and start fresh. I wouldn't add anything other than maybe some Dri-gas.
