    '89 90 hp evinrude intermitent non-start

    So I have an '89 evinrude 90hp vro that starts and runs fantastic. Usually fires up in just a few cranks of the starter and runs strong, no skips, stutters, etc. However, every several outings, after having started the motor several times and being run to a few fishing spots it won't start. The...

    Dual Steering cables on boat - single steering cable outboard?

    So I have a boat that I installed a 1985 Evinrude 90 hp on. The problem is, the previous owner had a mercury with dual steering cables and the Evinrude only uses one. Last season I simply used one cable and let the other one rock and roll in the bildge area. I was thinking about removing the...

    I am in the process of hooking up a new-to-me tilt trim unit on my 1985 90 hp Evinrude which did not previously have power tilt/trim. I think I am all set on the relays and wiring up the motor but what I am kind of stumped on is the sending unit. The sending unit has a 2 conductor cable that...

    Adding Trim/Tilt to a 1985 Evinrude 90 hp

    HI all. I am planning on adding a power trim and tilt unit to my 1985 90 hp Evinrude. This motor did not come with trim/tilt originally.

    1985 90hp Evinrude - spark plug metal shavings

    Re: 1985 90hp Evinrude - spark plug metal shavings This is the most in focus I could get. They seem to be fairly large - maybe 1/16th to 1/8th in size, silver and slightly curled. There is a whole crap load of them. They seem to be on the outside, thought the spark plug thread was kind of...

    just got a used 1985 90hp evinrude vro. A closer inspection turned up metal shavings (likely aluminum) around the outside of two of the spark plugs from the upper cylinders. haven't fired up the motor yet and likely won't until this is solved. No shavings around the lower two cylinders. Is this...
