We have selected this motor to fulfill this horsepower range. Throughout the years this has been a very reliable unit which is why we have decided to remanufacture and offer it to you.
In this case we have found the earlier models of these outboards to be much more reliable than the newer models. It has been our experience that from 1989 and up, the lower units and the manual tilts have been very problematic in the 40-50 hp Evinrude and Johnson outboards. We have found that the few failures with this class of outboard are due to fuel contamination or oil injection failure. As with all Evinrude outboards we re-build, we have removed the oil injection. Fuel contamination can be prevented by installing a Racor fuel filter and checking it regularly.
Benefits: You can expect lower fuel consumption with this outboard. It is also relatively light weight (191 lbs). Despite it's smaller size it still has enough power to push some 17 ft boats effectively.
All our remanufactured outboards come with new decals, a new cover gasket, stainless steel tilt tube, and our 7 part paint system.
