Step-by-step repair instructions
Each Eninrude repair manual contains detailed information telling how the motor should be fixed. It contains part removal, disassembly, cleaning, assembly and reinstallation procedures. Pictures, electrical schematic diagrams and illustrated part breakdowns are included in the manual to help the mechanic complete the repair job successfully.
Electronic component testing
Sometimes parts need to be electronically tested to measure or check the quality, reliability or performance of a component of a outboard motor. Evinrude repair manuals teach you how to properly test electrical and mechanical components so as to determine a problem and its corrective action.
Troubleshooting is a problem solving strategy used to trace and correct faults in the outboard’s mechanical or electrical system. It will help identify why an outboard engine will not start, what’s causing the motor to idle rough or stall, what’s preventing the engine from accelerating normally, and much more. The troubleshooting section is especially helpful to people who need to fix their outboard fast.
You cannot properly fix a motor without knowing the specifications to which it operates on. Factory specifications are detailed descriptions of the motor’s design and materials used to make it. Specifications can include general component specifications (propeller information, lubrication and sealant types, etc.) and torque specifications. Never attempt to service an Evinrude motor without a repair manual handy.
Electrical wiring diagrams
Electrical wiring diagrams are a simplified drawing showing the inner workings or a schematic representation. They are critical for understanding how electricity makes a component operate. Wiring diagrams show the wire colors of specific parts; e.g. stop switch, stator, starter switch, alternator, engine control module, etc.
