I'm using the XD 100 oil (and the engine programmed for XD 100) and i no longer have that problem any more. With XD 50 i had that problem.

Paul
Seaharrier I am not shure what oil the engines are running on or what the engines are programmed for. Im not sure the owner of the boat will actually, but i will ask him and suggest that to him.

Hiya,

we got the spark plugs changed after 200 hours

(a bit like the gArfish's yearly bath..whether needed or not!)

We travelled the rivers Ile & Vilaine in Brittany doing the regulation 5 knots (@160 miles!!!) and she hardly coughed when we got through to the Southerly Brittany seas!!!

As for the oil, we use XD 100.

E_TEC rule..

He There,

I also own an E-TEC 200 mounted on the transom of a Tornado 6.3meter.
E-TEC is doing amazing. Although It's up for service now, as it does not start that smooth currently.

Never had anyproblems with it at all

Sound is really smooth, but cool, and has enormous torque!

regards, Mervyn

@Mervyn: surprised to see me here?
Use right kind of sparkplugs and index them. I had a look around:

I've got a 2004 Evinrude 225 HO and was trying to figure out how to properly index the the spark plugs. I went to a web site (http://www.boatsetup.com/PlgIndexing.html) where they discribed the process, and they mentioned orienting the plug electrode in relationship with a pin on the cylinder head. My engine does not have a pin. Is indexing the plugs necessary on this engine?
John from Illinois


and the answer:

The process is basically the same, 'cept line it up to the fuel injectors.
John


and this one:

All Evinrudes need the plugs indexed. You align the open gap ideally to the center of the injector (never the pin) but you have an allowance of 90 degrees on either side of the injector centerline.
