Well if you get the flywheel off you will see what state that's in and the stator.

Its amazing how many problems the fault with mine caused - all because some magnets had fallen off.

Something's not quite right, the hand written report says that the problem is LOW 55v, but the printout says HIGH 55v. The last time that the fault occurred was at 220 hours which, if the timeline is correct, would be after the EMM was changed (if it has been). The EMM should have 4 LEDS, which should all go out in turn with the engine running, if LED 1 is on with the engine running, it would indicate a fault on the 55V side, BUT the engine should be in S.A.F.E. mode. There is a capacitor usually fastened to the trim/tilt relay, make sure the connections to the capacitor are good. If you have the facility to have the capacitor tested, get it done before you spend any money, a knackered capacitor will cause a high 55v fault.

I almost bid against you as I thought it would be perfect for me as I am looking for a nice 75hp.
I hope its good for you.
I walked away from it as I thought it said it had got wet, I thought maybe it has been submerged.
Lots of bargains on ebay at the minute, Just yesterday I watched a 2005 suzuki 75hp 4 stroke go for 1380. What a bargain It was just to heavy for me.

The engineer found a corroded connector so went with the assumption it may have been submerged, but that was speculation.

I get to find out properly tomorrow when i get to give it a good going over, thanks for the info and tips on what to look out for.

Well i thought i would give you an update on my Rib and how i got along fixing this engine, well i can tell you that the electrical fault was fixed

Turned out the plug from the stator has melted and messed up the wiring, the plug was cut off and a replacement fitted and the engine runs sweet as a nut with no faults and to top it off i found out that it still has a year of warranty still on it!

Its on the boat now and I am very happy, just need to take it out for a spin and see how she goes
