Well i have just won a 2011 Evinrude 75 ETEC on ebay and I think I have had it for a steal of a price. It was advertised as spares/repair as although running, it had electrical problems.
The guy worked in a boat yard up in Scotland and this engine came with a hull that he was buying, he said it was too high a HP for him as he was a crab fisherman and the permit was too expensive, so wanted shot of it.
Its not charging the battery at the moment and the engine check light and buzzer is going off, the local dealer has pulled the codes and it says somthing about a 55v circuit is too high. Done a bit of reaseach and i believe this is the EMM board.
It still runs and starts fine in the test tank just it has these electrical issues.
I only paid £1300 for it which i am still amazed how cheap it was, mechanically seems fine with good compression, injectors are all tested/working.
Obviously when its this cheap you suspect stolen, but he was happy to supply the engine numbers and it came with everything and 2 keys plus a history of where he bought it from.
What is the going price for a 2011 ETEC?, must be £4k all day long?
Even if i end up replacing the EMM, i think its a winner, plus this will sit lovely on the back of my Rib! Goodbye to my Merc carb 2 stroke!! :P Hello next gen 2stroke
