Just because 89 people haven't posted problems on a public forum, it doesn't mean they haven't suffered any.

I reckon Chris wouldn't make it known if his e-tec started to become troublesome?

Oi! belt-up.

The reason Opti's are so noisy is to cover-up the knocking and banging.

I think any problems I had have been covered on here....

Most of the problems were with my old 115 however this was down to bad rigging by a certain bunch of cowboys in Exeter. Once I got my head round the fact they were full of BS and found Race Marine in Taunton my problems were solved.

It comes back to that problem that the engine will only perform well if it is set up right to start off with.

I have had a set of top engine mounts on my new 150 because 1 of them had delaminated from the metal tube however I would not say this is a common problem and these type of mounts are common in Evinrudes going back 20 years.

Wow you really do know how to flog a dead horse don't you, poochy

It was a gradual thing that mainly happened in the first 20 hours, however I doubt the NYD '09 race did much to help.
