The "stationary" report is attached. I have not collected running engine data yet.

No, if I look at my 09 September 2013, 17:24 post there is an attached file: 30 april visible. If I click it, I can see my report: in PDF.
Here's the link directly to the file

Hopefully I will pick up the components tomorrow to make up some Etec diagnostic serial leads. Ended up buying a small bag full of connectors so might have to sell them off at some point.
Armed with that and a borrowed copy of the software I off on Monday/Tuesday to view an Etec 90....
Just hope it is worth the 4hr+ drive, but I'm prepared to walk away if it doesn't smell right!

Bit of an expensive gamble buying 2nd hand no warranty engine but at least I get to see the report which is more than I get on an old school motor.

Hope it fits in the back of my hatchback!

Any Evinrude owners/experts in the Dartford fancy a pint?

Look for EMM max operating temps. The EMM runs hot and is cooled by raw seawater introduced via very small diameter tubes. My REPLACEMENT EMMs never ran above 46 degrees when I owned them. The units they replaced had been run at up to boiling. At 1000 a throw, not something you want to happen...

Thanks these are the tips I need to know!
Just looked at the emm temp on the round Ireland 90 report 170*F nearly the same as the max engine temp at 174*F
Is this good bad or normal ?

Might do a compression check if they let me, heard they should be 120 even.

Just found out there is no control box with it, will my Morse Type33 cable one fit?

Can't help any more than that, I'm afraid. You'd be remiss NOT to do a compression check.

Is there any chance of seeing it running? If so, run it with the laptop connected & ensure that it is charging, you will see "charging current" in the "monitor" page on the software. If the charging current is zero (assuming that there is a battery connected) the charging circuit is fried, walk away. Does it come with any warranty from the broker, even a couple of weeks will allow you to check it out.
