Again thanks to all of you.
I've used the Delphi filter, the primer bulb and the transducer for almost a year now with no problems. And last week the problem suddenly started.

@quinquarimarine: There is fitted the Delphi HDF296. On a website it says: "The HDF296 has a micron rating of 6-9 microns and a flow rate of 45 L/hr."
That's not enough, but how come this problem didn't show up before?

Maybe it is a cumulative problem and the combination of the restriction you already had and something else is causing enough of a restriction to kill the motor?

Today I've put in a Quicksilver filter/seperator with a flow of more than 100 liters/hour. Also new 10 mm fuel pipes and a new primer bulb. The engine runs better and smoother. I still have to test her on the water at WOT but I 'll do that with a second boat, to accompany me.
I'll keep you informed.

An additional question:
Error code 57 (engine check: fuelproblem) cuts out the engine completely. Is there a way to reset the engine without a pc? It would be handy at open sea.

M

Sounds like problem was filter and yes could have been cumalitive or a change in parameters on the engine thus drawing more juice ( old plugs/injector etc etc).

My ref to the fuel transducer may need a bit more explanation. It can work for some time with no problem but the slightest bit of muck will stop it dead. This the reason that it must be fitted after the filter. Muck can still arrive there from for instance changing filter or a break down in the fuel hose. This transducer is not just peculiar to Evinrude - some others use the same assembly. In fairness it seems to be a rare event but one that we were not happy with on boats that we supply.

From memory this is not a hard code and thus the code will "clear" when the problem is cleared ie. when adequate fuel flow/pressure is achieved. Turn ignition off ,prime system with bulb, turn ignition on and leave on for say 20 secs for fuel pump to prime and then start. Check engine will only show if problem remains. Code will remain on the system as a storred code and can later be cleared by Evinrude engineer with either PDA or computer.

Cheers

John

Thanks John for the explanation. When code 57 occured the fuel pump did not run at all. There was no reaction at all by turning the key and the second light (engine check) stayed on.

Mark.

What kind of fueltank do you use in the boat? SS or GRP?

@Danny: it's a GPR tank.

Today I went out for a trial and everything was OK. WOT at 5800 to 5900 RPM. All summer I only reached 5400 RPM. Taking full speed corners, so the engine had to work hard, was no problem.
Thanks every one for the input and advise.
