    I forget what the rules for linking to other websites are. I was just going to let everybody with an evinrude motor know that parts diagrams for evinrude motors from years 1968 to current are available at evinrude.com. I just went and looked up the parts I need, it's fairly simple to use. It has an exploded view of all parts, systems, etc. It shows all the prop options for your year of outboard as well as which prop was standard. You just add the items to your list, and you can view and print your list to take to the dealer, or just call them with your part numbers and save gas. Hopefully this is helpful.

    Here is the link. When you get there, click on the part diagram in the lower right of the screen. It will launch a new window for you to look up diagrams.

    Evinrude.com Parts

    It's kind of complicated, so I'll do a short walk through.

    In the first drop down menu, select your product. The choices are things like Evinrude, Johnson, OB accessories, electric, quiet rider, etc.

    In the next box, you can select normal or advanced search. I always used the normal search, it got me right where I wanted. After you do that, click the "Go" button. It's right next to the search drop down menu.

    A box will then pop up that says "search a catalog." You have to select your product again from a drop down menu. Make sure to pick the right one or you won't get where you're trying to. You can get any evinrude engine part by selecting "evinrude." For accessories like throttle controls, OEM fuel tank part numbers, or dash instruments, select accessories. Simple enough. On some years you can see the accessories from within the "Evinrude" search.

    Next a file tree will come up on the left side. Just scroll around until you find your year, then click it. It will open up to more files listing the different horsepower options for that year. Click your engine's horsepower.

    Next a tree listing the model numbers for that year and horsepower will open up. For example, there will be a list for the different models of 30 horse engines made in 2000. Different number depending on if it's tiller steer, remote steer, electric start, pull start, shaft length, four stroke, two stroke, etc. You'll need to know your model number to get the right one. Click your model number.

    Next a tree listing the different parts systems will open up. At this point, go to the box that says "Text to search for" and enter your part description. Spelling counts! If you don't know how to spell the whole word, just put in the first three letters. You'll get more results, so you'll have to click the right result for the correct diagram. For example, if you search for "impeller" it will give you a link to the gearcase diagram for the results. Click the link to the system that contains the part you're looking for. It will open another new window with the diagram.

    Zoom in on the diagram to look for your part, if you know what it looks like. There will be a number by it. Take that number and look for it in the list in the lower part of the window. That will list the part name and part number. You can then click "add to my list" and it forms a shopping list for you, though you can't order factory direct. If you don't know what the part looks like, but know what it's called, you can go straight to the lower list and look for that name, but you might be going through a list of well over 100 parts for any given system.

    Go back to the file tree window and click "View Pick List" in the upper right to view your list. You can then print it or write the stuff down, and do a dealer search, which will open a new window.

    Have fun. It's really not as hard as this makes it sound.

    Maybe I should have a scavenger hunt to see who can come back the fastest with a list of parts I want? LOL. Just to get everyone familiar with it. Maybe save Robert some work. :D

    Thanks very much Aaron. It's sites like this one that make it easier for me. I can't remember all the changes over the years. Some, I've not even seen, just heard of.

    When I can put a diagramed engine to a question, it sure helps. Almost like having a manual for all of them.

    There is another good place that has diagrams for all outboard motors and that is at ishopmarine, go to the list section. By the way, hi to all!

    Is anyone else having problems getting the evinrude page to work? I went to look up (again) the part number on an impeller and it wouldn't load.

    Bob, quick question. I'm getting ready to see if I can get my engine to start in the driveway to see if it's pumping water. It's a 1971 Evinrude 50 horse 20" shaft. I have a large rubbermaid container that I'm going to put the lower unit in for a water supply instead of forcing water into the engine with earmuffs. I'm wondering which place on the lower unit is the inlet for water - there is a small screened area below the cavitation plate, where there are marks from when other owners have put earmuffs on. There is also a pair of openings just above the cavitation plate. The picture attached shows what I'm talking about.

    I'm just wondering which one the water is actually pulled into when sitting still idling on the lake, so I know how far I have to get the lower unit into the water. I really don't want to ruin anything. I'm guessing the one above the cavitation plate is where water is pulled in at idle, and that the one below is where water is forced in when on plane.

    I'm still wondering about that question of which hole the water is sucked in through, but regardless, I know water is getting sucked in. I found a rubbermaid container in the garage that was tall enough to get both vents underwater. At first it wasn't firing at all. I checked a spark plug, and it was getting gas, and then I cranked it with the plug out grounded on the head, and it was sparking. The other plug was sparking too, so I figured it just needed some encouragement. I shot a little starting fluid into each cylinder and it fired up with much enthusiasm, and ran great after that. It was idling a little fast but that was my fault from when I removed the engine. I took care of that, and it ran like a champ! Pretty good for sitting for 10 months.

    It was pumping water on it's own. The little hole on the front was only spritzing at first, but once it warmed up there was a pretty steady flow.

    There was something of concern, though. In the picture in this post, I circled the thing that wraps around the gearbox. When it was running, water was coming out from around that, on both sides of the motor. Is there a seal or something messed up, or is water supposed to come from around there? I don't remember seeing it before, but then I wasn't paying much attention. I was only looking at the pee hole on the front of the lower unit.

    Thanks for the help.

    Aaron

    Water will come out there, nothing to worry about.

    That motor needs a water pump in a bad way, get it in. Sitting for ten yrs is not good. Neither is starting fluid. Use carb cleaner spray if you must.

    10-4 on the carb cleaner spray.

    You must have misread my post. It sat ten months, not ten years. The last time I had it out was November of 2004, then I winterized it. Still go ahead with the replace? Just the impeller, or a whole water pump kit?

    Aaron, yup misread your post.

    Depending on how long before it set up, the water pump was replaced, would determine if you should put in a new one. You could get away with just an impellor. Be sure there's no wear rings in the housing. If there is, replace the whole pump.
    If it were mine, I'd do it.

    The link to the parts diagrams don't work anymore. Does anyone know the new one?
