SERVIC. MANUA. MODELS 50  60 (4-STROKE) 2001 AND NEWER With Serial Numbers United States . . . . . 0T178500 and Above Printed in U.S.A. W2000, Mercury Marine 90-858896 MAY 2000 Notice Throughout this publication, “Dangers”, “Warnings” and “Cautions” (accompanied by the International HAZARD Symbol ) are used to alert the mechanic to special instructions concerning a particular service or operation that may be hazardous if performed incorrectly or carelessly. OBSERVE THEM CAREFULLY! These “Safety Alerts” alone cannot eliminate the hazards that they signal. Strict compliance to these special instructions when performing the service, plus “Common Sense” operation, are major accident prevention measures. DANGER DANGER - Immediate hazards which WILL result in severe personal injury or death. WARNING WARNING -Hazards or unsafe practices which COULD result in severe personal injury or death. CAUTION Hazards or unsafe practices which could result in minor personal injury or product or property damage. Notice to Users of This Manual This service manual has been written and published by the Service Department of Mercury Marine to aid our dealers’ mechanics and company service personnel when servicing the products described herein. It is assumed that these personnel are familiar with the servicing procedures of these products, or like or similar products manufactured and marketed by Mercury Marine, that they have been trained in the recommended servicing procedures of these products which includes the use of mechanics’ common hand tools and the special Mercury Marine or recommended tools from other suppliers. We could not possibly know of and advise the service trade of all conceivable procedures by which a service might be performed and of the possible hazards and/or results of each method. We have not undertaken any such wide evaluation. Therefore, anyone who uses a service procedure and/or tool, which is not recommended by the manufacturer, first must completely satisfy himself that neither his nor the products safety will be endangered by the service procedure selected. All information, illustrations and specifications contained in this manual are based on the latest product information available at the time of publication. As required, revisions to this manual will be sent to all dealers contracted by us to sell and/or service these products. It should be kept in mind, while working on the product, that the electrical system and ignition system are capable of violent and damaging short circuits or severe electrical shocks. When performing any work where electrical terminals could possibly be grounded or touched by the mechanic, the battery cables should be disconnected at the battery. Any time the intake or exhaust openings are exposed during service they should be covered to protect against accidental entrance of foreign material which could enter the cylinders and cause extensive internal damage when the engine is started. 90-858896 MAY 2000 Page i It is important to note, during any maintenance procedure replacement fasteners must have the same measurements and strength as those removed. Numbers on the heads of the metric bolts and on the surfaces of metric nuts indicate their strength. American bolts use radial lines for this purpose, while most American nuts do not have strength markings. Mismatched or incorrect fasteners can result in damage or malfunction, or possibly personal injury. Therefore, fasteners removed should be saved for reuse in the same locations whenever possible. Where the fasteners are not satisfactory for re-use, care should be taken to select a replacement that matches the original. Cleanliness and Care of Outboard Motor A marine power product is a combination of many machined, honed, polished and lapped surfaces with tolerances that are measured in the ten thousands of an inch/mm. When any product component is serviced, care and cleanliness are important. Throughout this manual, it should be understood that proper cleaning, and protection of machined surfaces and friction areas is a part of the repair procedure. This is considered standard shop practice even if not specifically stated. Whenever components are removed for service, they should be retained in order. At the time of installation, they should be installed in the same locations and with the same mating surfaces as when removed. Personnel should not work on or under an outboard which is suspended. Outboards should be attached to work stands, or lowered to ground as soon as possible. We reserve the right to make changes to this manual without prior notification. Refer to dealer service bulletins for other pertinent information concerning the products described in this manual.

This immediate attention by a servicing dealer is necessary once the engine is exposed to the atmosphere to minimize internal corrosion damage to the engine. Storage Preparation The major consideration in preparing your outboard for storage is to protect it from rust, corrosion, and damage caused by freezing of trapped water. The following storage procedures should be followed to prepare your outboard for out-ofseason storage or prolonged storage (two months or longer). CAUTION Never start or run your outboard (even momentarily) without water circulating through the cooling water intake in the gear case to prevent damage to the water pump (running dry) or overheating of the engine. 90-858895 MAY 2000 Page 1B-17 MAINTENANCE Fuel System IMPORTANT: Gasoline containing alcohol (ethanol or methanol) can cause a formation of acid during storage and can damage the fuel system. If the gasoline being use contains alcohol, it is advisable to drain as much of the remaining gasoline as possible from the fuel tank, remote fuel line, and engine fuel system. Fill the fuel system (tank, hoses, fuel pump, and carburetor) with treated (stabilized) fuel to help prevent formation of varnish and gum. Proceed with following instructions. 1. Portable Fuel Tank – Pour the required amount of Quicksilver Gasoline Stabilizer (follow instructions on container) into fuel tank. Tip fuel tank back and forth to mix stabilizer with the fuel. 2. Permanently Installed Fuel Tank – Pour the required amount of Quicksilver Gasoline Stabilizer (follow instructions on container) into a separate container and mix with approximately one quart (one liter) of gasoline. Pour this mixture into fuel tank. 3. Place the outboard in water or connect flushing attachment for circulating cooling water. Run the engine for ten minutes to allow treated fuel to reach the carburetor. Protecting External Outboard Components 1. Lubricate all outboard components listed in the Inspection and Maintenance Schedule. 2. Touch up any paint nicks. 3. Spray Quicksilver Corrosion Guard on external metal surfaces (except corrosion control anodes). Protecting Internal Engine Components 1. Remove the spark plugs and inject a small amount of engine oil inside of each cylinder. 2. Rotate the flywheel manually several times to distribute the oil in the cylinders. Reinstall spark plugs. 3. Change the engine oil. Gear Case 1. Drain and refill the gear case lubricant (refer to maintenance procedure). Positioning Outboard for Storage Store outboard in an upright (vertical) position to allow water to drain out of outboard. CAUTION If outboard is stored tilted up in freezing temperature, trapped cooling water or rain water that may have entered the propeller exhaust outlet in the gear case could freeze and cause damage to the outboard. Battery Storage 1. Follow the battery manufacturer’s instructions for storage and recharging. 2. Remove the battery from the boat and check water level. Recharge if necessary. 3. Store the battery in a cool, dry place. 4. Periodically check the water level and recharge the battery during storage.

Therefore, established horsepower ratings refer to the power that the engine will produce at its rated rpm under a specific combination of weather conditions. Corporations internationally have settled on adoption of I.S.O. (International Standards Organization) engine test standards, as set forth in I.S.O. 3046 standardizing the computation of horsepower from data obtained on the dynamometer, correcting all values to the power that the engine will produce at sea level, at 30% relative humidity at 77° F (25° C) temperature and a barometric pressure of 29.61 inches of mercury. Page 1C-2 90-858896 MAY 2000 GENERAL INFORMATION Summer Conditions of high temperature, low barometric pressure and high humidity all combine to reduce the engine power. This, in turn, is reflected in decreased boat speeds--as much as 2 or 3 miles-per-hour (3 or 5 Km per-hour) in some cases. (Refer to previous chart.) Nothing will regain this speed for the boater, but the coming of cool, dry weather. In pointing out the practical consequences of weather effects, an engine--running on a hot, humid summer day--may encounter a loss of as much as 14% of the horsepower it would produce on a dry, brisk spring or fall day. The horsepower, that any internal combustion engine produces, depends upon the density of the air that it consumes and, in turn, this density is dependent upon the temperature of the air, its barometric pressure and water vapor (or humidity) content. Accompanying this weather-inspired loss of power is a second but more subtle loss. At rigging time in early spring, the engine was equipped with a propeller that allowed the engine to turn within its recommended rpm range at full throttle. With the coming of the summer weather and the consequent drop in available horsepower, this propeller will, in effect, become too large. Consequently, the engine operates at less than its recommended rpm. Due to the horsepower/rpm characteristics of an engine, this will result in further loss of horsepower at the propeller with another decrease in boat speed. This secondary loss, however, can be regained by switching to a smaller pitch propeller that allows the engine to again run at recommended rpm. For boaters to realize optimum engine performance under changing weather conditions, it is essential that the engine have the proper propeller to allow it to operate at or near the top end of the recommended maximum rpm range at wide-open-throttle with a normal boat load. Not only does this allow the engine to develop full power, but equally important is the fact that the engine also will be operating in an rpm range that discourages damaging detonation. This, of course, enhances overall reliability and durability of the engine. Boat WEIGHT DISTRIBUTION 1. Proper positioning of the weight inside the boat (persons and gear) has a significant effect on the boat’s performance, for example: a. Shifting weight to the rear (stern). (1.) Generally increases top speed. (2.) If in excess, can cause the boat to porpoise. (3.) Can make the bow bounce excessively in choppy water. (4.) Will increase the danger of the following - wave splashing into the boat when coming off plane. b. Shifting weight to the front (bow). c. Adjusting tilt pin to achieve best performance and handling. (1.) Improves ease of planing off. (2.) Generally improves rough water ride. (3.) If excessive, can make the boat veer left and right (bow steer). BOTTOM For maximum speed, a boat bottom should be nearly a flat plane where it contacts the water and particularly straight and smooth in fore-and-aft direction. 90-858896 MAY 2000 Page 1C-3 GENERAL INFORMATION 1. Hook: Exists when bottom is concave in fore-and-aft direction when viewed from the side. When boat is planing, “hook” causes more lift on bottom near transom and allows bow to drop, thus greatly increasing wetted surface and reducing boat speed. “Hook” frequently is caused by supporting boat too far ahead of transom while hauling on a trailer or during storage. 2. Rocker: The reverse of hook and much less common. “Rocker” exists if bottom is convex in fore-and-aft direction when viewed from the side, and boat has strong tendency to porpoise. 3. Surface Roughness: Moss, barnacles, etc., on boat or corrosion of outboard’s gear housing increase skin friction and cause speed loss. Clean surfaces when necessary. WATER ABSORPTION It is imperative that all through hull fasteners be coated with a quality marine sealer at time of installation. Water intrusion into the transom core and/or inner hull will result in additional boat weight (reduced boat performance), hull decay and eventual structural failure. CAVITATION Cavitation is caused by water vapor bubbles forming either from a sharp edge or angle on the gear case, from an irregularity in the propeller blade itself or from improper engine installation (too high). These vapor bubbles flow back and collapse when striking the surface of the propeller blade resulting in the erosion of the propeller blade surface. If allowed to continue, eventual blade failure (breakage) will occur. Page 1C-4 90-858896 MAY 2000 GENERAL INFORMATION Engine DETONATION Detonation in a 4-cycle engine resembles the “pinging” heard in an automobile engine. It can be otherwise described as a tin-like “rattling” or “plinking” sound. Detonation is an explosion of an unburned portion of the fuel/air charge after the spark plug has fired. Detonation creates severe shock waves in the engine, and these shock waves often find or create a weakness: The dome of a piston, cylinder head/gasket, piston rings or piston ring lands, piston pin and bearings. A few of the most common causes of detonation in a marine 4-cycle application are as follows: • Over-advanced ignition timing. • Use of low octane gasoline. • Propeller pitch too high (engine rpm below recommended maximum range). • Lean fuel mixture at or near wide-open-throttle. • Spark plugs (heat range too hot - incorrect reach - cross-firing). • Inadequate engine cooling (deteriorated cooling system). • Combustion chamber/piston deposits (result in higher compression ratio). Detonation usually can be prevented if: 1. The engine is correctly set up. 2. Diligent maintenance is applied to combat the detonation causes. 51115 Damaged Piston Resulting from Detonation 90-858896 MAY 2000 Page 1C-5 GENERAL INFORMATION Following Complete Submersion Submerged While Running (Special Instructions) When an engine is submerged while running, the possibility of internal engine damage is greatly increased. If, after engine is recovered and with spark plugs removed, engine fails to turn over freely when turning flywheel, the possibility of internal damage (bent connecting rod and/or bent crankshaft) exists. If this is the case, the powerhead must be disassembled. Salt Water Submersion (Special Instructions) Due to the corrosive effect of salt water on internal engine components, complete disassembly is necessary before any attempt is made to start the engine. Fresh Water Submersion (Special Instructions) 1. Recover engine as quickly as possible. 2. Remove cowling. 3. Flush exterior of outboard with fresh water to remove mud, weeds, etc. DO NOT attempt to start engine if sand has entered powerhead, as powerhead will be severely damaged. Disassemble powerhead if necessary to clean components. 4. Remove spark plugs and get as much water as possible out of powerhead. Most water can be eliminated by placing engine in a horizontal position (with spark plug holes down) and rotating flywheel. 5. Change engine oil and filter as outlined in Section 1B “Changing Engine Oil”. Run outboard for short time and check for presence of water in oil. If water present (milky appearance) drain and refill as previously mentioned. 6. Pour alcohol into carburetor throats (alcohol will absorbed water). Again rotate flywheel. 7. Turn engine over and pour alcohol into spark plug openings and rotate flywheel. 8. Turn engine over (place spark plug openings down) and pour engine oil into throat of carburetors while rotating flywheel to distribute oil throughout crankcase. 9. Again turn engine over and pour approximately one teaspoon of engine oil into each spark plug opening. Again rotate flywheel to distribute oil in cylinders. 10. Remove and clean carburetors and fuel pump assembly. 11. Dry all wiring and electrical components using compressed air. 12. Disassemble the engine starter motor and dry the brush contacts, armature and other corrodible parts. 13. Reinstall spark plugs, carburetors and fuel pump. 14. Attempt to start engine, using a fresh fuel source. If engine starts, it should be run for at least one hour to eliminate any water in engine. 15. If engine fails to start, determine cause (fuel, electrical or mechanical). Engine should be run within 2 hours after recovery of outboard from water, or serious internal damage may occur. If unable to start engine in this period, disassemble engine and clean all parts. Apply oil as soon as possible.

For best all around performance from your outboard/boat combination, select a propeller that allows the engine to operate in the upper half of the recommended full throttle rpm range with the boat normally loaded (refer to Specifications). This rpm range allows for better acceleration while maintaining maximum boat speed. If changing conditions cause the rpm to drop below the recommended range (such as warmer, more humid weather, operation at higher elevations, increased boat load or a dirty boat bottom/gear case) a propeller change or cleaning may be required to maintain performance and ensure the outboard’s durability. Check full-throttle rpm using an accurate tachometer with the engine trimmed out to a balanced- steering condition (steering effort equal in both directions) without causing the propeller to “break loose”. Refer to “Quicksilver Accessory Guide” for a complete list of available propellers. 1. Select a propeller that will allow the engine to operate at or near the top of the recommended full throttle rpm range (listed in “Specifications,” preceding) with a normal load. Maximum engine speed (rpm) for propeller selection exists when boat speed is maximum and trim is minimum for that speed. (High rpm, caused by an excessive trim angle, should not be used in determining correct propeller.) Normally, there is a 150-350 rpm change between propeller pitches. 2. If full throttle operation is below the recommended range, the propeller MUST BE changed to one with a lower pitch to prevent loss of performance and possible engine damage. 3. After initial propeller installation, the following common conditions may require that the propeller be changed to a lower pitch: a. Warmer weather and great humidity will cause an rpm loss. b. Operating in a higher elevation causes an rpm loss. c. Operating with a damaged propeller or a dirty boat bottom or gear housing will cause an rpm loss. d. Operation with an increased load (additional passengers, equipment, pulling skiers, etc.). Page 1C-12 90-858896 MAY 2000 GENERAL INFORMATION Propeller Removal/Installation 3-1/4 In.

Trim outboard through entire trim and tilt range several times to remove any air from the system. The trim system is pressurized and is not externally vented. Power Trim Operation With most boats, operating around the middle of the “trim” range will give satisfactory results. However, to take full advantage of the trimming capability there may be times when you choose to trim your outboard all the way in or out. Along with an improvement in some performance aspects comes a greater responsibility for the operator, and this is being aware of some potential control hazards. The most significant control hazard is a pull or “torque” that can be felt on the steering wheel or tiller handle. This steering torque results from the outboard being trimmed so that the propeller shaft is not parallel to the water surface. WARNING Avoid possible serious injury or death. When the outboard is trimmed in or out beyond a neutral steering condition, a pull on the steering wheel or tiller handle in either direction may result. Failure to keep a continuous firm grip on the steering wheel or tiller handle when this condition exists can result in loss of boat control as the outboard can turn freely. The boat can now “spin out” or go into a very tight maximum turn which, if unexpected, can result in occupants being thrown within the boat or out of the boat. Consider the following lists carefully: TRIMMING IN OR DOWN CAN: 1. Lower the bow. 2. Result in quicker planing off, especially with a heavy load or a stern heavy boat. 3. Generally improve the ride in choppy water. 4. Increase steering torque or pull to the right (with the normal right hand rotation propeller). 5. In excess, lower the bow of some boats to a point where they begin to plow with their bow in the water while on plane. This can result in an unexpected turn in either direction called “bow steering” or “over steering” if any turn is attempted or if a significant wave is encountered. WARNING Avoid possible serious injury or death. Adjust outboard to an intermediate trim position as soon as boat is on plane to avoid possible ejection due to boat spin-out. Do not attempt to turn boat when on plane if outboard is trimmed extremely in or down and there is a pull on the steering wheel or tiller handle. TRIMMING OUT OR UP CAN: 1. Lift the bow higher out of the water. 2. Generally increase top speed. 3. Increase clearance over submerged objects or a shallow bottom. 90-858896 MAY 2000 Page 1C-15 GENERAL INFORMATION 4. Increase steering torque or pull to the left at a normal installation height (with the normal right hand rotation propeller). 5. In excess, cause boat “porpoising” (bouncing) or propeller ventilation. 6. Cause engine overheating if any water intake holes are above the water line. Trim “In” Angle Adjustment Some outboard boats, particularly some bass boats, are built with a greater than normal transom angle which will allow the outboard to be trimmed further “in” or “under”. This greater trim “under” capability is desirable to improve acceleration, reduce the angle and time spent in a bow high boat, altitude during planing off, and in some cases, may be necessary to plane off a boat with aft live wells, given the variety of available propellers and height range of engine installations. However, once on plane, the engine should be trimmed to a more intermediate position to a avoid a bow-down planing condition called “plowing”. Plowing can cause “bow steering” or “over steering” and inefficiently consumes horsepower. In this condition, if attempting a turn or encountering a diagonal, moderate wake, a more abrupt turn than intended may result. In rare circumstances, the owner may decide to limit the trim in. This can be accomplished by repositioning the tilt stop pins into whatever adjustment holes in the transom brackets is desired. WARNING Avoid possible serious injury or death. Adjust outboard to an intermediate trim position as soon as boat is on plane to avoid possible ejection due to boat spin-out. Do not attempt to turn boat when on plane if outboard is trimmed extremely in or down and there is a pull on the steering wheel or tiller handle. If an adjustment is required, purchase a stainless steel tilt pin (P/N 17-49930A1) and insert it through whatever pin hole is desired. The non-stainless steel shipping bolt should not be used in this application other than on a temporary basis. a a-Optional Tilt Pin Trim Tab Adjustment Propeller steering torque will cause your boat to pull in one direction. This steering torque is a normal thing that results from your outboard not being trimmed so the propeller shaft is parallel to the water surface. The trim tab can help to compensate for this steering torque in many cases and can be adjusted within limits to reduce any unequal steering effort. Page 1C-16 90-858896 MAY 2000 GENERAL INFORMATION 90-858896 MAY 2000 Page 1C-17 NOTE: Trim tab adjustment will have little effect reducing steering torque if the outboard is installed with the anti-ventilation plate approximately 2 inches (50mm) or more above the boat bottom. Operate your boat at normal cruising speed, trimmed to desired position. Turn your boat left and right and note the direction the boat turns more easily. If adjustment is necessary, loosen trim tab bolt and make small adjustments at a time. If the boat turns more easily to the left, move the trailing edge of trim tab to the left. If the boat turns more easily to the right move the trailing edge of trim tab to the right. Retighten bolt and retest. a a- Trim Tab Compression Check IMPORTANT: Compression check should be done with throttle in WOT position. 1. Check valve clearance (refer to “Valve Clearance Adjustment” in section 4A), adjust if out of specification. 2. Warm up the engine. 3. Remove all spark plugs. 4. Lubricate threads in cylinder head and on compression gauge. Install compression gauge in spark plug hole. 110 4-Stroke Outboard Oil (92-828000A12) 110 110 a P/N MT26J/MT26J300 b a - Compression Gauge (MT26J - Snap-on) b - Adaptor (MT26J300 - Snap-on) 5. Hold throttle plate at W.O.T.. GENERAL INFORMATION 6. Crank the engine over until the compression reading peaks on the gauge. Record the reading. 7. Check and record compression of each cylinder. The highest and lowest reading recorded should not differ by more than 15% (see example chart below). A reading below 120 psi might indicate a total engine wear problem. Compression Pressure (Minimum) 135 psi (950 Kpa, 9.5 kg/cm2) Example of compression test differences: Maximum (psi) Minimum (psi) 180 162 150 127.5 8. Remove compression gauge. 9. Install spark plugs. NOTE:Compression check is important because an engine with low or uneven compression cannot be tuned successfully to give peak performance. It is essential, therefore, that improper compression be corrected before proceeding with an engine tuneup. Page 1C-18 90-858896 MAY 2000 GENERAL INFORMATION Cylinder Leakage Testing NOTE:Cylinder leakage testing*, along with compression testing, can help the mechanic pinpoint the source of a mechanical failure by gauging the amount of leakage in an engine cylinder. Refer to the manufactures tester instructions for proper testing procedures. * Courtesy of Snap-On-Tools Cylinder Leakage Tester (Snap-On-Tools MT324) NOTE: Spark plug hole is a 12 mm diameter. Use Snap-On Tool MT26-18 adapter with valve core removed. Analysis Due to standard engine tolerances and engine wear, no cylinder will maintain a 0% of leakage. It is important only that cylinders have somewhat consistent reading between them. Differences of 15 to 30% indicate excessive leakage. Larger engines tend to have a larger percentage of cylinder leakage than smaller engines. If excessive leakage is present, first check that the piston is at top dead center of it’s compression stroke. Leakage will naturally occur if the exhaust or intake valve is open. To determine the cause of high percentage leaks, you must locate where the air is escaping from. Listen for air escaping thru the carburetor intake, adjacent spark plug holes, exhaust pipe, crankcase fill plug. Use the following table to aid in locating the source of cylinder leakage: Air Escaping From: Indicates Possible Defective: Carburetor Intake Valve Exhaust System Exhaust Valve Crankcase Fill Plug Piston or Rings Cylinder Head Gasket 90-858896 MAY 2000 Page 1C-19 GENERAL INFORMATION Water Pressure Measurement 1.

Avoid serious injury from airborne particles. Use eye and breathing protection with proper ventilation. PROPELLERS 1. Sand the entire area to be painted with 3M 120 Regalite Polycut or coarse Scotch-Brite, disc or belts. 2. Feather edges of all broken paint edges. Try not to sand through the primer. 3. Clean the surface to be painted using PPG Industries DX330 Wax and Grease Remover or equivalent (Xylene or M.E.K.). 4. If bare metal has been exposed, use Quicksilver’s Light Gray Primer. 5. Allow a minimum of 1 hour dry time and no more than 1 week before applying the finish coat. 6. Apply the finish coat using Quicksilver’s EDP Propeller Black. GEAR HOUSINGS The following procedures should be used in refinishing gear housings. This procedure will provide the most durable paint system available in the field. The materials recommended are of high quality and approximate marine requirements. The following procedure will provide a repaint job that compares with a properly applied factory paint finish. It is recommended that the listed materials be purchased from a local Ditzler Automotive Finish Supply Outlet. The minimum package quantity of each material shown following is sufficient to refinish several gear housings. Procedure: 1. Wash gear housing with a muriatic acid base cleaner to remove any type of marine growth, and rinse with water, if necessary. 2. Wash gear housing with soap and water, then rinse. 3. Sand blistered area with 3M 180 grit sandpaper or P180 Gold Film Disc to remove paint blisters only. Feather edge all broken paint edges. 4. Clean gear housing thoroughly with (DX-330) wax and grease remover. 5. Spot repair surfaces where bare metal is exposed with (DX-503) alodine treatment. IMPORTANT: Do not use any type of aerosol spray paints as the paint will not properly adhere to the surface nor will the coating be sufficiently thick to resist future paint blistering. 6. Mix epoxy chromate primer (DP-40) with equal part catalyst (DP-401) per manufacturers instructions, allowing proper induction period for permeation of the epoxy primer and catalyst. 7. Allow a minimum of one hour drying time and no more than one week before top coating assemblies. 8. Use Ditzler Urethane DU9000 for Mercury Black, DU34334 for Mariner Grey, and DU35466 for Force Charcoal, and DU33414M for Sea Ray White. Catalyze all four colors with Ditzler DU5 catalyst mixed 1:1 ratio. Reduce with solvents per Ditzler label. 90-858896 MAY 2000 Page 1C-21 GENERAL INFORMATION CAUTION Be sure to comply with instructions on the label for ventilation and respirators. Using a spray gun, apply one half to one mil even film thickness. Let dry, flash off for five minutes and apply another even coat of one half to one mil film thickness. This urethane paint will dry to the touch in a matter of hours, but will remain sensitive to scratches and abrasions for a few days. 9. The type of spray gun used will determine the proper reduction ratio of the paint. IMPORTANT: Do not paint sacrificial zinc trim tab or zinc anode. 10. Cut out a cardboard “plug” for trim tab pocket to keep paint off of mating surface to maintain good continuity circuitry between trim tab and gear housing. Decal Application Decal Removal 1. Mark decal location before removal to assure proper alignment of new decal. 2. Carefully soften decal and decal adhesive with a heat gun or heat blower while removing old decal. 3. Clean decal contact area with a 1:1 mixture of isopropyl alcohol and water. 4. Thoroughly dry decal contact area and check for a completely cleaned surface. Instructions for “Wet” Application NOTE: The following decal installation instructions are provided for a “Wet” installation. All decals should be applied wet. TOOLS REQUIRED 1. Plastic Squeegee* 2. Stick Pin 3. Dish Washing Liquid/Detergent without ammonia** “Joy” and “Drift” are known to be compatible for this process. * Automotive Body Filler Squeegee ** Do not use a soap that contains petroleum based solvents. SERVICE TIP: Placement of decals using the “Wet” application will allow time to position decal. Read entire installation instructions on this technique before proceeding. TEMPERATURE IMPORTANT: Installation of vinyl decals should not be attempted while in direct sunlight. Air and surface temperature should be between 60°F (15°C) and 100°F (38°C) for best application. SURFACE PREPARATION IMPORTANT: Do not use a soap or any petroleum based solvents to clean application surface. Clean entire application surface with mild dish washing liquid and water.

This system provides quick voltage buildup and strong spark required for high power and high performance engines. The CDI ignition system does not incorporate mechanically operated points, therefor making this CDI unit virtually maintenance free. As the flywheel rotates, electrical power (alternating current) is produced by the capacitor charging coil. This power is rectified by diodes so that direct current voltage is utilized by the ignition system. When the ignition driver is off, the D.C. voltage is stored by the capacitor. Once capacitor voltage is charged to its potential, a gate signal is applied on the SCR and the residual current is dissipated through the capacitor charging coils. The electronic control module (ECM) activates the ignition driver in the ECM which allows the capacitor to discharge, causing the spark to occur. Ignition timing is regulated by the ECM which receives status input from a variety of sensors. These sensors include the crank position sensor, engine temperature and oil pressure sender. The voltage discharged to the primary winding of the ignition coil causes a surge of high voltage to be induced in the secondary winding of the ignition coil. This induced voltage of sufficient amplitude causes the spark plugs to fire. Ignition Component Description Electronic Control Module (ECM) Under normal operating conditions the ECM unit controls the following: 1. Controls ignition spark timing by monitoring the crank position sensor, the engine temperature sensor, and the oil pressure sensor. 2. Maintains normal idle timing (see specification). 3. Engine stall. a. The stall saver feature will advance the ignition timing to 15° BTDC if engine falls below 650 RPM. 4. Advances spark timing quickly to 28° BTDC under hard acceleration conditions. 5. Limits RPM of the engine in the event of a over speed condition (cavitation, no load on propeller, and/or under propped), as listed in the following steps: a. Soft Reduction: Ignition timing is gradually retarded to keep engine RPM below 6200. b. Spark Cut-Out Reduction: Percentages of ignition spark will be cut-out according to the degree of over speed RPM reached. Page 2A-10 90-858896 MAY 2000 IGNITION RPM % Spark Cut-Out 6250 11% 6281 33% 6313 66% 6. Over Heat Protection: Limits engine RPM to 2000 if the engine temperature exceeds 179.6° F (82° C). The ECM will sound the over heat warning horn (a continuous tone) and turn on the optional Over Heat Warning lamp. Over heat warning will subside if the engine temperature drops below 174.2° F (79° C) and engine RPM is momentarily dropped below 1000 RPM as a reset condition. The ECM incorporates a 20 second warning system delay to compensate for a warm restart (heat soak) condition. 7. Low Oil Pressure Protection: Limits the engine RPM to 2000 if oil pressure drops below 2.25 +/– 0.75 psi. The ECM will sound the low oil pressure warning horn (intermittent 1 second on - 1 second off) and turn on the optional Low Oil Pressure Warning lamp. Low oil pressure warning will reset by shutting the engine off and restarting at a normal oil pressure. The ECM incorporates a 10 second warning system delay to allow engine to achieve operating oil pressure. NOTE:The ECM controls all timing operations. There are no timing adjustment required on this engine. Crank Position Sensor Contains a permanent magnet and is positioned 0.030 ± 0.010, (0.762 ± 0.254mm) from the flywheel teeth. The timed passing of the flywheel teeth through the sensor’s magnetic field enables the ECM to determine engine RPM and crankshaft angle. Stator Assembly 58489 The stator assembly located under the flywheel contains the Ignition, auto enrichener, and battery charge coils. All of these coils make up the stator assembly. As the flywheel permanent magnets pass the respective stator coil windings, an AC pulse current is produced at each coil winding when magnet polarity changes. (South to North), (North to South) etc. 90-858896 MAY 2000 Page 2A-11 IGNITION Page 2A-12 90-858896 MAY 2000 Flywheel Assembly The flywheel assembly contains six permanently charged magnet segments which are bonded and retained to the inner wall of the flywheel. Each magnet contains a north and a south pole providing a 12 pole system. Ignition Coils 58214 The primary (+) side of the ignition coil receives voltage discharged from a capacitor in the ignition (CDI) circuit located inside the ECM. The voltage is multiplied by the coil until it can jump the spark plug gap. Each ignition coil will produce a high voltage spark at each crankshaft revolution, producing a spark at each cylinder at the proper time (pre-determined by the ECM). Ignition coil maximum output is approximately 40,000 volts. Ignition Test Procedures Direct Voltage Adapter (DVA) WARNING DANGER – HIGH VOLTAGE/SHOCK HAZARD!

Resistance will increase if the engine is warm. Ignition Diagnostic Procedures TROUBLESHOOTING TIP: With engine running, use inductive timing light to check spark advance of each cylinder as throttle is opened and closed. If timing advances and retards on each cylinder, ignition system is MOST LIKELY functioning properly. IMPORTANT: If outboard appears to have an ignition system failure, it is recommended that before beginning in-depth troubleshooting: a. Ensure that the engine is mechanically sound condition. (Fuel System, Cylinder Compression etc.). b. Check all engine ground leads for loose or corroded connections. c. Disconnect and reconnect ignition harness connectors to verify proper continuity. SUGGESTED TESTING PROCEDURES NOTE:The following recommended tests and probable causes are not listed in any specific order. The technician should use this table as a guide to help isolate and test the specific problem/condition. Always perform the DVA tests first (if applicable), then perform resistance test to validate suspected component failure.

Operating Engine Without Battery If desired (or in an emergency), engines equipped with an electric start and alternator can be started and operated without a battery (either disconnected or removed) if “WARNING”, below, is followed. WARNING Before operating engine with battery leads disconnected from battery, disconnect the two wire (stator harness plug) from rectifier. Battery Charging System Troubleshooting CAUTION The charging system may be damaged by: 1) reversed battery cables, 2) running the engine with battery cables disconnected and stator leads connected to rectifier, 3) an open circuit, such as a broken wire or loose connection. A fault in the battery charging system usually will cause the battery to become undercharged. Check battery electrolyte level, and charge battery. If battery will NOT accept a satisfactory charge, replace battery. If battery accepts a satisfactory charge, determine the cause of the charging system problem as follows. 1. Check for correct battery polarity [RED cable to POSITIVE (+) battery terminal]. If polarity was incorrect, check for damaged regulator/rectifier. See “REGULATOR/RECTIFIER DIODE TEST”. 2. Check for loose or corroded battery connections. 3. Visually inspect wiring between stator and battery for cuts, chafing; and disconnected, loose or corroded connection. 4. Excessive electrical load (from too many accessories) will cause battery to run down. If visual inspection determines that battery connections and wiring are OK, perform the following stator and regulator/rectifier tests. 90-858896 MAY 2000 Page 2B-5 CHARGING & STARTING SYSTEM Battery Charging System Description (15 Ampere) The battery charging system components are the stator battery charge coils, regulator and battery. Alternating current (generated in battery charge coils) flows to the regulator, which changes the alternating current to a regulated direct current for charging the battery.

Failure to use a amp meter that can handle the specific current load could possibly damage the meter being used. IMPORTANT: Rectifier (optional accessory) must be functioning properly for accurate test results to be obtained. 1. Remove RED lead from (+) terminal of rectifier. 2. Connect RED (+) ammeter lead to rectifier (+) terminal and BLACK (–) ammeter lead to RED rectifier lead. 3. With engine running at the indicated RPM, the ammeter should indicate the following approximate amperes: 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 Alternator Current (Amps) RPM x 1000 4. If proper ampere readings are not obtained, replace stator. 90-858896 MAY 2000 Page 2B-7 CHARGING & STARTING SYSTEM 15 Ampere Stator 1. Check battery voltage at battery with engine running. 2. If battery voltage is above 14.5-15.0 volts, replace voltage regulator/rectifier. Check condition of battery as overcharging may have damaged battery. 3. If battery voltage is below 14.5 volts, charge battery. If battery can NOT be satisfactorily charged, replace battery. 4. If battery accepts a satisfactory charge, check battery voltage while cranking engine. If cranking voltage is not acceptable, replace battery. 5. If cranking voltage is acceptable, disconnect the RED (voltage regulator) connector. 6. Connect RED (+) ammeter lead to RED voltage regulator wire, and the BLACK (–) ammeter lead to the RED wiring harness wire. 7. Secure starter wires away from flywheel. 8. With engine running at the indicated RPM’s, the ammeter should indicate the following appropriate amperes: Alternator current (Amps) 16 14 12 10 8 6 4 2 0 0123456 RPM x 1000 9. A reading of 15 amperes at 5000 RPM indicates the charging system is functioning properly. 10. If ammeter reads less than required amperes @ 5000 RPM, test the stator (refer to “Stator Ohms Test”). If stator tests OK, replace rectifier/regulator. Page 2B-8 90-858896 MAY 2000 CHARGING & STARTING SYSTEM Stator Ohms Test STATOR (BATTERY CHARGE COIL) 6 Amp.

The battery supplies electrical energy to crank the starter motor. When the ignition switch is turned to “START” position, the starter solenoid is activated and completes the starting circuit between the battery and starter. The neutral start switch opens the start circuit when the shift control lever is not in neutral. This prevents accidental starting when engine is in gear. The starting system consists of the following components. 1. Battery 2. Starter Solenoid 3. Neutral Safety Switch 4. Starter Motor 5. Ignition Switch CAUTION The starter motor may be damaged if operated continuously. DO NOT operate continuously for more than 30 seconds. Allow a 2 minute cooling period between starting attempts. Troubleshooting the Starting Circuit Before beginning the starting circuit troubleshooting flow chart, following, check first for the following conditions: 1. Make sure that battery is fully charged. 2. Check that control lever is in “NEUTRAL” position. 3. Check terminals for corrosion and loose connections. 4. Check cables and wiring for frayed and worn insulation. 5. Check 20 Amp fuse. Page 2B-12 90-858896 MAY 2000 CHARGING & STARTING SYSTEM Starter Solenoid Test 1. Inspect starter solenoid for cracks, loose terminals or loose terminal lead connections. 2. Connect ohm meter between terminals of starter solenoid. 3.

Clean all motor parts. 2. Check pinion teeth for chips, cracks or excessive wear. 3. Replace the drive clutch spring and/or collar, if tension is not adequate, or if wear is excessive. 4. Check that the brush holder is not damaged or is not holding the brushes against the commutator. 5. Replace brushes that are pitted or worn to less than 1/4 in. (6.4mm) in length. Refer to “BRUSH REPLACEMENT”, following. 6. Replace a damaged or excessively worn bushing in the end cap. 7. Check the armature conductor (commutator bar junction) for a firm connection. A poor connection usually results in a burned commutator bar. 8. Re-surface and undercut a rough commutator, as follows: CAUTION Do not turn down the commutator excessively. a. Re-surface the commutator and undercut the insulation between the commutator bars 1/3 in. (0.8mm) to the full width of the insulation, make sure that the undercut is flat. b. Clean the commutator slots after undercutting. c. De-burr the commutator lightly with No. 00 sandpaper, then clean the commutator. d. Check the armature on a growler for shorts. See “TESTING”, following. 9. Open-circuited armatures often can be saved where and open circuit is obvious and repairable. The most likely place for an open circuit is at the commutator bars. Long cranking periods overheat the starter motor so that solder in the connections melts. The poor connections cause arcing and burning of the commutator bars. 10. Repair bars, that are not too badly burned, by re-soldering the leads in bars (using rosin flux solder) and turning down the commutator in a lathe to remove burned material, then undercut the mica. 11. Clean out the copper or brush dust from slots between the commutator bars. 12. Check the armature for shorts and ground. See “TESTING”. Page 2B-18 90-858896 MAY 2000 CHARGING & STARTING SYSTEM Testing ARMATURE TEST FOR SHORTS Check armature for short circuits by placing on growler and holding hack saw blade over armature core while armature is rotated. If saw blade vibrates, armature is shorted. Recheck after cleaning between commutator bars. If saw blade still vibrates, replace armature. ARMATURE TEST FOR GROUND 1. Set ohmmeter to (R x 1 scale). Place one lead of ohmmeter on armature core (or shaft) and other lead on commutator, as shown. 2. If meter indicates continuity, armature is grounded and must be replaced. 90-858896 MAY 2000 Page 2B-19 CHARGING & STARTING SYSTEM CHECKING POSITIVE BRUSHES AND TERMINALS 1. Connect ohmmeter (R x 1 scale) leads between positive brushes. 2. Ohmmeter must indicate full continuity (zero resistance). If resistance is indicated, check lead to positive terminal solder connection. If connection cannot be repaired, brushes must be replaced. Refer to “BRUSH REPLACEMENT”. a 11673 a-Positive Brushes TESTING NEGATIVE BRUSHES FOR GROUND Set ohmmeter to (R x 1 scale).

With the outboard in water, start engine and allow to warm up. Shift the outboard to neutral. 2. Connect a tachometer to the engine. 3. Adjust idle RPM screw (a) on bottom carburetor to obtain an idle setting of 1000 RPM in neutral. If necessary, keep adjusting the idle screw. NOTE: Keep engine speed set at 1000 RPM in neutral while synchronizing carburetors. 58253 a a - Idle RPM Screw TIMING, SYNCHRONIZING, & ADJUSTING 90-858896 MAY 2000 Page 2C-9 4. Read the vacuum of cylinder #4. It’s not important to be at any specific vacuum setting. 5. Adjust the carburetor synchronization screws of cylinders #3, #2 and #1 to match the base vacuum of cylinder #4. NOTE: Keep viewing the tachometer, as the engine RPM may fluctuate during adjustments. Keep adjusting the idle RPM screw in order to keep the engine speed at 1000 RPM. Example 32 cm 30 cm 28 cm 26 cm Cyl. # 3 Cyl. #. 2 Cyl. # 1 If the vacuum reading of Cyl. #4 (base vacuum) is 30 cm, then adjust carburetor synchronization screws of cylinders #3, #2, and #1 to 30 cm. a b Cyl. # 4 d 58251 c a - Carburetor Synchronization Screw #1 b - Carburetor Synchronization Screw #2 c - Carburetor Synchronization Screw #3 d - Throttle Cam TIMING, SYNCHRONIZING, & ADJUSTING Page 2C-10 90-858896 MAY 2000 CAUTION When using the old style mercury filled carb. tuner (91-809641) install filters (4) in each line. This will prevent mercury from being drawn into carburetors during an abrupt throttle change. WARNING When revving the engine move the throttle cam to increase RPM. Do not use remote control or tiller handle twist throttle to increase RPM. If you do, the throttle linkage will contact the bottom intake manifold hose adaptor and damage the fitting. 6. Rev engine a few times and let engine idle for 15 seconds. Check that the vacuum values remain the same between cylinders. Re-adjust if necessary. 7. Stop engine, remove adaptors and reinstall plugs. Refer to Idle Speed Adjustment and adjust the idle RPM back to specification. Idle Speed Adjustment NOTE: The engine should be completely warmed up for the adjustment. Correct adjustments can not be obtained in a cold condition. 1. With the outboard in water, start engine and allow to warm up. Shift the outboard to forward gear. 2. With the outboard in forward gear, turn the idle adjustment screw located on the #4 (bottom) carburetor to attain the specified idle RPM. 58253 a a - Idle RPM Adjustment Screw TIMING, SYNCHRONIZING, & ADJUSTING 90-858896 MAY 2000 Page 2C-11 3. Rev engine 2 or 3 times and allow to idle for 15 seconds. a. If the engine holds a stable idle condition, then no other adjustments are necessary. b. If the engine has an unstable idle condition, then carburetor synchronization is required. Refer to Carburetor Synchronization preceding. Dashpot Adjustment NOTE: The function of the dashpot is to eliminate stalling after a rapid deceleration. When the engine drops quickly in RPM, the linkage will contact the dashpot plunger and gradually bring the RPM down until the correct engine idle speed is reached. 1. Open the throttle cam until the dashpot linkage is fully open and the plunger is fully extended. 2. Using a feeler gage, measure the clearance between the end of the plunger and the face of the adjacent bracket. The clearance should be 0.050 - 0.060 in. (1.3 - 1.5mm).” 3. If the gap needs to be adjusted because it does not fall within the above specs, loosen the jam nut (12mm wrench) and turn the dashpot (10mm wrench) in the appropriate direction. Tighten the jam nut when the correct setting is attained. 58253 b a d c e c a - Throttle Cam b - Feeler Gage c - Dashpot d - Dashpot Plunger e - Dashpot Locknut WIRING DIAGRAMS ELECTRICAL Section 2D -

The fuel pump is a diaphragm pump which is mechanically driven off of the rocker arm. 2. The black mounting block (insulator) helps prevent vapor lock. 3. If the engine runs out of fuel, or has a restriction preventing adequate fuel flow, the pump will make a “clicking” noise. WARNING FIRE AND EXPLOSION HAZARD. Observe fire prevention rules, particularly NO SMOKING. Before servicing any part of the fuel system, disconnect electrical system at the battery. Drain the fuel system completely. Use an approved container to collect and store fuel. Wipe up any spillage immediately. Materials used to contain spillage must be disposed of in an approved receptacle. Any fuel system service must be performed in a well ventilated area. FUEL LEAKAGE FROM ANY PART OF THE FUEL SYSTEM CAN BE A FIRE AND EXPLOSION HAZARD WHICH CAN CAUSE SERIOUS BODILY INJURY OR DEATH. Careful periodic inspection of the entire fuel system is mandatory, particularly after engine storage. All fuel components, including fuel tanks, whether plastic, metal, or fiberglass, fuel lines, primer bulbs, fittings, swelling, and must be inspected for corrosion. Any sign of leakage or deterioration necessitates replacement before further engine operation. Page 3A-4 90-858896 MAY 2000 FUEL PUMP 90-858896 MAY 2000 Page 3A-5 Fuel Pump Removal 1.

Drilling a small hole in the center of the plug and using an awl to pry out the plug must be done with extreme caution. The sealing plug is very thin and the idle mixture screw is located directly behind the plug. It is recommended that additional idle mixture screws be ordered for stock should the original mixture screw be damaged during drilling or the removal process. Idle mixture screw adjustment is strictly regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency. However, if the carburetor is overhauled, the EPA allows the adjustment of the mixture screws. Each idle mixture screw (1 per carburetor) is located behind a sealing plug. The sealing plug can be removed by carefully drilling a small hole in the center of the plug and prying the plug out with an awl. After mixture screws have been adjusted, a new sealing plug MUST BE installed over each mixture screw. 58218 58474 58473 a b c a - Plug b - Idle Mixture Screw (behind plug) c - Install new plug and seat flush with casting after adjusting idle mixture screw Idle Mixture Screw – Turns Out 1 CARBURETOR Page 3B-12 90-858896 MAY 2000 Carburetor Removal 1.

Emissions are what comes out of the exhaust system in the exhaust gas when the engine is running. They are formed as a result of the process of combustion or incomplete combustion. To understand exhaust gas emissions, remember that both air and fuel are made of several elements. Air contains oxygen and nitrogen among other elements; gasolene contains mainly hydrogen and carbon. These four elements combine chemically during combustion. If combustion were complete, the mixture of air and gasoline would result in these emissions: water, carbon dioxide and nitrogen, which are not harmful to the environment. But combustion is not usually complete. Also, potentially harmful gases can be formed during and after combustion. All marine engines must reduce the emission of certain pollutants, or potentially harmful gases, in the exhaust to conform with levels legislated by the EPA. Emissions standards become more stringent each year. Standards are set primarily with regard to three emissions: hydrocarbons (HC), carbon monoxide (CO) and oxides of nitrogen (NOx). Hydrocarbons – HC Gasoline is a hydrocarbon fuel. The two elements of hydrogen and carbon are burned during combustion in combination with oxygen. But they are not totally consumed. Some pass through the combustion chamber and exit the exhaust system as unburned gases known as hydrocarbons. Carbon Monoxide – CO Carbon is one of the elements that make up the fuel burned in the engine along with oxygen during the combustion process. If the carbon in the gasoline could combine with enough oxygen (one carbon atom with two oxygen atoms), it would come out of the engine in the form of carbon dioxide (CO2). CO2 is a harmless gas. But carbon often combines with insufficient oxygen (one carbon atom with one oxygen atom). This forms carbon monoxide, CO. Carbon monoxide is the product of incomplete combustion and is a dangerous, potentially lethal gas. Oxides of Nitrogen - NOx NOx is a slightly different byproduct of combustion. Nitrogen is one of the elements that makes up the air going into the engine. Under extremely high temperatures it combines with oxygen to form oxides of nitrogen (NOx). This happens in the engine’s combustion chambers when temperatures are too high. NOx itself is not harmful, but when exposed to sunlight it combines with unburned hydrocarbons to create the visible air pollutant known as smog. Smog is a serious problem in California as well as many other heavily populated areas of the United States. Controlling Emissions There are two principle methods of reducing emissions from a two-stroke-cycle marine engine. The first method is to control the air/fuel ratio that goes into the combustion chamber. The second is to control the time when this air/fuel mixture enters the combustion chamber. Timing is important, to prevent any unburned mixture from escaping out of the exhaust port. Page 3C-2 90-858896 MAY 2000 EMISSIONS Stoichiometric (14.7:1) Air/Fuel Ratio In the search to control pollutants and reduce exhaust emissions, engineers have discovered that they can be reduced effectively if a gasoline engine operates at an air/fuel ratio of 14.7:1. The technical term for this ideal ratio is stoichiometric. An air/fuel ratio of 14.7:1 provides the best control of all three elements in the exhaust under almost all conditions. The HC and CO content of the exhaust gas is influenced significantly by the air/fuel ratio. At an air/fuel ratio leaner than 14.7:1, HC and CO levels are low, but with a ratio richer than 14.7:1 they rise rapidly. It would seem that controlling HC and CO by themselves might not be such a difficult task; the air/fuel ratio only needs to be kept leaner than 14.7:1. However, there is also NOx to consider. As the air/fuel ratio becomes leaner, combustion temperatures increase. Higher combustion temperatures raise the NOx content of the exhaust. But, enrichening the air/fuel ratio to decrease combustion temperatures and reduce NOx also increases HC and CO, as well as lowering fuel economy. So the solution to controlling NOx - as well as HC and CO - is to keep the air/fuel ratio as close to 14.7:1 as possible.

All other models use a homogenized charge. The difference between the two is: Homogenized Charge A homogenized charge has the fuel/air particles mixed evenly throughout the cylinder. This mixing occurs inside the carburetor venturi, reed blocks and crankcase. Additional mixing occurs as the fuel is forced through the transfer system into the cylinder. The homogenized charge is easy to ignite as the air/fuel ratio is approximately 14.7:1. Page 3C-4 90-858896 MAY 2000 EMISSIONS Stratified Charge A stratified charge engine only pulls air through the transfer system. The fuel required for combustion is forced into the cylinder through an injector placed in the top of the cylinder (head). The injector sprays a fuel/air mixture in the form of a bubble into the cylinder. Surrounding this bubble is air supplied by the transfer system. As the bubble is ignited and burns, the surrounding air provides almost complete combustion before the exhaust port opens. A stratified charge is hard to ignite, the fuel/air bubble is not evenly mixed at 14.7:1 and not easily ignited. 90-858896 MAY 2000 Page 3C-5 EMISSIONS Emissions Information Manufacturer’s Responsibility: Beginning with 1998 model year engines, manufacturers of all marine propulsion engines must determine the exhaust emission levels for each engine horsepower family and certify these engines with the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). A certification decal/emissions control information label, showing emission levels and engine specifications directly related to emissions, must be placed on each engine at the time of manufacture. Dealer Responsibility: When performing service on all 1998 and later outboards that carry a certification, attention must be given to any adjustments that are made that affect emission levels. Adjustments must be kept within published factory specifications. Replacement or repair of any emission related component must be executed in a manner that maintains emission levels within the prescribed certification standards. Dealers are not to modify the engine in any manner that would alter the horsepower or allow emission levels to exceed their predetermined factory specifications. Exceptions include manufacturers prescribed changes, such as that for altitude adjustments. Owner Responsibility: The owner/operator is required to have engine maintenance performed to maintain emission levels within prescribed certification standards. The owner/operator is not to modify the engine in any manner that would alter the horsepower or allow emissions levels to exceed their predetermined factory specifications. Exceptions: • Carburetor jets may be changed for high altitude use in accordance with factory recommendations. • Single engine exceptions may be allowed with permission from the EPA for racing and testing. Page 3C-6 90-858896 MAY 2000 EMISSIONS EPA Emission Regulations: All new 1998 and later outboards manufactured by Mercury Marine are certified to the United States Environmental Protection Agency as conforming to the requirements of the regulations for the control of air pollution from new outboard motors. This certification is contingent on certain adjustments being set to factory standards. For this reason, the factory procedure for servicing the product must be strictly followed and, whenever practicable, returned to the original intent of the design. The responsibilities listed above are general and in no way a complete listing of the rules and regulations pertaining to the EPA laws on exhaust emissions for marine products.

(16.000 -16.018 mm) 90-858896 MAY 2000 Page 4A-25 CYLINDER HEAD Camshaft Manual start models are equipped with a cam shaft featuring a compression release mechanism. The compression relief mechanism releases a percentage of the cylinder compression during engine cranking which lowers the starter rope pull force. At cranking speeds (RPM) the cam shaft decompression levers rest against the side of the exhaust cam lobes, protruding out from the heal of the lobe. This protrusion contacts the exhaust valve rocker arms during the compression stroke, slightly opening the exhaust valve. With the increase of centrifugal force at engine running speeds, the decompression levers swing out of contact with the exhaust valve rocker arms, allowing the exhaust valves to operate normally (fully closed) during the compression stroke. a b a-Exhaust Valve Rocker Arm b-Decompression Lever 1. Inspect the camshaft for pitting, heat discoloration, scratches and for the following measurements. Replace camshaft if worn or not within specification. 2.

The remote control (or trim panel) is equipped with a switch that is used for trimming the outboard “up” and “down”, and for tilting the outboard for shallow water operation (at slow speed) or for “trailering”. The outboard can be trimmed “up” or “down” while engine is under power or when engine is not running. Adjustments Trimming Characteristics NOTE: Because varying hull designs react differently in various degrees of rough water, it is recommended to experiment with trim positions to determine whether trimming “up” or “down” will improve the ride in rough water. When trimming your outboard from a mid-trim position (trim tab in neutral, straight fore-andaft, position), you can expect the following results: TRIMMING OUTBOARD “UP” (“OUT”) WARNING Excessive trim “out” may reduce the stability of some high speed hulls. To correct instability at high speed, reduce the power gradually and trim the motor “In” slightly before resuming high speed operation. (Rapid reduction in power will cause a sudden change of steering torque and may cause additional momentary boat instability.) • Will lift bow of boat, generally increasing top speed. • Transfers steering torque harder to left on installations below 23 in. transom height. • Increases clearance over submerged objects. • In excess, can cause porpoising and/or ventilation. • In excess, can cause insufficient water supply to water pump resulting in serious water pump and/or powerhead overheating damage. WARNING Excessive engine trim angle will result in insufficient water supply to water pump causing water pump and/or powerhead overheating damage. Make sure that water level is above gear housing water intake holes whenever engine is running. Operating “Up” circuit will actuate the “up” relay (located under engine cowl) and close the electric motor circuit. The electric motor will drive the pump, thus forcing automatic transmission fluid through internal passageways into the “up” side of the trim cylinder. The trim cylinder/trim rod will position the engine at the desired trim angle within the 20° maximum trim range. The power trim system is designed so the engine cannot be trimmed beyond the 20 maximum trim angle as long as engine RPM is above approximately 2000 RPM. The engine can be raised beyond the 20 maximum trim angle for shallow water operation, etc., by keeping the engine RPM below 2000 RPM. If engine RPM increases above 2000 RPM, the thrust created by the propeller (if deep enough in the water) will cause the trim system to automatically lower the engine back to the 20 maximum trim angle. Page 5B-6 90-858896 MAY2000 POWER TRIM TRIMMING OUTBOARD “DOWN” (“IN”) WARNING Excessive speed at minimum trim “In” may cause undesirable and/or unsafe steering conditions. Each boat should be tested for handling characteristics after any adjustment is made to the tilt angle (tilt pin relocation). • Will help planing off, particularly with a heavy load. • Usually improves ride in choppy water. • In excess, can cause boat to veer to the left or right (bow steer). • Transfers steering torque harder to right (or less to the left). • Improves planing speed acceleration (by moving tilt pin one hole closer to transom). Operating “Down” circuit will actuate the “down” relay (located under engine cowl) and close the electric motor circuit (motor will run in opposite direction of the “Up” circuit). The electric motor will drive the pump, thus forcing automatic transmission fluid through internal passageways into the “down” side of the trim cylinder. The trim rod will move the engine downward to the desired angle. Trailering Outboard WARNING Excessive engine trim angle will result in insufficient water supply to water pump causing water pump and/or powerhead overheating damage. Make sure that water level is above gear housing water intake holes whenever engine is running. While operating “up” circuit, the cylinder rod will continue to tilt the outboard to a full up position for trailering. Tilting Outboard Up and Down Manually WARNING Before loosening the manual release valve, make sure all persons are clear of engine, as engine will drop to full “down” position when valve is loosened. With power trim installed, the outboard can be raised or lowered manually by opening the manual release valve 3 to 4 turns (counterclockwise). 55170 a a-Manual Release Valve 90-858896 MAY2000 Page 5B-7 POWER TRIM Page 5B-8 90-858896 MAY2000 Power Trim Flow Diagrams ÍÍ ÍÍ Reservoir Oil Filtered Feed Oil Oil Under Pressure Return Oil Up Pressure 1625 psi (3060 hp) 2800 psi (75125 hp) mininmum Tilt Relief Pressure 250400 psi (3060 hp) 500700 psi (4060 hp Bigfoot) 540990 psi (75125 hp) Impact Relief Pressure #22 8801110 psi (3060 hp) 12201420 psi (75125 hp) a b c d e g f h i j k l m o g p q s r t u v w TRIM UP CIRCUIT n a - Piston Rod b - End Cap c - Electric Motor d - Reservoir Oil e - Down Circuit Pressure Relief Valve f - Down Circuit Pressure Operated Valve g - Filter (2 shown for clarity) h - Shock Return Valve i - Up Circuit Suction Port j - Oil Pump k - Down Circuit Suction Port l - Oil Fill Cap m - Shuttle Valve n - Up Circuit Pressure Operated Valve o - Manifold Reverse Suction Valve p - Manual Release Valve q - Manifold r - Tilt Relief Valve s - Tilt Relief Piston t - Memory Piston u - Shock Piston v - Impact Relief Valve w - Cylinder POWER TRIM Trim Up When the trim switch is activated in the up position, the electric motor (c) begins to rotate the oil pump gears (j), the oil pump draws a small amount of oil through the filter (g) and through the up circuit suction port (i). The oil pump gear (j) rotation forces oil into the passages for the up circuit. Oil, under pressure, will slide the shuttle valve (m) against the down circuit pressure operated valve (f). The shuttle valve will mechanically open the down pressure operated valve, allowing oil from the down cavity of the trim cylinder, to flow into the oil pump. This returning oil, from the down cavity, will supply most of the oil required for the up circuit. Oil in the up circuit is blocked from returning into the reservoir by the ball inside the down circuit suction port (k). The pressure of the oil will force the up circuit pressure operated valve (n) to open, allowing the oil to enter the passages inside the manifold (q) leading to the trim cylinder (w) up cavity. Oil is blocked from all other passages by the closed manual release valve (p). Oil under pressure will enter the trim cylinder below the memory piston (t). With an increasing amount of oil entering the cylinder, the memory piston contacts the shock piston (u) and forces the piston rod (a) up and out, raising the outboard motor. Oil on the top of the shock piston exits through a passage running down along the side of the cylinder and enters the manifold passages. The oil is drawn back into the pump (j) through the open down circuit pressure operated valve (f) and enters the pump as supply for the up circuit. 90-858896 MAY2000 Page 5B-9 POWER TRIM Page 5B-10 90-858896 MAY2000 Tilt Circuit Tilt Relief Pressure 250400 psi (3060 hp) 500700 psi (4060 hp Bigfoot) 540990 psi (75125 hp) Up Pressure 1625 psi (3060 hp) 2800 psi (75125 hp) minimun Reservoir Oil Filtered Feed Oil Oil Under Pressure Return Oil ÍÍ ÍÍ Impact Relief Pressure #22 8801110 psi (3060 hp) 12201420 psi (75125 hp) a b c d w u v t h e f g s r p o g m n j k i l q a - Piston Rod b - End Cap c - Electric Motor d - Reservoir Oil e - Down Circuit Pressure Relief Valve f - Down Circuit Pressure Operated Valve g - Filter (2 shown for clarity) h - Shock Return Valve i - Up Circuit Suction Port j - Oil Pump k - Down Circuit Suction Port l - Oil Fill Cap m - Shuttle Valve n - Up Circuit Pressure Operated Valve o - Manifold Reverse Suction Valve p - Manual Release Valve q - Manifold r - Tilt Relief Valve s - Tilt Relief Piston t - Memory Piston u - Shock Piston v - Impact Relief Valve w - Cylinder POWER TRIM Tilt Up In the up mode, as the piston rod (a) extends from the cylinder (w), the memory piston (t) clears or uncovers the pressure relief passage. Oil from the up cavity will enter this passage and, if required, causes the tilt relief piston (s) to open the tilt pressure relief valve (r). This valve lowers the amount of pressure available to lift the outboard motor. With the engine in forward gear, and at high engine rpm, the oil pressure available will not be able to overcome the propeller thrust, limiting the trim range to below the pressure relief orifice. When the engine rpm falls or if engine is not in forward gear, the oil pressure is available to extend the piston rod (a) up into the tilt range. 90-858896 MAY2000 Page 5B-11 POWER TRIM Page 5B-12 90-858896 MAY2000 Maximum Tilt Up Pressure 1625 psi (3060 hp) 2800 psi (75125 hp) minimum ÍÍ ÍÍ Reservoir Oil Filtered Feed Oil Oil Under Pressure Return Oil Tilt Relief Pressure 250400 psi (3060 hp) 500700 psi (4060 hp Bigfoot) 540990 psi (75125 hp) Impact Relief Pressure #22 8801110 psi (3060 hp) 12201420 psi (75125 hp) a v t w b h c d e f g s r p o n g m i j k l u q a - Piston Rod b - End Cap c - Electric Motor d - Reservoir Oil e - Down Circuit Pressure Relief Valve f - Down Circuit Pressure Operated Valve g - Filter (2 shown for clarity) h - Shock Return Valve i - Up Circuit Suction Port j - Oil Pump k - Down Circuit Suction Port l - Oil Fill Cap m - Shuttle Valve n - Up Circuit Pressure Operated Valve o - Manifold Reverse Suction Valve p - Manual Release Valve q - Manifold r - Tilt Relief Valve s - Tilt Relief Piston t - Memory Piston u - Shock Piston v - Impact Relief Valve w - Cylinder POWER TRIM Maximum Tilt With the piston rod at maximum travel, and due to no rod movement, the pressure inside of the trim cylinder (w) will increase to the pressure required to move the tilt relief piston (s).

Up pressure flows into the trim relief passage, and returns back into the reservoir. 90-858896 MAY2000 Page 5B-13 POWER TRIM Page 5B-14 90-858896 MAY2000 Down Circuit Up Pressure 1625 psi (3060 hp) 2800 psi (75125 hp) minimum ÍÍ ÍÍ ÍÍ Reservoir Oil Filtered Feed Oil Oil Under Pressure Return Oil Tilt Relief Pressure 250400 psi (3060 hp) 500700 psi (4060 hp Bigfoot) 540990 psi (75125 hp) Impact Relief Pressure #22 8801110 psi (3060 hp) 12201420 psi (75125 hp) a w b c d i j k l m n g o p s r h g f e t u v q a - Piston Rod b - End Cap c - Electric Motor d - Reservoir Oil e - Down Circuit Pressure Relief Valve f - Down Circuit Pressure Operated Valve g - Filter (2 shown for clarity) h - Shock Return Valve i - Up Circuit Suction Port j - Oil Pump k - Down Circuit Suction Port l - Oil Fill Cap m - Shuttle Valve n - Up Circuit Pressure Operated Valve o - Manifold Reverse Suction Valve p - Manual Release Valve q - Manifold r - Tilt Relief Valve s - Tilt Relief Piston t - Memory Piston u - Shock Piston v - Impact Relief Valve w - Cylinder POWER TRIM Down Mode When the trim switch is activated in the down position, the electric motor (c) will rotate the pump (j) in the opposite direction. With the oil pump gears rotating backwards, the flow of oil is reversed. Oil is drawn through the filter (g), through the down circuit suction port (k) and into the oil pump (j). The pump forces pressurized oil into the down passages, oil will slide the shuttle valve (m) into the up circuit pressure operated valve (n). The shuttle valve will mechanically open the up circuit pressure operated valve and allow oil, from the up cavity of the trim cylinder (w), to return into the oil pump. This returning oil, from the up cavity, will supply the oil required for the down circuit. The oil is blocked from returning into the reservoir by the ball (i) inside the up circuit suction port. Oil, under pressure, opens the down circuit pressure operated valve (f) and enters the down passages inside of the manifold (q). The manifold passage connects into the trim cylinder passage leading to the top of the cylinder. The cavity, inside the cylinder, above the shock piston (u) is the down cavity. As the down cavity fills with oil, the piston rod (a) retracts into the cylinder, lowering the outboard motor. Oil from the up cavity exits the cylinder and is drawn back into the pump through the open up circuit pressure operated valve (n). When the piston rod reached full travel, the oil pressure inside the down circuit will rise until the down pressure regulating valve (e) opens, bypassing oil back into the reservoir. When the trim button is released, and the oil pump stops supplying pressure, both of the pressure operated valves (f & n) will close and; if open, the down pressure relief valve (e) will close. The closed valves will lock the fluid on either side of the shock piston (u) & memory piston (t), holding the outboard motor in position. 90-858896 MAY2000 Page 5B-15 POWER TRIM Page 5B-16 90-858896 MAY2000 Shock Function Up Up Pressure 1625 psi (3060 hp) 2800 psi (75125 hp) minimum ÍÍ ÍÍ Reservoir Oil Oil Under Pressure Return Oil Tilt Relief Pressure 250400 psi (3060 hp) 500700 psi (4060 hp Bigfoot) 540990 psi (75125 hp) Impact Relief Pressure #22 8801110 psi (3060 hp) 12201420 psi (75125 hp) a b c w v u t h d e f g i j k l m n g o p q s r a - Piston Rod b - End Cap c - Electric Motor d - Reservoir Oil e - Down Circuit Pressure Relief Valve f - Down Circuit Pressure Operated Valve g - Filter (2 shown for clarity) h - Shock Return Valve i - Up Circuit Suction Port j - Oil Pump k - Down Circuit Suction Port l - Oil Fill Cap m - Shuttle Valve n - Up Circuit Pressure Operated Valve o - Manifold Reverse Suction Valve p - Manual Release Valve q - Manifold r - Tilt Relief Valve s - Tilt Relief Piston t - Memory Piston u - Shock Piston v - Impact Relief Valve w - Cylinder POWER TRIM Shock Function Up Oil inside the down cavity is locked in a static position by the closed down circuit pressure operated valve (f), the manual release valve (p) and the manifold reverse suction valve (o). If the outboard strikes an underwater object while in forward gear, the piston rod (a) will try to rapidly extend from the cylinder (w), the pressure increases inside the trim cylinder down cavity and connecting passages. When the pressure increases to the level required, the impact relief valves (v), located inside the shock piston (u), will open and allow the fluid to pass through the shock piston. As the fluid passes through the piston, the piston rod (a) will extend from the trim cylinder. The memory piston (t) is held in position by vacuum, created by the oil in the up cavity being locked in a static position. Therefore; oil passing through the shock piston is trapped between the memory piston (t) and shock piston (u). 90-858896 MAY2000 Page 5B-17 POWER TRIM Page 5B-18 90-858896 MAY2000 Shock Function Return Up Pressure 1625 psi (3060 hp) 2800 psi (75125 hp) minimum ÍÍÍ ÍÍ Reservoir Oil Oil Under Pressure Return Oil Tilt Relief Pressure 250400 psi (3060 hp) 500700 psi (4060 hp Bigfoot) 540990 psi (75125 hp) Impact Relief Pressure #22 8801110 psi (3060 hp) 12201420 psi (75125 hp) a b c w v u t h d i j k l m n e f g g o p q s r a - Piston Rod b - End Cap c - Electric Motor d - Reservoir Oil e - Down Circuit Pressure Relief Valve f - Down Circuit Pressure Operated Valve g - Filter (2 shown for clarity) h - Shock Return Valve i - Up Circuit Suction Port j - Oil Pump k - Down Circuit Suction Port l - Oil Fill Cap m - Shuttle Valve n - Up Circuit Pressure Operated Valve o - Manifold Reverse Suction Valve p - Manual Release Valve q - Manifold r - Tilt Relief Valve s - Tilt Relief Piston t - Memory Piston u - Shock Piston v - Impact Relief Valve w - Cylinder POWER TRIM Shock Function Return After the engine clears the under water object, the weight of the engine will increase the oil pressure between the memory piston (t) and shock piston (u) to the level required to open the shock return valve (h), inside the shock piston, allowing the oil to bleed back through the shock piston into the down cavity. If required, additional oil will enter the down cavity through the manifold reverse suction valve (o). This will return the engine back against the memory piston (t) and into the original running position. 90-858896 MAY2000 Page 5B-19 POWER TRIM Page 5B-20 90-858896 MAY2000 Manual Release ÍÍ ÍÍ Reservoir Oil Return Oil Filtered Oil Down Pressure 525880 psi Up Pressure 1625 psi (3060 hp) 2800 psi (75125 hp) minimum Tilt Relief Pressure 250400 psi (3060 hp) 500700 psi (4060 hp Bigfoot) 540990 psi (75125 hp) Impact Relief Pressure #22 8801110 psi (3060 hp) 12201420 psi (75125 hp) f g a b c w v u t h d i j k l m n g o p q s r e f g a - Piston Rod b - End Cap c - Electric Motor d - Reservoir Oil e - Down Circuit Pressure Relief Valve f - Down Circuit Pressure Operated Valve g - Filter (2 shown for clarity) h - Shock Return Valve i - Up Circuit Suction Port j - Oil Pump k - Down Circuit Suction Port l - Oil Fill Cap m - Shuttle Valve n - Up Circuit Pressure Operated Valve o - Manifold Reverse Suction Valve p - Manual Release Valve q - Manifold r - Tilt Relief Valve s - Tilt Relief Piston t - Memory Piston u - Shock Piston v - Impact Relief Valve w - Cylinder POWER TRIM Manual Tilt To manually tilt the outboard engine, the owner will need to back out the manual release valve (p) 3-4 turns.

To raise the engine, the camshaft lever (f) is rotated all the way down. The internal shaft connected to the camshaft lever will move the push rods, opening the accumulator check valve (e), both fast transfer valves (h & j) and the down circuit slow transfer valve (i). As the operator lifts the engine, oil, under pressure inside the accumulator, will flow around both the slow transfer valve (i) and the down circuit fast transfer valve (h). Oil flows into the bottom of the tilt cylinder forcing the memory piston (m) into the shock piston (n) and then forcing the shock rod up and out. Oil above the shock piston exits the cylinder (l) through an interconnecting passage along side of the cylinder and returns into the manifold (g). Inside the manifold the oil flows past the groove in the surge valve (k), through the up circuit fast transfer valve (j) and mixes with the oil flowing from the accumulator into the up cavity. With the engine in the correct position, the camshaft lever (f) is rotated up and the push rods allow the check valves (e, h, i, & j) to close. The closed check valves prevent the oil from traveling between cavities and locks the engine into position. 90-858896 MAY 2000 Page 5C-5 MANUAL TILT ASSIST Page 5C-6 90-858896 MAY 2000 Down Circuit a b c d p o n m l j k i h g f e a - Shock Rod b - End Cap c - Accumulator d - Accumulator Piston e - Accumulator Check Valve f - Camshaft Lever g - Manifold h - Down Circuit Fast Transfer Valve i - Down Circuit Slow Transfer Valve j - Up Circuit Fast Transfer Valve k - Surge Valve l - Cylinder m - Memory Piston n - Shock Piston o - Shock Return Valve p - Impact Relief Valve MANUAL TILT ASSIST Down Circuit With the engine tilted up, the piston inside the accumulator piston (d) will be at the bottom of the accumulator (c) and the gas pressure is low. To lower the engine, the camshaft lever (f) is rotated down, the internal cam will cause the push rods to open the accumulator check valve (e), both fast transfer valves (h & j) and the down circuit slow transfer valve (i). The operator will have to press down on the engine cowl to overcome the pressure inside cylinder. Fluid will flow out of the bottom of the cylinder, past both the down circuit fast transfer valve (h) and down circuit slow transfer valve (i). Fluid will flow past the up circuit fast transfer valve (j), surge valve (k) and through the interconnecting passage into the top of the cylinder (l). Due to the shock rod (a), the tilt cylinder cavities differ in volume, the extra fluid from the up cavity [forced into the accumulator (c)] will cause the internal accumulator piston (d) to compress the gas. With the engine in the correct position, the camshaft lever is rotated up and the push rods allow the check valves (e, h, i, & j) to close. 90-858896 MAY 2000 Page 5C-7 MANUAL TILT ASSIST Page 5C-8 90-858896 MAY 2000 Slow Tilt Down Under High Thrust a b p c d e f j i h g k l m n o a - Shock Rod b - End Cap c - Accumulator d - Accumulator Piston e - Accumulator Check Valve f - Camshaft Lever g - Manifold h - Down Circuit Fast Transfer Valve i - Down Circuit Slow Transfer Valve j - Up Circuit Fast Transfer Valve k - Surge Valve l - Cylinder m - Memory Piston n - Shock Piston o - Shock Return Valve p - Impact Relief Valve MANUAL TILT ASSIST Slow Tilt Down Under High Thrust To tilt the engine down under high thrust conditions [where the propeller thrust forces the shock rod down, creating higher pressure below the memory piston (m)], the camshaft lever (f) is rotated slightly downward. The internal shaft connected to the lever will open the down circuit slow transfer valve (i) allowing oil under pressure into the cavity around the shaft. The higher oil pressure will open the up circuit fast transfer valve (j) allowing oil from the bottom of the cylinder to flow above the shock piston (n) while lowering the engine. Additional oil will flow into the accumulator (c) as the internal pressure forces the accumulator check valve (e) to open. Oil flowing into the accumulator moves the accumulator piston (d) and compresses the gas. 90-858896 MAY 2000 Page 5C-9 MANUAL TILT ASSIST Page 5C-10 90-858896 MAY 2000 Under Water Strike (Valves Open) a b p o n m l k j i h g f e d c a - Shock Rod b - End Cap c - Accumulator d - Accumulator Piston e - Accumulator Check Valve f - Camshaft Lever g - Manifold h - Down Circuit Fast Transfer Valve i - Down Circuit Slow Transfer Valve j - Up Circuit Fast Transfer Valve k - Surge Valve l - Cylinder m - Memory Piston n - Shock Piston o - Shock Return Valve p - Impact Relief Valve MANUAL TILT ASSIST Under Water Strike (Valves Open) Should the drive unit strike a submerged object while in forward motion, the shock rod (a) will extend from the tilt cylinder (l). Fluid will attempt to exit the cylinder through the interconnecting passage. The rapid fluid flow will increase the pressure below the surge valve (k), causing the valve to move, closing the oil return passage back into the accumulator (c). Oil inside the up cavity is locked in a static position by the closed surge valve. As the shock rod extends outward, the pressure inside the up cavity will reach sufficient pressure to open the shock valve (p) which opens at 880-1110 PSI.

IMPORTANT: Read the following before attempting any repairs. In many cases, disassembly of a sub-assembly may not be necessary until cleaning and inspection reveals that disassembly is required for replacement of one or more components. Service procedure order in this section is a normal disassembly-reassembly sequence. Threaded parts are right hand (RH), unless otherwise indicated. When holding, pressing or driving is required, use soft metal vise jaw protectors or wood for protection of parts. Use a suitable mandrel (one that will contact only the bearing race) when pressing or driving bearings. Whenever compressed air is used to dry a part, verify that no water is present in air line. Bearings WARNING To avoid personal injury, wear eye protection and regulate air pressure to not more than 25 p.s.i. (172 kPa) when drying bearings with compressed air. Do not spin bearings with compressed air as this may cause bearings to score from lack of lubrication. All bearings must be cleaned and inspected. Clean bearings with solvent and dry with compressed air. Air should be directed at the bearing so that it passes through the bearing. Do not spin bearing with compressed air (see above warning). After cleaning, lubricate bearings with Quicksilver Gear Lubricant. DO NOT lubricate tapered bearing cups until after inspection. Inspect all bearings for roughness, catches and bearing race side wear. Work inner bearing race in-and-out, while holding outer race, to check for side wear. When inspecting tapered bearings, determine condition of rollers and inner bearing race by inspecting bearing cup for pitting, scoring, grooves, uneven wear, imbedded particles and/or discoloration from over-heating. Always replace tapered bearing and race as a set. Inspect gear housing for bearing races that have spun in their respective bores. If race(s) have spun, gear housing must be replaced. Roller bearing condition is determined by inspecting the surface of the shaft that the roller bearing supports. Check shaft surface for pitting scoring, grooving, imbedded particles, uneven wear and/or discoloration from overheating. The shaft and bearing must be replaced if such a condition exists. Seals As a normal procedure, all O-rings and oil seals should be replaced without regard to appearance. To prevent leakage around seals, apply Loctite 271 to outer diameter of all seals. When using Loctite on seals or threads, surfaces must be clean and dry. Apply 2-4-C w/Teflon on all O-rings and on I.D. of oil seals. Apply 2-4-C w/Teflon to external surfaces of bearing carrier. Page 6A-10 90-858896 MAY 2000 NON-BIGFOOT GEAR HOUSING Draining and Inspecting Gear Lubricant WARNING If gear housing is installed on engine, to avoid accidental starting, disconnect (and isolate) spark plug leads from spark plugs before working near the propeller. 53922 a b 1. With gear housing in normal running position, place a clean pan under housing and remove the two vent screws and one fill/drain screw (with gaskets). a-Vent Plug b-Fill/Drain Plug 2. Inspect gear lubricant for metal particles (lubricant will have a “metal flake” appearance). Presence of fine metal particles (resembling powder) in the drain pan indicates normal wear. The presence of metal chips in the drain pan indicates the need for gear housing disassembly and component inspection. 3. Note color of gear lubricant. White or cream color MAY indicate presence of water in lubricant. Gear lubricant which has been drained from a gear case recently in operation will have a yellowish color due to lubricant agitation/aeration. Gear lube which is mixed with assembly lubricant (Special Lube 101 or 2-4-C w/Teflon) will also be creamy white in color. This is normal and should not be confused with the presence of water. If water is suspected to be present in gearcase, a pressure check of gearcase should be made (with no lubricant in gearcase). Gearcase should hold 10-12 psi of pressure for 5 minutes without leaking down. Pouring a portion of the gear lubricant into a glass jar and allowing the lubricant to settle will allow any water in the lube to separate and settle to the bottom of the jar. 4. Presence of water in gear lubricant indicates the need for disassembly and inspection of oil seals, seal surfaces, O-rings, water pump gaskets, bearings and bearing surfaces, as well as gear housing components. If gearcase is rebuilt, gearcase should be pressure checked before filling with lubricant. 90-858896 MAY 2000 Page 6A-11 NON-BIGFOOT GEAR HOUSING Removal WARNING To prevent accidental engine starting, remove (and isolate) spark plug leads from spark plugs before removing gear housing. 1. Remove (and isolate) spark plug leads from spark plugs. 2. Shift engine into forward gear. 3. Tilt engine to full “Up” position. 4. Remove 4 bolts and washers, two from each side 5.

Excess lubricant will not allow driveshaft to fully engage crankshaft. Tightening the gear housing fasteners (if excess lubricant is on top of driveshaft) will load the driveshaft/crankshaft and may damage either or both powerhead and gear housing. Wipe the top of driveshaft free of lubricant. 5. Lightly apply Quicksilver 2-4-C w/Teflon onto the driveshaft splines. 6. Shift gear housing into forward gear. Gear housing will not engage when propeller shaft is turned clockwise. 7. Position driveshaft into driveshaft housing. Move gear housing towards driveshaft housing while aligning shift shaft coupler, water tube seal and driveshaft splines. NOTE:If the driveshaft splines will not align with the crankshaft splines, install a propeller and turn the propeller shaft counterclockwise while pushing gear housing onto driveshaft housing. It may also be necessary to move the shift block (on the powerhead) to align the shift shaft splines for proper re-assembly. 8. Install 4 bolts and washers, (two each side). Apply Loctite 271 on bottom half of bolt threads prior to installation. 9. Install locknut and washer. 10.

Propeller shaft will rotate freely in either direction when gearcase is in neutral. c. Propeller shaft will not rotate in either direction when gearcase is in reverse. IMPORTANT: If shift operation is not as described, remove the gear housing and correct the shift operation. 90-858896 MAY 2000 Page 6A-49 NON-BIGFOOT GEAR HOUSING Filling Gear Housing with Lubricant NOTE: Gear housing lubricant capacity is approximately 11.5 fl. oz. (340 ml). WARNING If gear housing is installed on outboard, disconnect (and isolate) spark plug leads from spark plugs before working near the propeller. CAUTION Do not use automotive grease in the gear housing. Use only Quicksilver Gear Lube. 1. Remove any gasket material from “Fill/Drain” and “Vent” plugs and gear housing. Install new sealing washers on “Fill/Drain” and “Vent” plugs. IMPORTANT: Never add lubricant without removing “Vent” plugs. Gear housing cannot be filled because of trapped air. Fill gear housing when driveshaft is in a vertical position. 2. Remove “Fill/Drain” plug and sealing washer. 3. Insert lubricant tube in “Fill/Drain” hole, then remove “Vent” plugs and sealing washer. 4. Fill until excess lubricant flows out of left “Vent” hole. 5. Replace left “Vent” plug and sealing washer and continue to fill until lubricant flows from right “Vent” hole. 6. Replace right “Vent” plug and sealing washer. 7.

Do not paint or place protective coating on the trim tab, or trim tab corrosion protection function will be lost. 1. Replace trim tab if 50% (or more) corroded. Mark location of old trim tab on anti-ventilation plate before removal; install new trim tab in same location. 2. The trim tab will offset (balance) some of the “steering load” that is caused by “propeller torque” at higher speeds. If at higher speeds the boat turns more easily to the left, loosen bolt, move the trim tab (trailing edge) to the left (when viewed from behind); re-tighten bolt. Turn trim tab (trailing edge) to the right if the boat turns more easily to the right. 50553 a b c a-Trim Tab b-Anti-Ventilation Plate c-Retaining Bolt and Washer M10x30 Retaining Bolt Torque 22 lb-ft (29.8 Nm) 90-858896 MAY 2000 Page 6A-51 BIGFOOT GEAR HOUSING LOWER UNIT Section 6B - Bigfoot Gear Housing Table of Contents Specifications . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 6B-1 Special Tools . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 6B-2 Quicksilver Lubricants and Service Aids . . . . . . 6B-5 Gear Housing (Drive Shaft) (2.07:1 Gear Ratio) . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 6B-6 Gear Housing (Prop Shaft) (2.07:1 Gear Ratio) . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 6B-8 General Service Recommendations . . . . . . . . 6B-10 Bearings . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 6B-10 Seals . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 6B-10 Draining and Inspecting Gear Lubricant . . . . . 6B-11 Removal . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 6B-12 Disassembly. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 6B-13 Water Pump . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 6B-13 Bearing Carrier and Propeller Shaft . . . . . . 6B-16 Pinion Gear, Drive Shaft, and Forward Gear. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 6B-21 Upper Drive Shaft Bearing. . . . . . . . . . . . . . 6B-24 Oil Sleeve . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 6B-25 Lower Drive Shaft Bearing Race . . . . . . . . . 6B-26 Shift Shaft . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 6B-27 Forward Gear Bearing Race . . . . . . . . . . . . 6B-29 Trim Tab Adjustment and Replacement . . . 6B-29 Specifications Reassembly . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 6B-30 Forward Gear Bearing Race . . . . . . . . . . . . 6B-30 Shift Shaft . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 6B-30 Bearing Carrier Reassembly . . . . . . . . . . . . 6B-33 Forward Gear Reassembly . . . . . . . . . . . . . 6B-37 Propeller Shaft Reassembly . . . . . . . . . . . . 6B-39 Drive Shaft Wear Sleeve Installation . . . . . 6B-40 Lower Drive Shaft Bearing Race Installation. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 6B-42 Oil Sleeve Installation . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 6B-43 Upper Drive Shaft Bearing Installation . . . . 6B-43 Forward Gear, Lower Drive Shaft Bearing, Pinion Gear, and Drive Shaft Installation 6B-45 Pinion Gear Depth and Forward Gear Backlash . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 6B-46 Bearing Carrier and Propeller Shaft Installation . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 6B-51 Water Pump Reassembly and Installation 6B-53 Gear Housing Pressure Test . . . . . . . . . . . . 6B-56 Filling Gear Housing With Lubricant . . . . . . . . 6B-57 Gearcase Installation . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 6B-58 Trim Tab Adjustment . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 6B-62 6 B GEAR HOUSING BIGFOOT (2.3:1) Gear Ratio Gearcase Capacity Lubricant Type Forward Gear Number of Teeth Pinion Gear Number of Teeth Pinion Height Pinion Gear Locating Tool Flat Number Disc Number Forward Gear Backlash Backlash Indicating Tool Mark Number Water Pressure @ 800 rpm (Idle) @ 6000 rpm (WOT) Leak Test Pressure 2.31:1 24 fl oz (710 mL) Quicksilver Gear Lube-Premium Blend 30 Spiral/Bevel 13 Spiral/Bevel 0.025 in.

IMPORTANT: Read the following before attempting any repairs. In many cases, disassembly of a sub-assembly may not be necessary until cleaning and inspection reveals that disassembly is required for replacement of one or more components. Service procedure order in this section is a normal disassembly-reassembly sequence. Threaded parts are right hand (RH), unless otherwise indicated. When holding, pressing or driving is required, use soft metal vise jaw protectors or wood for protection of parts. Use a suitable mandrel (one that will contact only the bearing race) when pressing or driving bearings. When compressed air is used to dry a part, verify that no water is present in air line. Bearings All bearings must be cleaned and inspected. Clean bearings with solvent and dry with compressed air. Air should be directed at the bearing so that it passes through the bearing. DO NOT spin bearing with compressed air, as this may cause bearing to score from lack of lubrication. After cleaning, lubricate bearings with Premium Blend Gear Lubricant. DO NOT lubricate tapered bearing cups until after inspection. Inspect all bearings for roughness, catches and bearing race side wear. Work inner bearing race in-and-out, while holding outer race, to check for side wear. When inspecting tapered bearings, determine condition of rollers and inner bearing race by inspecting bearing cup for pitting, scoring, grooves, uneven wear, imbedded particles and/or discoloration from over-heating. Always replace tapered bearing and race as a set. Inspect gear housing for bearing races that have spun in their respective bores. If race(s) have spun, gear housing must be replaced. Roller bearing condition is determined by inspecting the surface of the shaft that the roller bearing supports. Check shaft surface for pitting scoring, grooving, imbedded particles, uneven wear and/or discoloration from overheating. The shaft and bearing must be replaced if such a condition exists. Seals As a normal procedure, all O-rings and oil seals should be replaced without regard to appearance. To prevent leakage around seals, apply Loctite 271 to outer diameter of all metal case seals. When using Loctite on seals or threads, surfaces must be clean and dry. Apply 2-4-C w/Teflon on all O-rings and on I.D. of oil seals. Apply 2-4-C w/Teflon to external surfaces of bearing carrier. Page 6B-10 90-858896 MAY 2000 BIGFOOT GEAR HOUSING Draining and Inspecting Gear Lubricant WARNING If gear housing is installed on engine, to avoid accidental starting, disconnect (and isolate) spark plug leads from spark plugs before working near the propeller. 1. With gear housing in normal running position, place a clean pan under housing and remove the two vent screws and one fill/drain screw (with gaskets). 53922 a b c a-Fill/Drain Screw b-Oil Level Screw c-Vent Screw 2. Inspect gear lubricant for metal particles (lubricant will have a “metal flake” appearance). Drain lube into a clean pan/container. Presence of fine metal particles (resembling powder) in the gear lube indicates normal wear. The presence of metal chips in the gear lube indicates the need for gear housing disassembly and component inspection. 3. Note color of gear lubricant. White or cream color MAY indicate presence of water in lubricant. Gear lubricant which has been drained from a gear case recently in operation will have a yellowish color due to lubricant agitation/aeration. Gear lube which is mixed with assembly lubricant (Special Lube 101 or 2-4-C w/Teflon) will also be creamy white in color. This is normal and should not be confused with the presence of water. If water is suspected to be present in gearcase, a pressure check of gearcase should be made (with no lubricant in gearcase). Gearcase should hold 10 to 12 psi of pressure for 5 minutes without leaking down. Pouring a portion of the gear lubricant into a glass jar and allowing the lubricant to settle will allow any water in the lube to separate and settle to the bottom of the jar. 4. Presence of water in gear lubricant indicates the need for disassembly and inspection of oil seals, seal surfaces, O-rings, water pump gaskets as well as gear housing components for damage. If gearcase is rebuilt, gearcase should be pressure checked before filling with lubricant. 90-858896 MAY 2000 Page 6B-11 BIGFOOT GEAR HOUSING Removal WARNING To prevent accidental engine starting, remove (and isolate) spark plug leads from spark plugs before removing gear housing. IMPORTANT: 90 hp (4-Stroke) models, when removing or installing gearcase carefully guide driveshaft through drive shaft bushing to avoid scoring bushing surface. 1.
