Always follow common shop safety practices. If you have not had training related to common shop safety practices, you should do so to protect yourself, as well as the people around you.
It is understood that this instruction sheet may be translated into other languages. In the event of any discrepancy, the English version shall prevail.
DO NOT do any repairs until you have read the instructions and checked the pictures relating to the repairs.
Be careful, and never rush or guess a service procedure. Human error is caused by many factors: carelessness, fatigue, overload, preoccupation, unfamiliarity with the product, and drugs and alcohol use, to name a few. Damage to a boat and outboard can be fixed in a short period of time, but injury or death has a lasting effect.
When replacement parts are required, use Evinrude/Johnson Genuine Parts or parts with equivalent characteristics, including type, strength and material. Using substandard parts could result in injury or product malfunction.
Torque wrench tightening specifications must be strictly followed. Replace any locking fastener (locknut or patch screw) if its locking feature becomes weak. If replacement is specified or required because the locking fastener has become weak, use only authorized Evinrude/Johnson Genuine Parts.
If you use procedures or service tools that are not recommended in this instruction sheet, YOU ALONE must decide if your actions might injure people or damage the outboard.
TO THE INSTALLER: Give this sheet to the owner. Advise the owner of any special operation or maintenance information contained in the instructions.
TO THE OWNER: Save these instructions in your owner’s kit. This sheet contains information important to the future use and maintenance of your engine.
