Evinrude Mechanic

3 posts in this topic

Does anyone know of a good Evinrude mechanic in the Twin Cities area. A buddy of mine had his 2000 115 Ficht dump out on him (us) in Canada. He brought it in to a local dealership and on their initial test they told him one of the cylinders didn't have any compression. They called him back later in the the week and told him the motor was now running fine even though they did not fix anything. They couldn't tell him any possible causes to the motor stalling or the lack of compression during initial testing. Needless to say, he doesn't have a lot of confidence in motor after it stranded us the Canadian wilderness and then seemingly fixed itself. I was wondering if someone could recommend a solid mechanic that might offer some help to this problem.

Hoovey,
I can't recommend a mechanic in your area since I live in s.e. ia., but when you find one he should be able to hook up a lap top to the motor and a find what happened.

Tom at Forest Lake Motor Sports has always treated me, and my 60hp Johnson, right. He gets me in on short notice and back on the lake in no time. If I remember right they are an Evinrude dealer but it doesn't matter since Evinrude and Johnson are one in the same. Good luck.

    • Thanks for the link.
    •   Well Friday, Saturday, and Sunday have all come and gone. And nothing came, because your link is Zero Hedge.     I just took that straight from Wikipedia. It's amazing home much those last few words just keep showing up.
    • http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/promises/trumpometer/   This is what you are looking for.
    •   Sounds like the House of Reps. who pulled their AHCA (Ryan/Trump  Care) so when their fellow Rep. voted it down every one would know who was against or for it. Now none of them have to explain how they voted, the same as how some on here weasel out of explaining their statements, by reverting to name calling.
    • caught my first fish with a lamprey on it and also got a 35 inch pike on a salamander. 
         
    •   Bafflegab! Hot darn! I like that! Is that like my psychobabble, aka Mayospeak , or to quote Thurber, Pussgrapple or even Cussgravy? I haveta remember that!  "Bafflegab found in this one"?! Go look on the health thread, where yer buddy juicedup gets yammering away at you! ! Now THERE's some  real balderdash and twaddle! Yes, some good, informative threads used to exist here! Once in awhile, you can even run across one! Gotta look hard! 
    • The bite was on last week. With 4 guys we caught over 700 fish in 3.5 days.  And I don't care if anyone believes me or not.  Actually 700 is probably a conservative estimate because we had to have averaged at least 50 fish per person per day and it was probably much more than that.  Yes some of them were 10" saugers but there were many 16 to 20"+ walleye and the crappie size was the nicest I've seen in 4 years with no keepers under 12" and several 13-14" with 2 at 15.25".  All of the pavement pounding and scouting this winter and last week really paid off on this trip!  This is the most hardcore group of guys I fish with and they really know how to put the smackdown on these fish.   
    •   If you guys need fishing advice just ask. I've never had a problem sharing. 
    • Any time I have ever tried that it creates havoc with the sonar until it floats back up the hole and is removed but if anyone has a fix for this let me know.
