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.
