Help with a 40 HP Rude VRO

Recommended Posts

Helping a buddy get a 1990 40 HP Evinrude running after it sat since 2008. We changed the lowere unit lube. Put in new plugs and got a new battery. When we hooked it up to the battery and tried turning unit over it only clicks. We tried jumping the cemented just to see if it would fire and still just a click. Any ideas?

Thanks - Erik

We have a rebuilt '93 60 VRO that we've had since new.Like Del said will it turn over by hand.Sounds like the starter isn't getting any electricity.Could be a solenoid clickiing & I would check the connections.Forgot to mention that we had the starter rebuilt recently.

Thanks guys. It does turn when we tried a rope. I'm assuming selenoid but not sure. hard to know for sure though. We tried jumping the selenoid but I may have not gotten the best connection. Thanks again.

It could be the switch(ground).Did you try bypassing the switch by going straight from the battery to the solenoid?Maybe even try going right from battery to starter.Is the battery fully charged? Do the lights,live well,bilge work when the switch is on? 2c

Make sure battery cables are clean and tight. Same with all the cables to the solenoid and to the starter and the starter ground. Once you've verified all connections are clean and tight and still have issues, use a 12v test light and start checking for voltage at the solenoid and starter

My brother doesn't know that letting everybody know the outcomes is appreciated wink

We used volt meter and a light tester and found that the starter is the issue, and buddy is going to put a new one in this week. We getting juice just fine, and the solenoid was operating properly, and connections good, and key/controls working.

The starter in the motor was a replacement, hitting it hammer didn't make it go and straight jump to starter didn't either.

Thanks guys!

    • sorry, quoted wrong post.   If one quotes a quote, the system messes up the attribution
    • Water that doesn't come out of a plastic bottle.
    • That's YOUR opinion.    Just remember, everything is fine, in moderation.
    • I do it, have experience with both homers and shooters. I am not a die hard as I was a few years ago but will get back into more when I get a new pup here in the near future.   The birds are not to bad to care for just need food and water. My experience and most troubles have been trying to keep critters out of the pigeon loft. Mink etc like to wreak havoc and it sucks when you lose all your birds to a stupid rodent. Especially the homers after you put in all the work to get them coming back. I haven't had any issues keeping birds at home by the dogs. Best part with the homers is if I train away from home, most times the birds are back home in the loft before I get back lol.   As for working the dog, you probably want to invest in a bird launcher as well especially since your dogs a pointer. Not sure how steady your dog will be or what kind of prey drive it will have. Hopefully you letting it chase birds already didnt cause any issues. I would just slowly introduce them to the pigeons. Might even start with just clipping some flight feathers and throw it in an open area and see how your dog reacts and go from there.   It should point naturally but just use the launcher to steady the dog up. Just look up methods with a check cord etc. when using the launcher. If you want them steady to flush or steady to shot that's up to you but that's way down the road yet. Some of that  pointing should come natural but with this dog being a little older you never know what your gonna get but never too late to start either I guess.    good luck
    • Maybe, We have some of that disease in the family. I'm of the opinion that if you are diabetic the kind of beer you should drink is NO BEER. 
    • Not if you're diabetic.
    • Anyone here have any experience with keeping and using pigeons, especially homers, for dog training?   I have an almost 2 year old Brittany that has not even been out hunting yet.... Last fall he was pretty young yet plus I had some health issues that kept me unable to walk around the woods or fields.   I'm not trying to turn my dog into some kind of world champion hunter or anything. I just want to be able to spend more time, all year long as opposed to only hunting season,  doing the thing he loves to do the most. We already have a great time on a daily basis playing an endless game of fetch and he is the most prolific tennis ball catcher (after one bounce) that I have ever seen. He also spends his days chasing rabbits, birds and squirrels in our fenced in yard along with lounging in his very own pool on hot days. He is trained to do all the normal things like sit, lay, shake, come, etc and I have no doubt that he has lots of natural hunting instinct so this seems to be where the progression of his training should head.   I do live in town but as long as I'm not keeping dozens of birds at one time, I don't think it will be an issue. I will check with the city before proceeding though. I'm thinking of getting about 6 homing pigeon squeakers and keeping them in a hutch in my yard. Is there any problem with the birds being in the same yard as the dog?   I'm thinking I could go out to the country on any given day and plant a few birds for my dog to sniff out. I have access to private property to do this on but I am wondering, is it legal to do this on wildlife management areas? I think I recall that after a certain date it is OK to train dogs?   Anyone else do this? Any advice?
