Customer Question

Hi. My name is ***** *****. I have a 1999 Evinrude Ficht 115 and I am having some issues with the oil injection system. I rebuilt the motor due to a oil issue. I have the diagnostic software and I am trying to purge/prime the oil system, but I can't get any oil past the oil injector. I have verified oil flow all the way up to the oil injector. I have replaced the oil injector as well. The oil injector clicks when initiated by the diagnostic software, but there is no oil flow. The motor starts and idles fine, but there is no oil flowing. Any suggestions?
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: I have the specific service manual for this motor, and I have verified everything is connected correctly. I have also replaced the oil pressure sensor and the pressure regulator. Do you have any suggestions on how to proceed?
JA: OK got it. Last thing — Marine Mechanics generally expect a deposit of about $26 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied).

Thank you for allowing me to assist you, my name is Joe and I will be happy to assist you with your concern today.

To have oil to the injector and no air but no oil out of the injector indicates injector is either not working or no oil pressure to force to/through the injector. The click sounds like it sound be activating the injector and you would want to check there is nothing preventing flow as well as checking oil is being fed to the injector correctly.

Thank you!
