15HP Evinrude Outboard

Hi Team,
Remember me, I had the seized 15HP Enduro last Sept, successfully fixed by you guys.
My friend has a 15HP Evinrude approx. 1995, the impellor failed whilst running & it overheated....steam issuing forth etc. He replaced the impellor but now it takes a lot of pulling to start, runs well for about 5 mins then cuts out & will not re-start no matter what. Also, if it has a short run all is ok but it will not re-start when still warm. He has replaced the plugs, checked & cleaned the carb. We are guessing harm was done to the cylinders but might it be anything else? Any suggestions welcome before this thing becomes a mooring!
Tommee

Re: 15HP Evinrude Outboard

It's highly likely there is more damage. I picked up a plastic bag on my 5HP Yamaha... only took 30 seconds to cook. Stripped right down and the head gasket had warped and burned. I think that it's a garage job requiring a bit of on the job learning

Seriously, it's not difficult and all parts are available online if you search hard enough. Start by finding an exploded diagram of the engine.

Many thanks for your thoughts Old Salty, pretty much what he was afraid of.
