Evinrude Outboard

I just picked up a used Evenirude (2.3 hp / model HE2RENR) this weekend for my dingy. Does anyone have any experience with this particular model?

Evinrude

That is a 1992 Evinrude 2.3. Trouble free motors. No real tune up other than new gas and a new Champion QL87YC spark plug. Was there anything specific you had a question about?

I bought it without an owner's manual. When I cranked it up (attached to my 8 foot inflatable dink) it was in gear and thrusting! Good thing I was down low or I'd have taken a dunk - not good this time of year up here. I have to believe that there's something akin to a 'neutral', but I couldn't find it. Pushes the boat REAL well once it's going, it just seems a little abrupt, starting off like that.

Evinrude

I am pretty sure that your model does not have any sort of shift mechanism. It does just start in gear. That is very common for the smaller outboards. I have had a couple of these type motors ( a Johnson and a Suzuki) and they really aren't a problem if you make sure not to give it very much throttle when you start it. After it has been warmed up it should easily start first pull at a low throttle setting. Good luck.

I suppose it'll be something I'll have to get used to. I just don't want that 'steep learning curve putting me overboard.

Thanks for your great info, though.

Cheers,

Dave

how do i get it to start though?

I'm having problems with my Evinrude 2.3 hp HE2RENR engine. I can't get it to turn over. It has good compression. But just doesn't want to start. I'm turing the fuel switch on the side to on, putting the throttle to the circle area, opening up the choke and then nothing no matter how hard I pull. any tips? I had it running last weekend but not this weekend. Hmmmm.....
