09 October 2013 - 08:18 AMMuriatic acid from Home Depot for about 1/4 the price of On/Off at West.
Power wash off as much as you can, spray the acid on from a pump sprayer or old spray bottle, let it sit for a few minutes and power wash off with LOTS of fresh water. Be sure to give the trailer a good rinse and keep it away from metal fittings.
Keep it off the skin and out of the eyes and nose.

27 September 2013 - 04:49 PMWhen I turn the key on my Evinrudes but don't engage the starter, the system goes thru it's normal check status but doesn't start.
Normally I'll see each light (check engine, low oil, temp) on my tach light up and hear a short beep, then they all go out, one at a time.
If I leave the key on, after about 30 seconds, and if I am having issues, the check engine light will start to blink in kind of a morse code sequence that is countable and it repeats it's sequence until the key is turned off. I can use these flashes to figure out the check engine codes.
If your check light is going on and staying on, and the manual says fuel restriction, I would try to run the motor on a different portable tank and see how it behaved.
What manual are you using?
I'll check my evinrude manual this weekend and see if it says anything.
Sorry I'm not more help right now, gotta get to my service manual.
If you are using a sealok manual, toss it in the trash and get a Johnson certified.
13 September 2013 - 05:26 PMLooks like California's proposal to raise it's state mandated MW from $8 to$10/hr is going to happen.
So perhaps we'll have a real world model (if California could ever be described as real world)
TGIF fo sure
12 September 2013 - 09:57 PMI have Evinrudes but Johnsons operate pretty much the same.
If you turn the ignition on, but don't turn over the motor, does the check engine light begin to flash in any kind of "series" after it goes out initially ("hard error codes)?
