40hp Evinrude

Question

opsirc

I have a 1984 40hp evinrude, when to start this year after it has been sitting for 5yrs. It was drawing so much juice that it melted one one the terminals off. The only thing different is I disconnected the oil injection system because it was in constant alarm. Did this after talking to the service dept at a outboard motor dealership. Everything else is the same, when i parked it would turn over with no problem, now hard turning. Anyone have idea i am out of them.

 

Thanks

when was the most recent time it started normally?   You did start mixing oil in gas when you disconnected the injection system, right?

This terminal could have been comprised, cracked or corroded to cause this.
