gas that cannot be smelled seen or tasted Sustained exposure to carbon monoxide gas may lead to brain damage or deathCarbon Monoxide is a hazardous gas that is produced when items containing carbon are burned Items such asbut not limited to wood coal gasoline natural gas propane or oil Carbon Monoxide CO is found in manyareas such as any type of internal combustion engines heaters charcoal grills cooking ranges and any otheropen flame appliances There are many possible variables for the accumulation of carbon monoxide Winddirection boat speed vessel proximity to other vessels or structures are just a few of the possible variables thatwould permit exposure to carbon monoxide gases It is important that regular inspections of the exhaust systemare conducted and maintenance is properly performed by a qualified air circulation in all areas of your boat are necessary in order to prevent buildup of carbon monoxidePlease contact your boat manufacturer if you have questions regarding these hazards For more safe boating practices andor carbon monoxide poisoning on recreational boats contact the Marine Manufacturers Association United States Coast Guard200 East Randolph

application For example EFI installed in a inboard skiElectronic Fuel Injection EFI has become the industry boat application will have little in common with EFIstandard for marine engines EFI is the basic term which installed in a jet boat The calibration is tailored to developapplies to any fuel delivery system which uses a computer maximum power and efficiency for each application9to determine how much fuel to add at a specific moment intime Another benefit of fuel injection is the high level of reliability in the components used Generally speaking a carbureted engine begins to deteriorate as soon as it is TW O B ASI C TYP ES purchased Fuel which sits for extended time attacks the carburetor and begins to hamper performance The olderThere are two basic types of EFI used in the marine style points ignition system also breaks down with age dueindustry Throttle Body Injection TBI and Multiport Fuel to friction which wears out the components being used toInjection MPFI MFI PFI etc The TBI system is a wet control spark timing Within 2 or 3 years the fuel andflow design which flows a mixture fuel and air through the spark delivery has deteriorated and the engine must beintake manifold The PFI system flows air through the tuned up in order to restore the original power Also aintake manifold then injects fuel towards the cylinder head side effect of this deterioration is that the engine mayto complete the mixture thus allowing the intake to be actually be damaged by being over or under fueleddesigned to flow air only PFI systems are slightly moreefficient than the TBI systems Combustion requires a EFI also offers the owner a level of protection which olderfinely atomized mixture to ignite In the wet flow TBI system engines did not have as standard features The ECMsome of the fuel will condense or collect on the intake walls monitors the temperature RPMs and other inputs andand then pass into the combustion chamber When solid then makes decisions whether or not to allow the engine tofuel passes into the combustion chamber it is not burned continue to run in the current conditions For example theand subsequently it is passed out the exhaust This is why engine may be running above the ideal RPM if the ECMthe PFI systems are more efficient than the TBI systems detects that the RPM is over the calibrated rev limiter then the ECM will reduce the RPMs to a level which the engine can handle The rev limiter can protect the engine from a HOW IT W OR K S prop which is not correctly matched or is to loose for the applicationThe Engine Control Module ECM refers to the computerwhich makes the necessary calculations to deliver fuel andspark to the engine The ECM relies on input from sensors CAUTION CAUTION CAUTIONand switches to perform its calculations The ECM thensends out its data along its output wires to the various To reduce the chance of personal injury ando r propertyitems which it controls dam age the follow ing instructions m ust be

replacement is necessary thethe proper fuel to be delivered and the proper spark timing part must be replaced with one of the same partto ignite the mixture number or with an equivalent part Do not use a replacement part of lesser qualityThe ECM delivers the fuel through injectors which are The service procedures recommended and solenoids The fuel is injected at high pressures in this manual are

the way both automotive and marine engines are built The is the advent of Electronic Fuel Injection or EFIBefore EFI the carburetor was the most popular and easiest way of supplying fuel to the engine The fuel into the engine by using a mechanical means of linkage throttle plates jets etc While it did anexcellent job for many years it was not efficient and it was adjustable only to a certain point with a it is much different EFI engines are operated by a computer and sophisticated engine calibrations are critical to how much fuel the engine receives and are peculiar to a specific engine typeThe sensors that feed information back to the computer are not adjustable nor can they be repaired The senorsmust be replacedMarine engine technicians receive specialized training in the diagnosing and correcting of EFI A factory trained technician is required to properly diagnose and repair your Marine Power EFI engineto avoid irreparable or permanent engine damage ENGINE PROBLEMSEngine problems are very difficult to attempt to solve over the telephone In most cases the trained eye of agood marine technician is the easiest and fastest way of determining and solving a problem Contacting thedealer distributor or the factory and trying to resolve the problem over the telephone only tends to lengthen thetime of repair ENGINE CAREMost engine problems can be avoided with a good engine maintenance schedule Marine engines are operatingat much higher rpms than automobile vehicles The work that a marine engine does at cruising speed iscomparable to an automobile engine going uphill in a strong headwind all the time The engine parts must workharder and thus require more attention Oil filters sparkplug wires sparkplug distributor rotors anddistributor caps can make all the difference in the world in performance versus being towed back in can be a major contributor to engine damage Old last season fuel loses its octane rating and doesnot create the correct amount of cylinder burn This can cause DETONATION or fuel knock were the fuel willexplode violently in the cylinder The explosion in turn causes overheating or damage to the spark plugspistons and valves Any engine stored for thirty 30 days or longer needs a fuel stablizer We recommend thatSTABIL be added to the fuel per the manufacturers directions This will prevent the formation of harmfulvarnish in the fuel system CRANKCASE OILSome engines are installed on an angle This causes the oil to flow to the back of the oil pan Consequently theoil level on the dipstick may change It is the responsibility of the installer and the owner to determine thecorrect oil dipstick reading To little as well as to much oil will cause engine damage COLD WEATHER OR EXTENDED STORAGEIf you put your boat away for the winter or you will not be using it for an extended length of time it isrecommended that a competent marine service facility be contacted to perform the winterization or storage 15 THIS PAGE LEFT BLANK

Exhaust hoses must havea definite slope to the transom of not less than perfoot of length If pipe is used in the exhaust it must be separately supported so theweight of the pipe is not carried by the
