Default Evinrude Outboard Rebuild Kit?

A friend has given me a 1981 2hp Evinrude to put on my little 8ft Pelican Bass Raider I like to throw in small ponds.

To make a long story short, after letting the cylinder soak all night in ATF and PB Blaster hoping to free it up, I took it apart this morning to find the connecting rod broken.

I'm sure rebuild kits are cheap, but I'm having trouble finding one. I found the connecting rod alone for like $20, but might as well rebuild the entire thing...

Model #- E2RCRS
Serial #- B101342

Thanks!

I don't think they make kits as such, you just buy the parts you need, for such a small motor I would just look for another one.

Just as a side note, why were you soaking it in anything if it had a broken connecting rod? you didn't do any troubleshooting at all?

No sir, last night when he gave the motor to me I tried to spin it but it wouldn't budge.. So I just let the cylinder soak overnight to see if it would free up.. It didn't, so this morning I took it apart and found the connecting rod broken. He didn't know if it ran or not.

Everything else looks fine, even the piston. Just the rod needs replacing.. For $25 and a little work, I see no need in just finding a new motor... Plus, it's a little project to mess around with. Also clean the carb of coarse... But after taking the whole thing apart, everything looks good. Just the rod needs replacing.. Only reason I ask about a rebuild kit because if the rod is just $25, then it's got to be cheap to just rebuild all together.

as said you will need to buy parts, no kit for that little guy, buy a new piston/ring set while you have it apart....crank seals..... every gasket too
get yourself a cheap ultrasonic cleaner for the carb and small parts, I got one at harbor freight and it was the only way I could get my carbs clean and working right again.
take your time and hopefully you will have a nice little outboard when you are done.

Ask yourself why did the rod break.

Iíve had a couple of those small motors, theyíre basically disposable at this age.

I had one that sat for years, my dad bought it new in the 196? somethings. Mid 90s it needed new rod bearings and stuff from sitting so long. I priced it out then at $200 for just the big parts. I bought another one for $150 that ran perfect.

I did put the old one back together with the sketchy parts and it ran. Sold at a garage sale for $25, I let them know the condition it was in.

If if you just want a project itís fine, if want to go out on the water, buy something that runs.

Thank your friend for unloading his junk on you. Take the motor to metal recycling site.

Motor was his dads years ago... He didn't know if it ran or not and just gave it to me...... Not sure why it's so hard to ask where to get parts at without someone telling to throw it away.. I WANT to rebuild it. If I wasn't up to spending the time or money then yeah I'd toss it away.... Again, y'all get this in your head... I WANT to use my time and my money, to rebuild it....

It hasn't ran in over 3 years.... I'll be sure to post a vid of it running on the water when I'm finished

Thank you bottom drift for giving me the answer I was looking for.

It's #5 $46.51, plus any other parts you need from that page.

Should go well. Little engines are easy to work on. Just label everything and put it back the same way it came out. And don't forget to do a break-in run sequence.
Best wishes.

Where are you located? Iíve got a Evinrude 2hp in the garage collecting dust. Probably needs the carb done but it did run fine.

If you do rebuild it go all out, not just the broken parts. The piston is likely seized in the cylinder and broke the rod. The cylinder, rod and piston seem available but not the crankshaft . See if the crank race looks ok or grooved , lumpy.

LOL, thank you. Not trying to be an asshole, but I WANT to rebuild it.. lol. If i didn't want a project to mess with then yeah I agree, trash it.

The piston is seized in the cylinder, which probably like you said caused the broken rod. Crank is fine.

So probably the cylinder/piston/rod, clean the carb, throw it back together
