I have 1989 Tracker, Evinrude, 25 hp (TE 25 EL CF R)


I upper drain/fill plug on the lower unit is striped (not the pug but the female threads on the lower unit) - what methods can I use to correct this problem?


Thanks

Keenserts or helicoils would work great thread repair options

Always remember you can't catch them from the couch. Unless it's a houseboat then by all means use the couch.
