Evinrude 50 hp. 2000

The other day, shortly after starting my Evinrude 50 hp oil injected 2 stroke motor with carbs, the motor died and wouldn’t restart. Today, I starting troubleshooting the problem. Pulled the plugs: they were wet. Laid a plug against the engine block and turned the motor over and the plug sparked. put the plugs back in. Decided to drain the carb float bowls. The liquid that came out of the carb float bowls was mostly oil. This outboard has oil injection. What would cause a high concentration of oil in the carb float bowls of an oil injected outboard motor? Thank you.

VRO problem, NEW
by: Donny

I was having the same issue, I just decided to replace the vro with a fuel pump. It solved the oversupply of oil issue. I still don't know what broke in the vro, could have been a simple air leak in the fuel line. I would start with replacing fuel lines if you want to keep the vro.
