    Default Converting 2003 90hp FICHT to premix.

    Hi,
    Is it possible to convert a 2003 90hp FICHT to premix?
    It states in the Clymer manual that it can be done and lists the procedure but I have since been told that this is for earlier NON fuel injection engines and that fuel injected models cannot be converted.
    Can anyone help clarify this please?
    Many thanks

    I have to agree------But what is the model # of your motor ?

    Cheers Fatzbullet, I might just do that, the photographs in it are of an appalling quality anyway.

    Racerone, Thanks. I don't know the model no as the plates were all stolen some time ago when my friend owned it. Is it stamped on the engine anywhere?

    I should add that the reason i was considering converting to premix is because the oil pump is not returning oil to the tank. the lines are not blocked and so are there any other common reasons for this that I should look for?
    Thanks again for your help.
