    Re: Carb Jets 79 70 johnson

    I would run a 15" pitch prop to get closer to 5500 rpms. Those motors do not make a great deal of torque on the low end.
  2. Re: 1976 evinrude 70 hp outboard trim/run switch

    I don't believe that is hooked up to anything if you have the factory hydraulic tilt. It can be used for trailing when you tilt it all the way up the motor can rest on that lever.
  3. Re: '95 Mariner 75hp struggles to get above 3800rpm

    Check your ignition I believe the 95 model still has high speed windings in the stator. Those are known to go bad www.cdielectronics.com has the diagnostic info for your motor.

    Re: 1978 40 hp mercury

    The Mercury website does not go back that far. You have to manually look for your #. Check the pump make sure the key is in and the tube is lined up. And make sure there are no blockages in the...

    Nothing in that pic adjusts the idle!!! That knob in yellow is an adjustment for the idle for cold starts only. #40 in this pic is your idle screw...
  9. Re: Evinrude 15hp model 15604A motor issues

    You need points and condensors for a 1976 15 hp. Buy OEM components and replace all the old with new. That is not a great ignition so it doesn't pay to try and clean just replace them. The gap is...
  10. Re: 1985 Mercury 18 XD fast idle adjustment

    That screw in the carb is the low speed fuel mix not the idle speed screw. Adjust it 1/8" at a time to see if you can get the idle smoother.

    Re: Carb Jets 79 70 johnson

    Do not drill out your jets you can damage them and they will not flow right. You have to richen the jets up because the boyesen reeds flow more air at an idle. The 2 stage reed has a thin light petal...

    Re: 1998 225 neutral safety switch

    They can fail either way. Once you get the box apart you can make sure something did not break.

    Re: Carb Jets 79 70 johnson

    Do not do that whatever you do. The reason you have to go richer on the jets is because the reeds cause a lean condition at an idle. That can cause a lean sneeze which can destroy the reeds. Boyesen...

    Re: 1979 johnson 35 horse

    Get an adjustable spark tester that can be set to different gaps NOT one of the inline lights. Local auto parts stores sell them for around $10. Set the gap to 7/16" and plug it into the plug wire...

    Re: 1982 Evinrude 15 hp sluggish

    wanna bet. Those motors wil run just fine on one cylinder.
  19. Re: Need Help with 1982 Evinrude 15 HP recoil

    You have it assembled wrong. The wire on the pinion gear needs to go over the metal post( next to the red safety )that holds it in place when it goes up. The washer has to be on the bolt.

    Re: 25 to 35 carb swap
