    Re: 1979 70HP Johnson Outboard Manual Tilt

    Agreed. I used to have a 1978 70HP on a previous boat and that was not fun trying to lift that motor up, either from in the boat or outside.

    As Scott said, find a parts motor that has the power...

    Re: Bypass key for Evinrude 90?

    So you have a standard flush mount control like this?

    I'm sure you could extend the harness from the control box to a Console...

    Re: WIring for tach

    Good plan on the tach. I think there are 2 gauges that are vitally important:
    #1 Tach
    #2 Water pressure Gauge

    Over the Independence Holiday I was down at my dock and watched one of the lake...

    Re: WIring for tach

    Yes, I believe those should be the only 3 wires you need. The harness for your control box will also fit up to any generic 6-pulse tach if the one you have happens to not work.

    Re: field rescue

    What is good? Please post numbers for each cylinder.


    An engine with poor spark can run and even 'sound good' when it's out of the water running on hose muffs. Out of the water there is no load...

    Re: WIring for tach

    That looks like the back side of a tach that has system check. On the face, are there places where it says "HOT", 'Low oil', 'CHK ENG', and 'NO OIL'? If so, I'm not sure the year of your engine is...

    Re: Johnson 150 25 Shift rod measurement

    Yes in neutral. I made a jig for mine using a piece of 3/4" x 3/4" angle metal. I drilled a hole at the exact height then threaded in a 2" long #8 machine screw. That allowed me to thread the rod...

    Re: Help for a newbie!

    What the model #'s and what HP are these engines?

    I'm imagining on this boat those are probably higher HP engines which means they are quite likely FICHT engines. If so, there is no 'idle screw'...

    Re: Gas tank question

    Nope, that's exactly what the tanks are supposed to do. The valves are one way, only allowing air into the tanks. They swell because the vent valve closes in the outward direction to prevent...

    Re: 94 fast strike 150hp not starting

    Are you using the primer when you start again? Essentially you have a 'cold' motor after setting for 40 minutes and it might need a primer shot to get started.
  14. Re: Braided Fuel Hose Replacement (For Johnson Carburetor)

    I'm not sure about the spec of hose you ordered. I've used fuel injection rated automotive hose on a jet ski before without any issues, but I can't say that's the correct thing to do.
  15. Re: Braided Fuel Hose Replacement (For Johnson Carburetor)

    I believe the primary difference between marine and automotive application fuel hose is permeability and fire rating. You might find a fuel hose that meets your diameter then research the...

    You need to do a spark gap test to make sure you're getting strong fire to each cylinder.

    Re: New Etec 90 Reliability?

    Among several things the injector is completely different. FICHT injectors used Springs to stay closed and solenoid to open. The E-TEC uses a solenoid for both so you get more precise fuel delivery. ...

    Re: 83 90 hp johnson

    What is the age/condition of the water pump? It's possible you're not getting good flow and the engine is overheating. Do you get a beep from the alarm when you start the engine? If not you either...
