    Re: Coil test on Evinrude 115.

    No, a screwdriver held close to the block is not the right way to do this. Follow Joe's instructions exactly to perform spark tests which requires ALL spark plugs to be removed. Do not disconnect...

    Re: Hoping You Guys Can Help

    Definitely LED. Also, use a secondary battery for the auxiliary lights. Leave your starting battery completely isolated so you don't run the risk of draining it and then you're stuck unable to...
  3. Re: 150 Johnson (2001) Carb - Starts, runs, engine is hot turn off, will not idle on restart

    Your fuel system is losing prime after it sets. Test the primer bulb and look for leaks at the pump and fittings.

    Re: 1988 15 HP Johnson, Speed

    I'd be curious if that jet might...

    Re: 1988 15 HP Johnson, Speed

    Thanks Joe. I'm assuming the jet included with the 'High Altitude Kit' would be smaller to decrease fueling. Is that correct? If so, do you know which jet I.D. that might be?

    Re: 1988 15 HP Johnson, Speed

    Sounds like you're over-propped. As a general rule you typically gain 200RPM @ WOT for each 1" of pitch change. So going to an 8 pitch should bump you up by 400RPM. Do you know what RPM you're...

    Re: 1988 15 HP Johnson, Speed

    Aha....A sea level engine running at high altitude is not happy. You need to confirm that your carbs have been re-jetted properly for 5,000+ feet above sea level. If you're using sea level jets...

    Re: Engine is stalling out after planing out.

    Okay, looks like you've covered a lot of bases. If you're losing prime then it sounds like you have an air leak somewhere.

    Just for grins, remove the primer bulb and test it for suction. You...

    Re: Engine is stalling out after planing out.

    Is the bulb getting sucked flat when this happens? If so you likely have a fuel restriction either in the tank vent or anti-siphon valves (if your tanks has one). You mentioned a fuel selector...

    Re: need a juice boost

    The juice created by an outboard alternator isn't going to be enough to have much effect on a trolling motor battery. Your best bet is to get a Group 31 deep cycle battery and connect it to an...

    Re: Rpm. For 70 3cyl

    26MPH is a little on the low side and is possibly related to the damaged blades.

    As Joe said, you're in the right RPM range already at 5200 so there in't a need to change pitch. Depending on...

    Right, I did not catch that in the OP's post.

  18. Re: e115mlcrd buzzer goes off goes faster if rpms increase

    Slight miscommunication. The '2-finger test' means 2 fingers in a single carb throat. On your 115 you have 4 separate carburetors as shown by the four openings with individual butterflies. The top...
