  1. Re: Problem with fuel system and motor dying. Help Please!

    Welcome. Have you checked out the TFI unit? Perhaps bad fuel has plugged it up. Same goes for injectors, but they are less likely, because it does fire for a short time. I have removed and cleaned...

    Re: What is the best way.

    Yes, good simple maintenance is to keep a close eye on the lower unit lube. Bottom end repairs can really cut in to your, "nights out with the wife" fund. I charge plenty for lower unit welding and...
  3. Re: 50 hp short shaft - should I build with tiller or remote?

    Yes most certainly. Racer, your right. It shows an L for longshaft here. Having to change the exhaust housing and other parts to convert, is not a simple task. Seems like the seller has a few parts...

    Re: 1983 mercury shift/throttle issues...

    If you disconnect the cables, does the throttle operate freely at both the motor and at the control?

    Re: What is the best way.

    For 2 grand you should get alot more than lame excuses, my friend. How's the grease look in the lower unit?
  6. Re: 50 hp short shaft - should I build with tiller or remote?

    Definitely keep it a remote. Controls are a bit more affordable than to convert to a tiller. Of you can't find a good price on controls/cables, you can call Tim's Outboard in Hackensack MN @ 218 682...

    Re: Engine seems to be running rich

    Yes this is a sometimes complexing problem. The pump will still work, but that vacuum will scoop up the excess fuel into just one cylinder. I have run into this fairly often....and the owner is ready...

    Re: 1983 mercury shift/throttle issues...

    Maybe time for a new set of controls/cables. If you don't want to buy new try calling Tim's outboard in Hackensack Minnesota at 218-682-2331 talk with Teresa, Calley, Mike, or Dan. Have your cable...

    Re: What is the best way.

    Too cold at 60 degrees? You need to find a better shop. If you know how to set up a video clip, let us see how fast it's cranking over. That has been mentioned by Racer in post #2.....slow cranking...

    Re: 1.2 1989 Evinrude Junior

    Try Tim's Outboard in Hackensack MN, if that doesn't work. 218 682 2331. Have model # ready. Some other OMC caps may work. It's probably the same as the 2 hp also. I have used caps off those old...

    Re: Evinrude 35hp woes

    What year are we working on and is it a saltwater motor? No, a low battery will not fry the starter. If your battery is not at least 12.4 volts, it should be charged to 12.6 volts. Lube up bendix and...

    Re: Engine seems to be running rich

    So is the little tube injured? Did you try new plugs gapped at between .025 and .030? I run about .028 on my points/mag ignitions. If everything is right, spark should easily jump 3/8" with a sharp...

    Re: Engine seems to be running rich

    Did you check the compression? Did you replace the plugs? Running in a barrel it must have cowling off or it will always be rich. I often even supply fresh air with a fan in order to keep the motor...
  16. Re: Why doesn’t my 89 15HP have and idle adjust screw?

    If the carb has been changed, who knows what else was changed. The plastic top on the newer carbs often cracks right through the low speed needle bore. I grind a little bit then epoxy them with JB...
  17. Re: Why doesn’t my 89 15HP have and idle adjust screw?

    Is there a hole in your existing arm for a screw?
    To answer your question, no I don't extend the timing arm. I notch the plastic stopper cam on the black plastic shifter/interlock.....to allow a...
  18. Re: Best prop for going slow - trolling with a 2 stroke

    Lower pitch means higher RPM and slower boat speed in most cases. It depends on the boat and load. But given the same boat and load....same motor, same prop diameter, same number of blades, and same...
  19. Re: 1965 Johnson 5hp LD-10 Original Colors/Paint (help!)

    Yes sir. I have used it several times nice matches. I believe the color change in white hues came between 1963 and 1964.
    Gotta clean out my message box. Saved stuff for records sake. Fun...

    Re: 1976 6hp Evinrude high thrust prop?

    Hi, found an 8.6 by 5.5 new prop at Tim's Outboard in Hackensack MN. $50. Do you think it would work? The 1976, 6 horse I would ship out east is like brand new, very low hours, mint. The guys...
