    Re: 1969 Mercury 4hp jb welded cylinder

    Spray paint it over.----Looks like a backyard tell tale fitting on it too.
  3. Re: Help with the steps to bypass VRO 1987 Evinrude 70HP

    What is the model # of your 70 HP motor ?------I don't think the 70 HP has a spot on the side of the block to mount the pump directly over a pressure pulse port.
  4. Re: Please help me find out the year of this outboard

    I could rebuild that engine from top to bottom without a glance at a manual.------On a 40 year old motor condition is everything.
  5. Re: Please help me find out the year of this outboard

    The decals on the cowling are for the 1981 model year.-----Simple.------Unless this motor comes with warranty I would want to witness / do a compression test.
  6. Re: Help with the steps to bypass VRO 1987 Evinrude 70HP

    Part # of the fuel pump you are going to use ?

  8. Re: Can anyone comment on vintage and HP of this engine?

    The 18 is the only one that would have the ring gear on the flywheel.-----So is it an FD-17 ?----If you just bought this thing the first step is to remove recoil starter.------Then remove inspection...
  9. Re: Can anyone comment on vintage and HP of this engine?

    I did not zoom in on the picture.---Agreed it is the 18 HP model FD-17 I think.-------I do not believe it was going to fall over in that truck / trailer.
  10. Re: Can anyone comment on vintage and HP of this engine?

    These are excellent motors ( if you can do your own repair work ) in the 62 / 63 / 64 vintage.-----It could be a 5-1/2 HP , 10 HP or 18 HP.-----The 18 HP would have 5 bolts that hold the lower unit...
  11. Re: 87ish evinrude 70hp vro runs great after i finally get it started, not a battery issue

    They likely sorted this out 7 years ago !
  12. Re: Picking up a 1987 Evinrude 70HP VRO. About to get started...

    No such thing as a conventional " tune up " on motors anymore.-----Electronic ignition with timing that does not go out of adjustment.----Fixed jet carburetors as well.----No valves to adjust either.

    Re: Johnson TD-20 Sea horse 5hp lower unit

    You might find a wobbler / rotor type pump in front of the propeller.----Those lower units were often filled with grease.
  14. Re: 1982 evinrude 15hp has spark compression and fuel but won’t crank

    Told you it would be an easy fix , and post #3 hinted at that.-----Correct top coil goes to the top !!-----I guess the wires from the powerpack were switched or the coils themselves were switched (...
  15. Re: 1982 evinrude 15hp has spark compression and fuel but won’t crank

    It should start and run ( not well ) on 1 cylinder.----Take it back to the seller !
  16. Re: Picking up a 1987 Evinrude 70HP VRO. About to get started...

    When it left the factory it came off the side of the block.-----There was a service bulletin that came out in 1994 to move it to the top of the block.----It is interesting that there still are some...
  17. Re: Picking up a 1987 Evinrude 70HP VRO. About to get started...

    Look for the tell tale hose coming off the TOP of the block instead of the side of the block.

    Re: gear lever stiff , 1981 35 hp

    Motor must be running or propeller shaft must be tuned when shifting this motor.
  19. Re: 1982 evinrude 15hp has spark compression and fuel but won’t crank

    Have you contacted the seller to show you how to start it.-------Was there a warranty ?
