    Re: Prop for 96 Intruder 150

    Thanks guys. I hadn't thought about buying a cheap aluminum to test then go from there. That's a great idea.

    I remember you mentioning the performance issues with the Lightning gearcase a couple...

    Prop for 96 Intruder 150

    I have a 96 Evinrude intruder 150 (E150GLEDB) on my Ranger 461 VS. The engine is a 20 mid section and has a lightning gear case that some previous owner installed.

    Currently I have a Shooter...
  3. Re: Johnson 115 HP engine / PTT is stuck in the up position.

    Shoot, missed that. My fault for skimming things too quickly and while distracted.
  4. Re: Johnson 115 HP engine / PTT is stuck in the up position.

    There is a manual release screw on the side of the transom bracket. You can insert a flat blade screw driver and turn counter clockwise to relieve the pressure. DO NOT have your hands anywhere near...
  5. Re: 2000 johnson 150 tach check engine light on

    I believe a check engine like will be related to a fuel restriction. There is a vacuum switch in the fuel line and if too much vacuum is sensed it triggers the light.

    That would quite likely...
  6. Re: HIGH Idle Not Going Down- 96 Johnson 130 V4

    Are you doing these test on a set of hose muffs or with the lower unit submerged in a tank? Hose muffs would explain why your idle is high but I don't think that will explain the varying RPM. ...

    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...
  9. 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

    Thanks Joe.

    Looking at the parts diagram it shows a #50 orifice plug for the 9.9 models. http://www.marineengine.com/newparts/part_search.php?part_num=323708

    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: 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...
