    Re: 77 Evinrude 85 h.p , will not idle

    I strongly suspect that what you think is a tilt/trim unit is actually the early model "Tilt" only setup. If so, that is designed just for raising and lowering the engine when the engine is NOT...
  2. Re: Help. 1956 30 hp johnson has me stumped....

    Normally, if there was no remote control setup... and all there was, was the engine with the tiller handle and a manual starter... there would be a rubber push button that would kill the ignition...

    Have some pre-mix fuel/oil in a spray bottle and spray it directly into the carburetor throat with the throttle wide open as a priming shot.

    Have the throttle grip turned as far as it will go with...

  5. Re: Help. 1956 30 hp johnson has me stumped....

    The low (slow) speed adjustable needle valve is wet?? How can that be?... The slow speed needle valve is the top needle valve.

    Your mention of the above make me wonder if you have the needle...

    Re: 12V to Primer when switch is in run?

    Yeah, that's the correct wiring setup. If you have 12v being applied to the primer solenoid without the key being pressed in... that indicates a internally shorted ignition switch.
  7. Re: 1965 Evinrude 3hp confusion about the high speed needle

    Quote edited to keep it simple.



    1 - No, we prefer to call it by its proper name to avoid confusion "High Speed Jet" although it is an orifice.

    2 - The high speed jet came into being in 1961...
  8. Re: johnson 120 VRO 88, Idle issue? Running Rich? Stalling

    That has not been my experience!... A fine spray of water entering a cylinder will most definitely show up as white smoke. Excessive fuel/oil will show up with a heavily colored smoke effect, usually...
  9. Re: 1965 Evinrude 3hp confusion about the high speed needle

    The 1965 3hp Evinrude/Johnson comes equipped with a brass high speed "Jet"... just clean and reinstall it.

    If you have the optional adjustable needle valve kit, just adjust it as you would the...

    Re: 97 Evinrude Vindicator 225

    The stator under the flywheel... the two large black coils located at the rear portion of it... Are they dripping a sticky looking substance down on the powerhead area? If so (keeping it simple),...

    Re: 1998 Johnson 50HP

    Is that battery in good condition?

    That model has no solenoid... it has instead two (2) relays. Trace the electric PTT motor's wiring back to the PTT junction box (normally under the hood) to...
  12. Re: 1999 e90fplssr sputters and dies at idle

    NOTE: The model number you entered (E90FPLSSR) that engine is a 2000 model, not a 1999 model.

    The speedometer is driven by air pressure... Any problem with this item is of no concern.

    White smoke indicates "water".
  15. Re: 89 evinrude 60hp.. slow crank.. won’t start

    The engine must crank over at least 300 rpm in order for the stator to provide the needed AC voltage to the powerpack capacitor.

    Also..... Inspect the stator under the flywheel closely to see if...

    Re: 12V to Primer when switch is in run?

    You don't say which pins (lettered terminals) have zero continuity... That would help, but i assume you're speaking of pin B and pin C?

    What color wire is attached to the fuel primer solenoid?...
