    Re: Lower Unit Gear Oil

    Yes, that's all. It's also not a bad idea to get new washers for both screws.

    Re: Remanufactured or new Repower

    I didn't really mean to imply the improved fuel economy justifies the cost of a new OB. You're right that you'll never recover the cost of the OB on fuel savings alone. I didn't mean that fuel was...

    Re: Remanufactured or new Repower

    If you have the $$, you want the features/warranty/etc of a newer technology outboard, and you're going to keep the boat for a long then it can make sense to repower with something new. You also...

    Re: Spark plug socket size.

    Yep, Racer is right. My bad.

    I didn't pay attention to the model number and was thinking he was asking about an old 2-stroke 50HP. The NGK plugs used in this engine were a different socket...

    Re: 1979 evinrude doing funny things

    Either your needle valves or seats in the carbs are worn or you don't have the float level set properly. When squeezing the primer you should eventually reach a point where the fuel bowls are full...

    Re: 2008 Evinrude ETEC 225 HO lower unit help

    You might ask to have this thread moved out to the main J/E forum to get more views and responses.

    To my knowledge there are standard and performance gearcases but I don't know about any HD...

    Re: Spark plug socket size.

    I think it should just be a 13/16" spark plug socket.

    Re: Both Engines in Limp Mode (4.3L EFI)

    Do you have 1 or 2 fuel tanks? If 2 tanks, does the problem happen with both? Have you checked your fuel tank vent(s) to make sure they aren't clogged and causing a vacuum as fuel is drawn out. ...

    Re: Engine stalling after making a few runs

    Have you tried to prime the fuel bulb prior to starting the engine then taking off? My 1996 Evinrude 150 was acting similar to yours. I tested the primer bulb and found the check valve was bad and...
  13. Re: Power trim not working, will trim tabs help?

    That would sort of work but is not a great solution. It definitely sounds like your trim limit switch has failed. You could potentially set your trim at the desired planing attitude while in...

    Re: 1979 evinrude doing funny things

    Did you run a wire through each orifice? A clean bowl doesn't necessarily mean the fuel circuits for high and low speed are clear.



    "Doing well" has a very specific measurement. You need to...

    Re: 1979 evinrude doing funny things

    Yep, I would question any carb that has sat for 3 years, especially if old fuel was left in the bowls to evaporate. Just to check things off the list I would test spark just to verify it's good.

    Re: 1979 70HP Johnson Outboard Manual Tilt

    Agreed. I used to have a 1978 70HP on a previous boat and that was not fun trying to lift that motor up, either from in the boat or outside.

    As Scott said, find a parts motor that has the power...

    Re: WIring for tach

    Good plan on the tach. I think there are 2 gauges that are vitally important:
    #1 Tach
    #2 Water pressure Gauge
