  2. Re: Allen Head Gearcase Drain/Fill Screw - a marvel

    The drain screws on my '96 150 are hex key as well. You're right, they make it very easy when re-inserting the screws after filling.

    Re: 1975 Johnson 6Hp Gear Oil issue.

    Definitely follow Racer and Boobie's advice. Another possibility is the milky oil the 2nd time was caused by residual moisture in the lower unit that mixed with your new oil. Regardless, the fact...

    Re: 90hp Johnson running warm

    No need to do that. The overboard indicator will unthread. The female fitting that is left is standard hose thread. You can attach a garden hose to that fitting and backflush the engine that way.

    Re: 90hp Johnson running warm

    Yes, with the OIL INJECTION (OMS system) removed or blocked off, 50:1 is the correct mix ratio.


    The steady stream is the overboard indicator and is a way for the operator to confirm the water...

    Re: 2000 150hp Ficht Problem

    A 55 gallon plastic drum cut to size will work to test the engine under back pressure. Make the barrel high enough so that the middle of the m-section is submerged. Fill it with water and leave the...

    Re: 2004 Johnson starting prob.

    Actually if the suction side of the bulb works and the check valve is bad it will still allow it to pump up hard because you're forcing fuel against the needle valves in the fuel bowls. The problem...

    Re: 2004 Johnson starting prob.

    First test the primer bulb before you go too far. I had a similar issue with my '96 Evinrude 150 and found the check valve in the bulb was bad allowing gas to drain back into the fuel tank.

    Re: New guy here, first boat, many questions.

    An old 55 gallon drum or a large plastic trash can works fine too. The main thing is to get the water level correct as Tim mentioned and also leave the hose running at a low flow so you're...

    Re: Fuel problem

    I don't know much about the VRO on this particular engine, but could the OP simply order a standard fuel pump like the one in the link below? This particular pump is for a 1983 150HP which would be...

    Re: New guy here, first boat, many questions.

    If your pistons are black and your compression is that low it's doubtful the issue is a just a head gasket. A de-carb doesn't hurt but those would be horribly stuck rings to give compression that...

    Re: 95 Evinrude 150 motor Boggs after 3000 RPM

    Pull the lower unit and check the shift rod height, it should measure 21 1/4". Once that's set correctly check your shift linkage. You definitely shouldn't have to move the lever around to get into...

    Re: Johnson 70hp 1975 outboard prop

    Good advice from Racer, FDR, and Boobie. 13 1/4 X 17 is a pretty common prop on those engines. I had a 1978 70HP on a 15' tri-hull several years ago. That hull had a good bit of drag so the 17...

    Re: 1978 70 hp Johnson tilt and trim

    I did the exact same thing on the same motor about 20 years ago. Yes, you might need to loosen the transom brackets a bit to give you wiggle room to slide in the T&T unit. Once that's done you can...

    Re: Johnson Outboard repair shops

    No worries. I was the opposite, I had always owned O/B motors and when I got my I/O was baffled why an engine with an electric fuel pump was so hard to start. Then I later learned how to first go...

    Then you most likely have incorrectly set fuel floats. Or, another possibility is the mechanic failed to install a new needle and seat and your old ones are worn allowing fuel to flow past. Either...

    Re: Johnson 115 HP 2 stroke 2004

    What do you mean "flooded with fuel and turns off"? Is fuel coming out the front of the carbs? Or, do you just mean the engine burbles, fouls the plugs, and dies?

    When you rebuilt the carbs did...
