  1. Re: Why doesn’t my 89 15HP have and idle adjust screw?

    That looks Ike a 70s carb set up. The motor that came off of would have had a side knob for the idle adjustment. Look under the flywheel and see if there is a screw under there for idle adjustment.
  2. Re: I have searched - coming up empty - motor has an identity crisis

    like racer said main jet will tell you what it is
  3. Re: I have searched - coming up empty - motor has an identity crisis

    Maybe you can find the WMC # on the carb. Those are definitely different.
  4. Re: I have searched - coming up empty - motor has an identity crisis

    Sorry I should have clarified that. You will need to figure out what your bore size is to determine which block you have. The serial # will help you with that you should be able to find the piston...

    Re: Fuel tank restoration

    I would usually coat the inside of them as well. To clean them I use E 85 let it sit for a week and dump it. THe e85 is then good for bonfires.
  6. Re: Decarbonizing Motors and Cooling System Repairs

    Really? Let me tell you what your shop supervisor saw when he looked at that set up. He saw something he would never have to work on and told you what you wanted to hear. It is the nature of the...

    I don't need to be a shop manager to see that boat is underpowered, and the fact he didn't makes him suspect. Get a tach and prop it correctly or you will be back here asking what happened

    Holy underpowered batman
  9. Re: Fuel pump conversion done correctly??? - 1993 Johnson 70 HP

    Is the pulse limiter removed?
  10. Re: I have searched - coming up empty - motor has an identity crisis

    If that is a 1986 motor it CANNOT be a 15 hp because the 15 hp uses a bigger block. The 6/8/9.9 motors use a common block in the mid 80s to early/mid 90s, after that the 15/9.9 used the same block....

  12. Re: Decarbonizing Motors and Cooling System Repairs

    Looks like their may have been muffs on that motor. You still cant properly test a cooling system with muffs.

    Re: Want problems? Use ethanol!

    Give it up. Tim just wants to blame everything on ethanol. Motor fell off the boat must be ethanol that done it. Forgot to mix gas in oil ethanol done it. OOPs I hit a rock that damn ethanol again....
  16. Re: Prop moves out 1/4 " when placed in Reverse ?

    That sounds normal. If the motor is not running you will need to make it go into gear by moving the prop. How does it shift when it is running?

    Re: 40 HP ELO 6E9-450911 Throttle Cables

    Find the teleflex cables that look like yours. The ones you have are aftermarket and may have a part # on them. They were used for a lot of years.

    Re: Which Fuel Pump Do I Use?

    Do you want to have the oil injection again? If so you need a replacement VRO Pump. If not the one that Vic suggested will work. Or for about 1/2 the price you can use the double pump of the early V6
