  1. Re: 1962 Evinrude 40HP Idles Rough/Misses at High Speed

    Seems like we're birds of a feather on various tricks Tim. The other function.... after a bout of blabber & prostate cancer, at about 3am I just reach down and feel that urostomy thing. If it's full,...

  3. Re: 1962 Evinrude 40HP Idles Rough/Misses at High Speed

    The armature plate that the points etc set upon.... Does it have a wobble to it, up on one side, down on the other, back & forth?? If so, the point setting will definitely change as the...

    Very easily.... Simply have the engine in a vertical running position (Engine NOT Running) and pump the fuel primer bulb up hard while observing the carburetor. While holding pressure on the primer...

    Re: Qd-14 1953

    Just looking thru my factory copy of the QD-14 1953 10hp Johnson Parts Manual, mainly the carburetor section... yeah, I recall working on those things back when they were about nine or ten years old....

    Re: Starter running with switch off

    A new starter solenoid sticking?... Not likely.

    More likely a internal flaw within the ignition switch "B" (battery" terminal to "S" (solenoid) terminal.

    With the starter cranking on its own,...
  7. Re: 1978 55HP (55EL78S) Throttle linkage setup

    1 - The screw on the vertical throttle arm is simply a "Stop Screw" to be set when you have the idle exactly where you want it.... It's purpose is simply to prevent the idle from dropping lower due...
  8. Re: 1978 55HP (55EL78S) Throttle linkage setup

    The "Idle Timing" is what is needed. I checked my books... it is indeed 3 degrees +/- 1 degree so you're okay anywhere between 2 to 4 degrees, however 3 degrees would be perfect.

    Don't mess with...

  11. Re: 90 Evinrude 150HP - Connecting these two wires gives me the constant alarm. One is frm Oil Reser

    Connecting wires here and there with no knowledge of where those wires lead to is a road to financial disaster, possible fire, explosion, etc. Fortunately the two wires you connected simply ground...
  12. Re: 1977 evinrude 70hp flywheel hard to turn

    Ah.... Bummer! But as with any 42 year old engine, this happens. Hopefully you got it for a song, so to speak and you can recoup your loss by parting it out.
  13. Re: 1978 55HP (55EL78S) Throttle linkage setup

    If you're speaking of setting the "Idle Timing" and the "Link & Synchronization".... What "Degree Setting" does your manual state?

    Setting the length of this rod??... I assume you're speaking of...

    Re: 2001 jhonson 70hp hard cold start

    You cannot guess about this. You need to determine exactly if you have spark or you do not when this problem occurs.

    Re: Prop help on 1969 55hp evinrude

    Look closely.... That "F" is most likely a "P" for "Pitch"... and if it is a 19 pitch prop, it is quite unlikely to be suitable for a 55hp engine.

    Is it contained within a regular white OMC type control box, a more or less chrome top console single lever control, simply attached thru a hole in the dash or console?
