    Thank you. Now after many nice trips, i have noticed that fuel consumption is little bit lower, than what it was at the begin of season. Also the throttle is somehow more sensible and engine takes...

  8. Re: 1968 Johnson 3hp JHL23M Compression Test

    1966 model, 3hp, seal is: 308117
    I think it must be same in 1968, since the powerhead and crankshaft have same part numbers as 1966 model.
    But my dealer even didnt find that number from the...
  9. Re: 1968 Johnson 3hp JHL23M Compression Test

    Actually there is one crankshaft seal, the upper one. And also there is oil slinger before the upper seal. My seal was leaking and it was not possible to buy new one from the dealer, i needed to...

    Re: Evinrude Zephyr 4429-4431

    I would also start everything with complete overhaul. Avoid using too much force when trying to get it turn. It is always better to think about things, than use too much force and broke something. I...

    Re: 1972 Evinrude overheating

    It is possible that pistons and rings have some damage, very sad, but it is possible. Cylinder hone-work can be done at home at it is not big deal, but you need take apart whole powerhead. If you...

    Re: 1972 Evinrude overheating

    Hello. Does the engine get seized? Salt water can block the water channels for sure, and also old gaskets which get too old. I know this, because when i was doing my 3hp rebuild work, i cleaned all...

    Re: Carb question

    Make sure that all connections are clean and tight. When putting coils back, make double-check that they really sits in right way, so that inside of the flywheel will not touch the coils heel.

    Re: Carb question

    That is right, and i think that keys to long-life are simple construction, good materials and of course right use with regular service. With right use, i mean that no full throttle just after start,...
