    Re: How to test stator?

    Are you sure the problem isn't in the (+) and (-) power supply wires to the tach? Is it a plug-in tach? Check the plug connections for corrosion.

    Re: strength of magnets- vintage motors

    Did I answer this question somewhere on another forum? Anyhoo, flywheel magnets made since WWII simply don't go bad.

    Re: 1971 Johnson 125 cooling problem

    Well no wonder you are having trouble. The round plate goes in the black pump housing then the circular piece, then impeller. In other words, it is a wear plate above the impeller, just as the...

    Re: 1971 Johnson 125 cooling problem

    With great respect, I submit that that is not quite correct. When thermostat is closed, water pressure pushes the check valve open and water returns to the pump for recirculation. When thermostat...

    Re: 1971 Johnson 125 cooling problem

    I've never seen one blocked, even here in salt water country. Of course it's had 50 years to crud up.

    Re: 1971 Johnson 125 cooling problem

    Good. They weren't made for bucket cruising.
    Make sure all the parts are in the thermostat. A bit of back pressure from the therm parts helps ensure complete filling of the block. Running it with...

    Re: Help with impeller

    You didn't disconnect the shift rod, did you?

    EDIT: Oops, it slides down a foot? Doesn't sound right.

    Re: 1957 Evinrude 10014

    Old coot here (85). Outboard flywheel magnets made since WWII simply don't go bad, short of running them through the smelter. Look for something else.

    Re: 60652 Sportfour Extension housing hole

    It is a drain hole for the drive shaft isolation tube, and necessary. Don't be plugging it.

    Re: Maybe over thinking

    After reading through this long tale of woe, post #32 finally grabbed my attention. A clean piston is a sign that it might be ingesting water into the cylinder, "steam-cleaning" the piston. I'm...
  16. Re: STOP CALLING THE 70's Vintage, antique etc!!!

    "Antiques" are pre-1949, generally are non-shifting, and cast iron powerheads

    According to the Antique Outboard Club's rules, an outboard over30 years old is a "Classic".
  18. Re: 1968 Evinrude 40 hp shifting/gear questions

    # 31 shift shaft through #7 are the other parts I suggested. #18 clevis might be broken is another possibility. Powerhead removal is necessary to inspect any of it. #18 can be replaced without...
  19. Re: 1968 Evinrude 40 hp shifting/gear questions

    IF our diagnosis from afar is correct, #30 would be the culprit. #17 C-ring holds it in. Powerhead removal is not necessary for this part, but it is somewhat of a PITA to access

  20. Re: 1968 Evinrude 40 hp shifting/gear questions

    See post #3. Is there any jiggle at all at the shifter lever? If not, that likely is where it is seized. But if no jiggle at all, it probably is seized there the shaft goes through the housing. ...
