    Default Johnson/Evinrude remote controls 1972 50 hp

    Hi. This might be a dumb question, but I'll ask it anyways. I've got a 1972 50 hp Evinrude, with the push button forward-reverse controls. Can I change over to the single lever Johnson controls for a 50 hp (same year)?

    thanks, Bill

    I went and looked at both motors and they both work the same way, so I would guess that they are the same ......Evinrude has push buttons and Johnson has a switch in the control box, so yes I think it will work... learn something new everyday....

    If it's the same year yes as long as it's from another outboard and not stern drive.

    Yes, the johnson control box is from a 72 outboard as well, and it's on the same style/length boat as mine. I just don't like fumbling for push buttons when I am used to pulling the handle back. Makes for lousy docking!!!

    thanks, that will be one of my many boat projects this summer
