Question about Cars & Trucks
I have a 1997 60 HP Johnson Outboard which had a head bolt sheared off. I have drilled the old stub out am am ready to retap the hole but it seems I have gone in too far with the pilote hole and when i started the motor water has been slowly feeding out from this hole! Can iI just re thread this hole and carry on or do I need to strip the head off first. I have been unable to pull up anything from your webb site to show me wahts behind this area?? Any advise would be greatfully recieved!! Thank you Ted Page.

If you have gone into the water jacket that is a problem
take the head off and use an thread insert in the hole
that brings it back to standard stud size
on reassembly use a quality thread sealer on the stud threads and tension correctly
leave it to set and do not retension head
there are many engines where the head studs go into the water jackets and all use a quality thread sealer during assembly

If you have carburetors your float is stuck. It can happen more than it should and if it is a smaller engine, laying it on its side can cause it.
You would have to look at the float and imagine which way to lay the engine down in the future. The float could also be bad. You would take it out and float it in Gas, not water to see if it sinks.
If this is a big HP outboard and injected your fuel regulator is bad.
