Not knowing what year it is...Light and alarm? Reason: overheat low oil etc. check water flow..water pump. The motor is most likily going into S.L.O.W mode. its a fail safe system. Last possibile reason ..CDI box and or stator.. pull plugs check compression...should be 120-150 lbs.

I had the same problem with a Johnson 150, which has the same power block as the 175. I had this rough running problem for a couple of years. The solution was to replace the CDI pack, the fuel bulb and all of the fuel lines. My engine now runs like a dream. The shop charged me $700 for this work and parts.

Try mounting it properly,cavitation plate 1/2 inch below bottom of boat.An old motor like that many things could cause a lack of power.

How do i replace the water pump in a 2005 150 hp evinrude outboard motor


Take the cowling off. Also drop the foot. There wil be a stainless linkage rod that runs the length of the motor that you will have undo to drop the foot. The water impeller will be inside a stainless casing that you will have to disassemble.

1974 johnson outboard motor 25hp stalls when hiting high end


Not familiar with that specific motor but had similar vintage smaller HP Johnsons. From my experience it sounds like it could be that the high speed carb adjustment is too lean. What I would try is running the backing off the high speed screw 1/4 turn to 3/4 turn, then test. If works better, screw back in in 1/8 turn increments until the problem recurs, then back out 1/4 turn and leave it there.

1974 60hp johnson outboard won't run on full throttle under load , max 10%. New fuel and filters ect. The motor is old but has very low hours.


Carbs probably need to be cleaned and re-built. Common problem in outboards that havent been run in a while
