Check for a lose or sloppy shift linkage.

SOURCE: we have a 9.5 johnson outboard motor, it works in

I would think that the problem is a worn clutch dog. Drain the gear oil from lower unit. You need to disconnect the shift linkage and pull the lower unit like you would to change the water pump. Then remove waterpump housing and waterpump base. The base will have a seal so you need to be careful and gently and evenly pry the base up until it comes off. Next you need to remove the prop and depending on the year there is a ring screw around the prop shaft that needs removed. Also there is a phillips screw that needs to be removed near the lower gear oil drain plug. That screw holds the shift cradle in place. From here you should be able to slide the drive shaft up and out and the prop shaft should slide out. The clutch dog is the smaller piece in between the two gears that engages fwd and rev. You really should have a mechanic do the work but if you get a book it will help you. Pay very close attention how it comes apart and make sure that you dont mix up the fwd gear with the rev. gear.

SOURCE: 1964 johnson 9.5 hp outboard runs but no reverse.

Pull the stablizer pins and row back to shore, lol j/k. Did you check the linkage to make sure it was working properly, look on the motor itself not on the feel of it..

Hi, did you buy your engine used? Sounds like your gonna have to get the carb or carbs cleaned. Its possible you could have a stopped up fuel filter, or not enough spark but i am guessing its gonna be the carbs. They got some gunk in em i bet. Probably old fuel turned to gunk from setting up. I had the same problem on my 40 horse.

If I remember correctly, it does not matter as they are just one way switches. That is why the new one is not color coded.

Does a 1977 Evinrude 70 horsepower engine hav a charging system?


The 70s Johnson or Evinrude outboards of similar sizes did not have any charging system. I had an old Johnson 50HP (key injection) mounted on an 18Ft Zodiac and I needed to remove and recharge the battery once every couple of weeks. Keep the battery dry and the contacts well greased.
