I am pretty sure that the cables you need to buy are 33C. Any boat shop will stock these for about 40 a piece.

How do you turn a 6hp boat motor to a 8hp motor on a Johnson 1993


cheapest way is to buy a bigger power head
you may achieve the desired power by boring and fitting bigger pistons but you will have to have a long talk with a dealer service center technician to see if that would be feasible to do
as the motor is quite long in the tooth, it may be a better to consider a late model or new unit as the advantages of the later technology will be beneficial in the long run

Need yr for evinrude E8RLNR


Bruce,
Do you have the serial number of the motor? Reason I ask is twofold. Evinrude started using this model number layout as of 1980. Having said this, something is not making sense with the location of the "N" in your model number. Those last two letters as of 1980 are the year. Here is the chart. Letter on top with corresponding year below it.

I N T R O D U C E S
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0

So... Example
1980= CS
1990= ES
2000= SS
2010= IS

You have E8RLNR which breaks down as:
E= Evinrude
8= 8hp
R= Rope start tiller steering
L= 20" shaft
N= 2nd year
R= 4th year

I would expect to see the N in the last spot:
1982= CN
1992= EN
etc.

Serial number is another way to identify the year.
This may hep point you in the right direction. Hope it helps.

I have a short shaft Johnson 6hp outboard, the Jon boat I mounted it on is too deep, and motor doesn't reach water. Is there a way to lower motor? A bracket to lower motor to reach water?


outboard motor manufacturers supply a long shaft leg for just this problem
Talk with your Johnson dealer and check used outboards on e bay
Lowering the whole motor may affect the boat and floatation aspects besides making it harder to steer and start

I have a 1971 85 hp joahnson outboard that is getting fuel but no spark from the plugs it cranks over but no spark... any ideas???


What you have is a bunch of parts that you need. There are very few repair shops that would consider the repair. Being an employee many years ago of such parts....Try googling, Antique motor parts/ johnson. or elaborate as OMC / Evinrude/Johnson. You can still find a parts guy that can help you (very rare) search the web and hope it turnes out Okay! BeeCee

Need to know how to change lower unit on 1971 johnson 25 hp motor


put into nuetral,undo the five bolts around lower unit,take off sideplate halfway down leg casing,loosen the two bolts clamping the gear rods together,then lower unit should slide down[if driveshaft isnt stuck in the crankshaft spline].assembly is reverse,but take care putting water tube back into rubber grommet,and tighten gear rod clamp only after making sure that g/box is in nuetral,when gear lever also in nuetral,or matched together

1971 125els71c johnson stuck in forward


Try taking the shift cable off and just work with the engine. Right now you don't know if the shifter on the boat is stuck. I would then pull on the motor lever to the neutral side and grab the prop(take wires off sparkplugs) and try to turn the prop backwards. If that fails see if the shift rod is jammed under the cover. You may have to pull the lower unit, but you want to know if the shift rod is the culprit or the internal gearbox.
