SOURCE: 35hp Johnson evinrude outboard not running at full potential

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.

SOURCE: Gear shifter locked in forward gear

If the gear lever is loose,it's the gear connection rod that you disconnect to do a g/box drop.If its not loose, drop the g/box off the leg and the first thing you find might be the problem.A loose bolt,a jammed shifter.It will probably be a connection problem than a g/box problemHope this helps

SOURCE: motor top filled with water and died. what

It shouldn't cause any problems , once it dries out, it should fire back up and run, get the water out of the carbs if you can, or make sure there is no water in there, where did the water come from? You might have to prime the pistons with fresh gas to get it to fire, make sure the plugs are dry and clean. We had a honda pump on a barge and it went in the river, we grabbed the hose and pulled it back up, fired right up and ran fine all day. What an engine. Hope this helps.

1996 evinrude outboard stalls when put in gear idles good in neutral & runs out good in gear but stalls idling in gear


Start by adjusting your idle mixture screw. Start at 1 1/2 turns out and with the engine in gear at an idle slowly turn the screw clockwise until the engine starts to die, then back off a half turn and that will be your proper setting. If you need to you can bump up your idle stop screw just a touch so it will hold also.
