How do I hook up hoses on a johnson fuel filter

I have a 1985 johnson 90hp outboard ,which I am changing from a VRO fuel pump to a conventional pump which has 3 hose inlets. To which outlets do I hook up ,fuel in, fuel out, & pulse to the new pump? I know which hose is which,but not where it goes on new filter.

SOURCE: Size of fuel hose

Mate.If the fuel hoes is no good,cut off about 1inch of hose and take to a hose supply shop.It will be cheaper than buying a 'real' part.Or take the whole thing.Make sure you tell them it's a fuel line to get the correct type of hose.Hope this helps

hi obviously a fuel fault someware / when motors are winterised the fuel system is usualy emptied, this causes gaskets and diaphrams to dry out and split try it with the tank filler off /replace the diaphram in the carb and i am pretty shure that will solve the problem /nb / as this motor has stood for a time and does not do much work /outboards love work check the water pump impellor and put a spoonful of oil in a full tank of gas hope this helps merlin v12

SOURCE: 6hp Johnson outboard stalls & quits

go to an auto parts store and get a can of gasoline additive called seafoam. Read the label so you know how much to add to your 6 gallon tank. This stuff works wonders on outboard motors.

SOURCE: vro pump on a 92 johnson 150hp

If you are having problems with the VRO then I would just remove or disable it and mix your own fuel. It is cheaper and there have been alot of problems with those going out while the engine is running and then they sieze their engine because of the faulty VRO. Mix your fuel 50:1 and you will be able to run all day!

I am ready to purchase a boat with a 1990 Johnson 150 hp vro outboard motor. I have read that there may be an oil problem with this model and what the cost may be to correct it. Thanks Al


The following link may help you decide. It is a discussion of Variable Ratio Oiler vs Premix oil and fuel.
There are arguments on both sides that you should read.

https://www.thehulltruth.com/boating-forum/7389-oil-injection-premix-outboard.html


This person likes the VRO, but has a list of maintenance requirements to keep it working well. With a 17 year old engine There are a lot of points of failure that need to be considered. If the VRO fails the engine self destructs.

Keep your VRO.

The Trailer Boats Magazine article in Feb 2000 has lots of good tips to keep your VRO running. Here is a short summary:

Sediment and/or water can build up on the bottom of the oil tank. Draw a sample from the bottom with a turkey baster and squirt it into a jar. If it lookt like you have water and/or dirt, remove and drain the tank. Clean throughly, replace filter and purge/replace the oil line. This sounds like a good thing to do annually.

Replace clear oil cap with black (#176217)

Inspect all oil lines carefully ! If oil lines are more than a few years old (or are smooth vinyl) replace with 1/4" ID rubber (#333485). Avoid tie wraps and worm gear clamps in favor of OEM rachet clamps (#333654).

Inspect all vaccuum lines carefully !! If more than a few years old, replace them.

Inspect all fuel lines carefully !! Clogged filters, anti-siphon valves, kinked lines will cause problems.

Install blue pulse limiter (#435009) to protect VRO from backfires.

Don't run carbs dry as you will suck in too much oil !

There are lots more tips that are model year specific, so go to your local library.

40 Hp Johnson outboard motors stalls out after a few minutes running then takes forever to start again


May likely be one of two problems:

1. Fuel flow: Make sure fuel tank vent is open and not blocked while engine running. Check primer bulb is working and no air leaks along hose anywhere. Check function of fuel pump and ensure fuel is getting to the cylinders.

2. Overheating: Check engine isn't overheating and that water pump is operating properly while engine is running.
