If the split is just behind the prop then wont interfear with gears ? ! does the control lever move the connections on the engine ? if not look inside the control box , if yes then remove gear cable on the engine and move the linkage by hand and check if it goes in F n R , if yes then cable stretched or out of adjustment ! if not then remove the gearbox and check the gear rod ! mite have to strip the box and check inside !

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.

Hi, make sure you are using a genuine pin and if so check the back of the prop where the pin sits for wear, regards Phil.

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

85 40hp evinrude stuck in forward?


Evinrude used a shift mechanism located in the lower unit that is actuated by a rod up to the linkage in the motor housing. It could be stuck anywhere along the way or the gear that shifts on the shaft could be immobile due to rust and corrosion.

You may want to find a blowup of your exact model via a Google search. Then starting from the top look for your problem. be sure to mark the position of anything adjustable so you can at least get it back to the original position when you reassemble it.

Have just bought a 1993 90hp v4 johnson and would like to know what type of oil to use in the oil resevior


Any tcw3 two stroke oil . I am a marine mechanic and I would recommend disconnecting the vro which is the oil injection. Just disconnect the oil line and then mix the oil in the gas 50 to 1. The vro is known for going out and taking your motor with it

Trying to find out correct year of manufacture for a 115 johnson V4 but dont know where the serial no. is? I have found a no. on the mounting bracket.


All of the engine model numbers will look like this:
115MLCI 115 1981 115MLCN 115 1982 115MLCO 115 1985 115MLCR 115 1984 115MLCS 115 1980 115MLCT 115 1983 115MLES 115 1990 115TLCI-115TXCI 115 1981 115TLCN-115TXCN 115 1982 115TLCO 115 1985 115TLCR-115TXCR 115 1984 115TLCS-115TXCS 115 1980 115TLCT-115TXCT 115 1983 115TLES-115TXES 115 1990

It should be on the port side of the transom bracket(On the engine to boat mounting bracket). If not, look around on the engine block for a small silver plug (It will look like a shiny freeze plug) There will be 2 sets of numbers... one of the above numbers and your serial number will be the second number.

Have a Johnson 130 leaking gear oil on bottom of foot and bottom full of water


What year model? Tools you will need. (1)gear case pressure tester from any outboard dealer. why buy and not build. matching the threads on the drain plugs.(1) detergent and water in a spray bottle. troubleshooting step (1) Remove lower unit from engine as if you were changing the impeller.(2) secure lower unit in a holder so you can drain oil and do visual checks.(3)remove drain plug and vent plug, drain oil(4) reinstall lower drain plug and put pressure tester into vent plug hole(5) pressurize gear case(6)with spray bottle spray gear case at all seals and joints just like you would spray a tire looking for a leak. detergent will bubble at leak.(7) if you find leak at a seal were you will need to remove drive shaft or propeller shaft you will have to buy removal tools and a Clymer repair manuel from your local dealer.(8) hopefully the leak is at the shift shaft or the drain and vent plugs so you wont have to buy special tools to replace seals.(9)if you find a crack in the case have it welded at you local outboard dealer
