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

Just bought a garman 14 ft. jon boat wide version.has 14hp johnson outboard 2 cycle motor 2 clycle.(manual) start.i have replaced spark plugs.i took it out twice now .First time out it started right...

Check fuel filter first to see if there is any trash or water clogging it up. Make sure the gas tank is venting and the fuel connections are secure. Check both cylinders for spark, the gap should be around .030". If motor cranks up and tries to die again pump the primer bubble to see if this helps, if it helps this would indicate a fuel pump problem, if not then the first thing I would do is clean the carburater which is more than likely what is wrong.

1985 40 hp Johnson outboard wouldnt open up and

sounds like your mix is off and it's fowling the plugs. probably too rich. make sure the level in your carb bowls isn't too high. Really sounds like you should clean and bench set your carbs. Especially if a plug change helps but doesn't last, then it's got to be your fuel mix, or maybe timing.

Oil & Gasoline

Hi Thomas, you can find bar oil for the chain at just about any hardware store. Just tell them you need chainsaw bar oil. The oil that mixes with the gasoline is called 2- cycle mix. They will have that also. You can find the 2- cycle mix at a lot of gas stations too but a lot of guys caution not to use the 2 - cycle mix that is made for outboard motors. . Hope that answered your questions.
