How do you advance idle rpm?

Hello R Lynn Johnson,

This question is submitted under Cars & Trucks?

Timing and Idle screw... I don't think so...?

Actually sounds like you have been adjusting the CHOKE...

I hope you are COUNTING TURNS... Because what you are describing about "timing" certainly does NOT sound like you are working on any car I've ever seen.

It would be wise to set everything back where you started...

(engine & transmission)... you are fiddling with and PERHAPS WE COULD STAND A CHANCE OF TELLING you WHICH SCREW is your idle speed screw (if any).

Else I would strongly recommend you buy the books for your car and study up...

find the bottom carb , see where the linkage from the remote cable moves the lever on the side of the engine then disconnect the cable from the remotes ! on the bottom carb there should be a screw to adjust the tickover where the linkage meets the carb linkage , turn it in 2 turns then with water attatched to water intake on gearbox turned on start the engine , it mite be slightly high or low pending ! set at 900rpm , rev engine several times back to tickover and if ok then refit throttle cable , cable should be pushing lever against its stop and then when you select forward gear it shouldnt move till you throttle up ! when in water start engine and select forward gear and tickover should be 7 to 800rpm and idle ok if not adjust till ok !

The windshield wipers to my Ford focus stopped working today. They worked for a little while & then stopped in the up position. You can hear the motor working but they don't move. You can move them...

Your wiper linkage has come off the wiper motor. To reconnect the linkage, first remove the wiped arms, the remove the wiped cowl. The wiper cowl bolts are located under the hood and screws through the spaces in the cowl. Reconnect linkage, reinstall cowl, reinstall wiped arms.

What is the corrct fuel mix for 2005 25hp johnson

2 stroke is rated at 100 to 1... but I always run it a little more like 50 to 1. I would rather put plugs in it than burn up a motor for lack of oil......

I have a 1970's 25hp Johnson outboard motor. Last

Hello Adam.
If your propeller is OK, your lower unit will need some repair. It may be as simple as a clutch dog worn and not engaging the gear. Usually they give warnings of problems by jumping out of gear though.
Other possibilities are broken driveshaft, propshaft, or gears. If it goes into reverse the shafts are OK and the clutch and forward gear become suspect.
It was common for these engines to break at the top of the driveshaft where they were tapered.This would give you no motion at all and no previous warning of a problem.
Check the gear lube for metal particles and signs of water intrusion. I hope your repair is an easy one.

What is the trick to removing the leg from a 25 hp johnson 2005, cant find were to disconect the shift linkage

Its either up under the cowl near the bottom of the powerhead, or you might have to put the outboard in gear using the lever to drop the leg an extra inch, which would then expose a shift linkage holding nut in the gap above the leg connecting point.

check for spark against the block. they sell a test kit, i think harbor freight sells one, where you hook it in line and should be able to see if it is firing or not.

1974 johnson outboard motor 25hp stalls when hiting high end

Not familiar with that specific motor but had similar vintage smaller HP Johnsons. From my experience it sounds like it could be that the high speed carb adjustment is too lean. What I would try is running the backing off the high speed screw 1/4 turn to 3/4 turn, then test. If works better, screw back in in 1/8 turn increments until the problem recurs, then back out 1/4 turn and leave it there.
