1985 40 hp Johnson outboard wouldnt open up and

I bought 1985 40 hp Johnson outboard, wouldnt open up and plane out, it would bogg down at a certain point and would run fine at lower speed. I changed the plugs and it ran fine for 6 outings last year. worked from launch ramp to dock this spring and started acting up again. Changed plugs and still the same.use to be oil injected but was disconnected before I bought. Mix oil in gas. Tried running some seafoam in gas for about 3 gallons.

    Thanks for your input.I took the carbs apart and they were really clean, we blew them out and checked the non adjustable orfices - clean. I didnt bench set carbs, but blew thru right side up and inverted and seats work (look new). Changed out gas and put in new 50:1 mix. Put in new plugs. Same old thing. Guess I will have to have the timing checked. When I put the muffs on it to start, I noticed there was water coming out of the lower unit by the lead weight in back. There was oil residue in that area also. I trailer with motor tipped and transom saver. It could have come from carbs? I unhook my gas line now and run out most of the gas when putting boat on trailer now. Thanks for your help.

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.

After running my johnson 4hp 2s for a couple of hours in the bay it starting giving a strange noise and then cut out.i managed to get it started again but coudnt get above half speed.


Hey Pete.. this sounds serious.... will it rev up while in neutral? If it revs freely and high.. the power head should be ok.. if it will NOT rev up freely and high.. STOP - you are causing more damage..
Check the compression with a good gauge..it should be 125psi minimum.. with no more than 10 psi difference between any two cylinders.. DO this WITH the THROTTLE WIDE OPEN...
Can you turn the propeller by hand while it is in neutral?..Of not.. this is the problem.

50 hp 4 stroke Johnson 2004 starts easy and idles smoothly.Runs very rough when speeding up.when changing oil in crankcase - no oil in oil filter.What happened?


First..

No oil in the oil filter period?? Does the opening of the oil filter face down.. like the oil will drain out if sitting still?
..You need to talk to a qualified professional.. this could be very serious or SOP..

No water flowing out my 40hp envenrude outboard water exaust port


Plossibly clogged intakes (grim in intakes) or thermostats not opening. I would suggest pulling the lower unit and then your thermostat housing and use a water hose to back-flush it out. Also check the thermostats in boiling water to make certain opening.

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.

Outboard motor won't run under load


I have 1969 5hp Johnson. Starts and runs good, but will only push a 14ft row boat slow at low to medium rpm. When at higher rpm the the motor just revs up and the boat slows down to almost nothing just like it has seaweed around prop.Any help would be great.
