You should have some water sprayt with exhaust gasses in the above water exhaust...
There is no separate water pressure indicator like on newer motors.

SOURCE: 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.

Please - spark gap for 4 HP twin two stroke johnson outboard

you should be using multi discharge point plugs in out board motors -not regular car engine plugs and the gap is preset on them
the reason being , with multi point discharge they are less likely to foul from oil and carbon build up
available from any good auto parts shop or marine shop

When running the motor the water goes in cold but comes out hot what could my issue be It is a Johnson 25hp out board

Hi Jason:
This ended up in the washing machine section. ????

Outboard motors are cooled by the water that circulates through them. There is an impeller type pump in the lower end that takes available water and pushes it through the engine. This water collects heat from the engine, and the heated water gets discharged. usually through the centre of the propellor.

What you are describing sounds to me like the intended function of the cooling system.

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

What year is a johnson 4 hp outboard serial number b 7643180 model number bj4brccs

To get the year of Johnson and Evinrude outboards use the word "INTRODUCES". Each letter corresponds to "1234567890" respectfully. It's best to check with a model year reference book, but this motor's model number contains "CC" which would indicate it's a '88.

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.
