In order to solve the problem I needed to completly break down and diagram the entire motor. Not easy, but it worked. I started with the fuel system and made my way through till I had the motor broke all the way down to the pistons, and rebuilt it after making a diagram of every working and cast part. This included makeing note of part numbers and along with size, shape, and where the parts fit in aspect to the entire motor. In order to do any of this yourself mechanicale dtrafting paper will be needed and a lot of time.

Does my 1979 johnson outboard charge the battery thru the powerpack?

Some models charged through a Magneto, but see if you can find the 1979 Year Manual. I have a 1979 engine myself in a 15Hp which is a Manual start(no battery) and I have a Sailhorse Johnson 8HP which has an electric port and is Manual start. I believe the 8HP would charge a battery as on a Sailboat the running lights needed power. The 8HP could power the lights directly.

Johnson offered options for electric start in lower HP units and options in charging systems to contain costs. You might get a better answer from someone by listing the HP of your motor. I was the original owner of the 15HP and remember the 9.9HP and others in the same Sales brochure. The Sales brochure may advertise more about the charging systems.

Evinrude serial numbers 18902bc 53303

It looks like you have an old one....?

model # and serial # are on the mounting bracket, port side.
1980 and later, the model number will start with "J25" followed by 5 or 6 characters. there might be another letter in front of the "J".

1956 to 1980, most model #'s begin with the horsepower, before that, it's more random.

Commercial, military and racing versions each have their own model # sequence.

Check to see that you have proper air flow through the cowlling. It sounds like it's not getting enough air to the breather.
