Question about Sport & Outdoor - Others

Open Question

Old Tecumseh 2 cycle outboard marine motor (3.0hp) won't start. I bought it used last week with a Jon boat. It's spray painted black so I can't recover any model numbers. Any ideas on where to go to get help? The front cover of the carb is missing and the previous owner believes there is something wrong with the needle. I was hoping to find some info on Tecumseh's web site but I'm lost without model numbers.

SOURCE: trouble starting old Mantis tiller 9012 - don't have a manuel -

Mantis has the owners manuals in pdf format available for download on its website. The tillers are here (I hope the link to the tiller group works...if not, just go to the main site and look for "owners manuals" link.

Also, you can call a number and get a representative who usually can help at the numbers listed there, find authorized service people if its not something you can do yourself, order parts and find detailed schematics in the owners manuals. My dog actually ate mine. LOL. But they are free, the owners manuals, unlike other places that charge you for them like they were a "part".

SOURCE: motor not pushing boat after two thousand rpm's

The prop is cavitating. The outdrive is not trimed under enough or the prop is damaged (providing it is the correct prop.)

Has suzuki marine improved there paint


you are in cars and trucks with boat question, failure....
what paint we cant guess the object you are alluding to.
but Ill answer.
all paint does that, now and forever.
the sun always wins. always.
no paint on earth lasts forever,
why not go to any paint shop for RV and ask them.
or any pro vehicle paint shop.
hopefully they will not giggle most will put their SALES hat
and go, gee ours dont fade?(lies)
then sell you a paint job.

marine what, jet ski, must we guess, or outboard motor casings
or hulls?? what?

keep the vehicle garaged, paint last near forerver
or buy a tarp.
but outside, under MR. SOL, its doomed.

What oil do I use in a 1972 Starcraft Boat? Thank you.


Back during the time these were made, you would be advised to use a 30 HD.
This oil would be appropriate for all use except real cold weather, when a 20W-20 would be better. ( below 40 degrees farenheit)
(Do not use a non-detergent.)
A few years later, the recommendation changed to 10W-30.

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

Free download for repair manual for an Evinrude 1987 40HP outboard motor


My outboard motor is old and used.When I went to run it for the first time everything worked except when I went to put it in forward gear the boat went slowly but when I gave it more gas the engine just reved up but the boat wasn't going any faster.The motor is 40hp gale model.I think because it is bought used the prop is not the right one and it seems like it's slipping as I go faster.
I would appreciate any feedback on this problem.

Is a minn kota 35 suitable on a 10ft rowing boat . I normally row on my local lake when fishing , each trip consist of no more than 1 hour of rowing


I have a 30# thrust and it pushes my 14' jon boat well. I think a 35# motor should work well for your boat, unless there are very high winds, in which case, any motor will have trouble, even your outboard.
