Question about Sport & Outdoor - Others

Open Question

I have a 1993 Four Winns 180 Freedom with 115 HP Johnson outboard and a fish and ski package. The boat is in excellant condition and has less than 50 hours running time. It was serviced awhile back and was running good. On my last outing the alarm horn started doing regular long beeps and the motor would not get further than mid speed and cut out if attempting to go faster. Also the speedometer was not registering anything even though the tach, fuel, trim etc. was operating. Any suggestions of how to trouble shoot? Anyone have some type of wiring schematic for the dash to make sure some connection isn't loose or detached?

SOURCE: 1974 60hp johnson outboard won't run on full throttle.

Carbs probably need to be cleaned and re-built. Common problem in outboards that havent been run in a while

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.

SOURCE: 1985 40 hp Johnson outboard wouldnt open up and

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.

Looking to repower 1997 Four Winns bowrider with newer outboard engine. What max HP is boat rated for? Found Yamaha 150 XB 2016 for a good price . Will boat work with a 25 inch shaft? Thanks,Kathy


there should be a manufacturers plate attached to the hull of the boat with a number of passengers it can carry and the max hp motor allowed to be fitted
talk with boat shops as they will know the approximate hp for each make of boat and length
while it may be attractive to fit big hp motors to small boats , it in fact makes the boat less sea worthy and makes capsizing easier so get the advice right from the boat shops

save yourself some money and go get a lawn mower solenoid and find a way to mount it yourself. I have done a johnson outboard and a tigershark jet ski this way with no problems.
