Top 20 Clymer Evinrude/Johnson 2-40 HP Outboards Includes Electric Motors 1973-1990 - B732 Questions & Answers


It may look easy in the book but there are a few things that can go out. Such as the key/roll pin that drives the impeller can slip out on assembly. Water tube out of hole or damaged OR pieces of old impeller in it depending on why you needed to replace it. There are more but if you are not a trained tech it may be time to find one.

I think you have to look at a fuel supply problem. Clogged carbs or bad fuel pump...
Also have a look at your spark plugs...

The power supply is common for all the coils.
Have you switched the coils (wires marked 1 and 2)? If still the same coil non sparking, replace that coil.
If the same output non sparking, check the pulser coil for that cylinder. Invert both pulser coil connections (white red and white black). If the miss is on the same cilinder, replace the cdi. If the miss is on the other cylinder: replace that pulser coil.

I think there is a nut holding the prop to the shaft and there might be a shear pin going through the prop and shaft. Remove those to get the prop off. It may have been on so long, there might be rust and other junk holding it on. Spray with penetrating oil and let sit to loosen the rust.

Sounds like one of the pins on the cable from your transducer is bent where it plugs into the back of the unit. check that first, then ensure the plug is all the way in. If it's not that, it's possible a wire is broken in the cable. You could try the wiggle test. With the unit on, have someone watch the screen and wiggle the wire that you can reach working from one end to the other. if the screen flashes or changes while you do this in a certain spot, there's your problem. This kind of problem usually comes from the wire being tight where it goes around a corner. Heat and vibration will finish the job

If you are really interested, check to see if a library has this book : Chronometer Makers of the World by Tony Mercer. It should have info on the year of manufacturer.
