Re: Johnson 48 SPL Reverse "Lock"

Those cylinders gave some trouble but so did the cable. You may get lucky and in your case it just be the cable. If so you may just replace it and then lock it in the down position and be good to go. I don't remember what the cable costs but those cyls were/are pricey and kinda aggravating to work o...

Re: Johnson 48 SPL Reverse "Lock"

You locked it with that lever on the handle to the trim assist. You will have to make a lock and just lock it in the down position and use the T&T.

He must be in some state that that is banning 2 stroke use from his post, that wouldn't help him much.

Re: 4hp Johnson Deluxe stalls out.

Pappy got to you before I did and has forgotten more than I know but he is correct about that bore. He also knows way more than I do about reviving old motors, I wouldn't have thought about the double oil and trying to see if it was salvageable. I would have went into recovery mode before you did mo...

Re: 4hp Johnson Deluxe stalls out.

How do the cylinder walls look? No scratches, gouges etc? Visible score line?

Re: SeaKing head gasket question

I had an old one that ran at 16:1 quite honestly it didn't smoke as bad as yours did in that short vid and when it did it wasn't that white. It was hard to tell what was going on in that vid as short as it was with no sound. It did indicate water in the combustion chamber but again with no sound I c...

Re: SeaKing head gasket question

How long did you run it in the test tank? If the head gasket was blown the piston should be almost white on top where the water was getting in and blowing the carbon off?

Re: 1981 Evinrude 50hp Questions

It most likely was 90 wt gear oil, many folks cut corners and use that, don't. As long as it wasn't milky don't worry. If you haven't filled it back just let it drain good and fill it will a good quality LU lube. Make sure to open your top (level) plug and fill from the bottom.

Re: Vance Manufacturing Jack Plates

As an FYI to all, this unit does not fit well with a 25/30 Yamaha 3 cylinder. I'm now glad I held off on installing until I got a bigger motor because I don't think it would have worked. On top of that I got a Panther TnT unit with the motor and it has a BIA transom pattern which is larger than thi...
