Rivet repair - leaking water

As stated above first try & rebuck. If that doesn't stop the water, I have found that JB Weld works as long as you are working on a section of the hull that does not flex. The JB Weld will dry rock solid & if the hull flexes it will crack. I have used 3M 5200 with good success.

Bad Starter?

Check for voltage drop at the starter. Check your voltage while cranking the motor over at the battery and then check the voltage at the starter while cranking the motor over. It should be close to the same. If not, your cables are bad or you have a bad connection on the cables between the battery ...

Bad Starter?

I have a 1977 Johnson, 25Hp, electric start Mod#25E77S. Owned the outboard for about 4yrs & has almost always has starting issues. Turn the key & it would strain to turn over, then crank & start. Now it strains to turn over & won't turn over fast enough to start. Here is what I have done so far, che...

Tiller steering

It also may have something to do with the placement of the tiller itself on the outboard. Since the tiller is on the port side of the outboard, if the Capt. sat his (or her) butt on the port side of the boat, the tiller would be close to the Capts. body, & a turn to starboard would be difficult at b...

Replacement Prop Nut

I have a 1977 25Hp Johnson, model#25E77S, & the prop nut has corroded & cracked. I have seen on line that a replacement is a $25 part. Is their any reason why & can't replace it with a stainless steel castle nut that would take a cotter pin, once I measure the size & thread count.

25hp Johnson Needle Valve Adjustment

John - when you get ready to adjust the idle, count how many turns it takes to bottom out from where it is now. if it is 1-1/4 - 1-1/2 turns, take a look at the needle points and seats. I'm just curious as to the present setting. Got back to it yesterday, took 1 1/2 turns to bottom out, turned it d...

25hp Johnson Needle Valve Adjustment

I'll take a close look at the needle valve, & try & determine if it looks worn, I did not think of that. I suspected that the starting point was 1 1/4 or 1 1/2 a turn out, thanks for the reply. I have ordered from MarinEngine in the past. I guess if I simple adjustment doesn't work ( as I know in th...

25hp Johnson Needle Valve Adjustment

I have a 1977 25hp Johnson, Mod#25E77S, that doesn't want to settle into a smooth idle. Before I dig deeper, what is the starting point for the needle valve adjustment. On this carb. the needle valve is on the front of the carb above the fuel bowl.
