Re: Oil to gas ratio for idling

The VRO system is different. It does not increase pressure, only volume. It always operates under less pressure than what it takes to blow the needles off their seats. It is a simple fuel pump that happens to deliver oil in a separate chamber of the VRO pump that is operated by a piston rather than...

Re: Acceptable level of gasoline vapor

Fix it yes but is there a source of ignition in the confined space? Yep....every time the motor for the garage door runs! Also a very good idea to disconnect the fuel line from any carbureted engine while the boat/engine is in a garage. If the needle and seat starts leaking in a hot garage the carb...

Re: Anyone have information on this motor?

If you are a car guy and know points style ignitions the engine can be brought back into service. Before selling please go to www.aomci.org and ask about the engine. There are many folks in there that can answer any question you have on the engine and help source parts. That website is the Antique ...

Re: Johnson seahorse 10

Does the engine turn over? Reason I ask is that it has a funny looking line running lengthwise along the transom brackets almost as if that line was a waterline from one of our hurricanes and rising water in the Sanibel area.

MOre than likely it is the rev limiter.

Re: 4hp Johnson Deluxe stalls out.

That carb should have the adjustable low speed in it. Lean it out some at idle until the idle smooths. A bit too far and it should pop lean. Thats okay just richen between 1/8 and 1/4 turn or so and get it back in the sweet spot. I have not seen a cylinder head that badly overheated in a long time!...

Re: 4hp Johnson Deluxe stalls out.

The reason why I suggested a double oil regimen is because it is a 4hp engine. Had the engine been a larger more powerful engine I would have gone the rebuild route. The engine is already damaged and chances are the aluminum has the rings stuck in their grooves but lets see if it will come back som...

Re: 4hp Johnson Deluxe stalls out.

Sorry to break the news to you but those cylinders are anything but normal. The score marks are there and I see lots of them. Also note the difference in piston color around the ports. Read again (above) where I told you that after sitting a few minutes the rotating parts will unstick and you can o...

Re: Gunk in lower unit

Yes, have seen it several times. What you described is exactly right. On a previous service someone did not have the waterpump seal located correctly. You are lucky! Some actually fold the upper lip over and restrict the flow to the powerhead. As far as the junk goes? That is from your excessive id...

Re: 4hp Johnson Deluxe stalls out.

Sounds to me like the engine is seizing. You may have missed the tube when re-assembling the gearcase to the exhaust housing. Hopefully you are running at least a mixture of 50:1 in it? Look for signs of overheat. Discolored paint on the cylinder head. Same on the exhaust cover. Take a temp gun and...

Cool stuff. We've been to several MOB meets at Webster Lake In. One of the guys there has several Clarke Trollers, by far my favorite motor. http://www.mlaoc.ca/uploads/1/0/5/9/10597650/the_clarke_troller.pdf Would you happen to know Allan Nacke?

Re: Tomahawk Nationals 2019

By the way -here are some photos of the other little ELTO I purchased while up there. This engine is totally original except for the spark plug wires and a good clean up. Still visible is the tag on the tank that denotes the engine was tested, signed off, and approved by Ole Evinrude! https://i.pos...

Good to see you again! No, Lesa had to resign..... Her Mom fell twice in 11 months back in Tennessee. Her first fall broke a hip on one side then a leg on the other. Her two sisters, although they are only about 45 minutes away, put the burden on Lesa. She stepped down from the airlines and stepped...

Flowie - Thanks for taking the time to look!
We had a great time up there and brought back a few examples of outboard history to share with those who are interested.
