The final decision was made after trying to dock the boat and being unable to make reverse work so I ended up driving to the ramp and loading the boat, using a paddle in wind is no substitute for a working reverse. Agreed, that is an electric shift motor and it is very important that The correct oil be used. Benefits: You can expect lower fuel consumption with this outboard. However, I can't seem to get it to shift into gear and get the prop to spin. The cylinder still has fire and gas feed. Mine wouldn't work in reverse and you had to push the buttons many times to get fwd to work. In this case we have found the older of these outboards to be much more reliable than the newer models.

I would really appreciate some help. So the switch up by the throttle is messed up, is that something hard to find to replace? There are few adjustments you can make to the carburetor of the 40-horsepower Johnson. Using the pliers again push in the contacks after cleaning both sides till they are spotless. This motor has a set of plane fins integrated right on the skeg. This is why we have decided to re-manufacture and offer it to you.
Unless your gearcase oil is green, it isn't that. Bend the staples up and lift the rubber back cover off the 3 terminals, leave the staples in one end and fold the rubber inside out back toward the button side and out of the way, there is no need to remove it all the way. Take the needle noses and at the base of the blank terminals and the 3 terminals you need to squeeze in the crimped brass on both sides of each terminal and the blank terminals too. With the cover off you can see the 2 contacts that allow fwd and rev to operate. An eight-character model number indicates an engine made between 1999 and the present. As with all Evinrude outboards we re-build, we have removed the oil injection.
If your buttons don't work, you can't break it cause it's broke already, so, no pressure. Disconnect these two wires and applly 12 volts from the battery to one and pull the engine through by hand or starter. Fuel contamination can be prevented by installing a Racor fuel filter and checking it regularly. On the back of the engine below the lower plug you will see two wires, one is blue and the other one green. Shift into neutral accidentally when going full speed worse 3. I got it home, and immediately started working on it, needless to say it's a project boat. Don't be jumping to conclusions.
While you have it out , bend the contact arm down some so you have good spring pressure to maintain the contact, it dosen't take much. Re: 1969 40 Horse Evinrude Lower Unit Gear Oil Nearly 24 hours gone and no reply. This motor has been fully tested and is ready to be placed on the back of your boat!

It has been our experience that from 1989 and up, the lower units and the manual tilts have been very problematic in the 40-50 hp Evinrude and Johnsons. Perfect for those who need more power than a 25 hp. Those crimps are what holds the fiber board cover over the internals.
Upon traveling 1350 miles this year for the annual pike fishing derby, my 40 hp Evinrude decided to only run on one cylinder. If anyone has any specs on the motor itself or any insight on the situation I would really appreciate it. . This is a very popular outboard since you get 40 horsepower at the weight of a 25 hp weight is, 150 lbs.

If it is the head gasket, is that a big issue to replace and is there a manual that does step by step with pull-apart diagrams? Online references such as those published by Marine Engine feature a list of motors, categorized by horsepower, model number and year of manufacture.
