I have a 1992 Johnson Tracker outboard that shuts down on a high speed plane. It runs great in all other conditions. It almost feels like total electrical loss, but restarts immediately and runs fine as long as I don't open back to full throttle and get on plane. Only seems to happen after a few hours usage like trolling. Any Information you may have is deeply appreciated.

The plugs don't look bad but if i change them it cleans up for a short while. I believe that i have a stuck ring on cyclinder 3 it only has 70 lbs of compression could that be all that is wrong?

My 1980 Johnson 70 HP outboard cranks very hard when cold. After finally starting, if I stop it and restart it cranks normally. I am guessing it is a compression release valve failure, but there is nothing about one in my manual. Is the a compression release valve on this outboard? John jscudder@myfairpoint.net

Hi, I am having problems getting the lower unit off of a 1992 20 hp evinrude. All bolts are out, including 1 nut.It drops about an inch and stops.I have read forums about a screw on drive shaft that has to be removed. I have looked by impellor housing and all over top by shifter on both sides of motor, no luck. Any advise would be appreciated, I have always had merc engines before .I do have a repair manual ordered but did not forsee this difference in motors before i started. Thanks, Jim

Pumping the bulb does not help. What on earth happened between home and the lake? Hope it is a simple fix! Thanks! patricelp81@yahoo.com
