I have a 1996 50 h.p. Johnson 3 cylinder. It is oil injected.

My question is: Is the oil tank suppose to be pressurized?

The reason I ask is, over storage period, the tank builds enough pressure to purge straight oil into the carbs, and then in the spring I have to drain the carbs in order for the motor to run.

Is it a pressurized system? And if so, what would happen if the tank wasn't pressurized (i.e. loose cap)?

thanks in advance,

Jeff (PCG)

No I didn't. I treated the gasonline with Sea foam and then ran the motor.

Yes, excellent water discharge.

I have a 25HP Yamaha, 1994.
It has a rubber cap on the oil tank, non pressurized.
I don't drain the carbs either, just run sea-foam into the gas.
It smokes a little when you start it, other than that it runs good.

The motor stalls, like the ignition was killed, at 2/3 throttle or more.....the first 3 times it started without any hesitation and ran fine....Today it stalled and the SLOW system was activated upon restart.

?????

My brother used to have a '93 40 hp Johnson that would kill the same way. It would be running fine, then it would periodically kill on him when the motor was running pretty much wide open. He had to have the engine totally rebuilt because for some reason, the motor wasn't getting oil. I don't know how your oil reservior is set up. But his had a pressure bulb on it just like the gas tank. I can't remember the reason why the oil wasn't getting through on his. Hopefully this isn't your problem, or it'll be a pretty costly repair.

Just an idea: Is the gas line secure at both ends? Same type of thing happened with my auger this winter and the gas line was not fully secure and was leaking.
Good luck.

A good bud of mine has a 94 60 Johnson, for these exact reasons he disconnected the vro and mixes gas now. I know, a pain with onboard tank, but he allways knows there is oil.

However, now he has a simalar problem, idles fine, but get it up on plane and the thing dies. he talked to a mech and was told either the impeller is shot or the high temp warning doo hicky is shot. he knows the impeller is ok (1 yr old), so hes trying the latter. FYI

Yeah,
Could be the high temp warning sensor is bad....or the impeller, even though I have good water discharge...although when it did it the first 3 times, why didn't the SLOW system kick in? So many questions.

I know it is getting oil at low speeds, because it smokes enough.. I can't vouch for high speeds...although there isn't suppose to be anything that shuts down the motor like that. But who knows...Nothing is fact when dealing with electronics, that's for sure.

I have an oil injected '94 40hp Johnson. It has the alarm that goes off if the engine isn't recieving oil. I just got this engine with a pontoon boat last year. I thought about getting rid of the inject and mixing in the oil with the gas. Is it common that the oil inject fails? Are there any problems associated with disconnecting the injection system? Thanks

After I bought my boat/engine w/vro and had the motor fail. I researched this quite a bit. I found that for the most part the vro is actually quite reliable, but....If your not always checking for oil comsumption or get lazy on the maintenance, you could be in big trouble. This way i KNOW I am getting oil. Some people though may also forget to mix their oil (this has never happened to anyone right?). Then the disconnect is worthless. I think it is a personal preference. But I can't say I would like anyone to have to go through having to rebuild their engine like I had to, knowing it could have been prevented pretty easily.
Oh, and also I have learned that the latest pumps/injection systems made are more reliable then the first generation. It may be worth upgrading.

    • Excellent summer fishing.  Charters catching strong numbers.  Jig/minnow or jig/leech and bouncers with spinners with crawlers or minnows still producing walleyes. When the wind is right for pulling spinners, they have been lights out.  Walleyes being caught in varying depths, 7-31' of water.  Some shallow shorelines still producing. Pike mixed in all over the lake.    Walleyes in the Rainy River with a better morning/evening bite.  Trolling cranks or pulling spinners a good idea to cover more water. Smallmouth bass are out and about along shorelines and feeder streams. Sturgeon fishing opens again Saturday, July 1st.     Up at the NW Angle, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s. Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches or crankbaits along the weed line. Crawlers on a  gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 - 26 feet. On the Canadian side, bottom bouncers and spinners have been filling the livewells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have produced nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing picking up with high 40” class fish being caught with a few 50's from shallow bottom bays or adjacent to them.
    • Busy time of year out there so if u get canceled it is hard to rebook especially with the smaller operations. Bummer though as it can be a lot of fun if they are biting. 
    • I understand that you never really know when the Warriors are going to fall off or if they even will.  Hopefully the Wolves can make the playoffs and gain some experience, maybe teach the rest of the team how to play defense, so that in a few years we are knocking on the door and can lure in a top free agent to put us over the edge.  Its just an awful tough time to be a good team right now with the Warriors so clearly heads and shoulders above everyone else.
    • I couldn't have said it better myself pikestabber!  We have to go out there and do what we can now and not try to set up for "when the warriors are old" cuz the way the NBA is going who knows what players may join forces to set up the next "Warriors" squad.  Heck maybe the Wolves will be that next team !!  I just really love the addition of Butler and from the sounds of it we are not done yet and I am excited to see what will happen in free agency and if we could really land the likes of Kyle Lowry one of the other PG's that are hitting the FA market.  Nice to see the Wolves making moves!!
    • I would ask Getanet where to get some good ones!   Pork Belly Stinks Started by Getanet, May 1
    • So that means you ALMOST caught a fish!!   Real bummer!
    • I never use soap to clean the racks. Just put them on a hot grill for a few minutes and use a brush to get the majority off.    Hmmm, Gin flavored ham, mmmmmmmm.     
    • My local meat market will sell you one. They did for a friend of mine about a year ago. If you want to take a trip to Belle Plaine I can hook you up, but you should be able to find it at a meat market near you also.
    • Looking for any intel one would be willing to share for bass fishing on Long Lake just south of Park Rapids.  Our family will be headed there in a couple of weeks.  From what I gather its predominately a walleye lake.  I'm just trying to get a general feel of the lake and hopefully shorten the learning curve.   Thanks, BK
