Looking for a dealer with old Johnson parts

9 posts in this topic

Hi,

I live in Eagan and was hoping somebody could tell me of a Johnson dealer in the general vicinity where I can try and find a part for my 1973 motor.

Thanks in advance!

Did you try Twin City Outboards? They most times have what I have needed.

Not sure if you ever get up to LOW much but if you do, try get a hold of Rick or Eric at Rainy River Marina north of Baudette. Rick is an old pro with outboards and has some parts and quite a few old motors laying around so maybe he could help you out...

When reading the title I thought that you could ask any really old dude to check his pants for and old Johnson....but then I realized you were asking a different type question....

Thanks for the replies. I haven't contacted any of them yet.

I had an odd size fuel line split (has a different diameter at each end), and I was able to temporarily fix it, but it's not a long-term solution. I'm 33 and the motor is older than I am, shocked but runs great. I sent an email to OMC to see if they still have the part (I found it listed in a catalog) and am waiting to hear back. If I don't hear back in a few days, I'll start calling the local dealers.

Thanks again!

    • Word of caution !! Lake Superior will generate a east wind for days and the fish bite great. I think it has something to do with the air sinking out in the center and it pushes in all directions and in Duluth we get the wind out of the east.
    • This weekend I got a chance to use the 6" Nils with my Dewalt. That was crazy fast and had both of my brothers asking more questions about the whole setup. I believe the 6" cuts faster then my 8" Nils with the Tanaka motor and I thought that was fast.
    • Some possibilities in the St. Paul / SE metro area.   Joe's sporting goods in St. Paul Blue Ribbon Bait in Oakdale Ace Hardware in IGH   There is another bait shop off of HWY 10 in Newport, but I'm not sure if it's still there and google can't seem to find it.  I also seem to remember a gas station on Concord, south of the St. Paul Airport somewhere that has bait, but I just randomly ran into it one afternoon and I might be confused.  
    • Ya, me too.....they're extremely rare animals nowadays.. I searched (online) every hardware store, box store, Home Improvement, office supply store....zip. Only place that has them...Walmart. I suggest ya hit the used a bit and goodwill stores, they always seem to have a few. I'll keep my peepers open for ya for a good one if ya want, otherwise, get someone to order for ya off of Amazon Prime.
    • Hey everyone, had the opportunity to get out with my new jiffy 4lite propane, an Ion, and the Clam Drill plate kit (drill plate/gear box/auger with 18v Dewalt).  I was with 25 guys and I was the only one with augers. So it was the perfect time to try out all three and see what was preferred. In the end the ratings would be:   Jiffy 5/5 Ion 4/5 Clam 4/5   The propane was faster and cut the lake like a hot knife on butter. The Ion and Clam were not as fast, but were still able to cut plenty of holes without any issues. The batteries on the clam did not last as long, but if I were to buy higher amp batteries that could be solved. The Ion was slower than the other two but was consistent and did cut a lot of holes.

    • Hello everyone, I usually go up north, or stop by my Holiday to grab waxies or some small crappie minnows. But where in the metro can a guy get some small/medium suckers or shiners? I am closer to the south metro and work in Woodbury. I don't think Cabelas or Gander carry them anymore. I will be helping with a class for families to try ice fishing and am looking to show them the variety of baits to use. Is there anything in St. Paul? Why don't we have more bait shops anymore.
