Motor jumping out of gear?

2 posts in this topic

I have an 82 Johnson 35hp motor (actually dual 35's on an 18' Lund). I recently took the lower unit off the one motor because it was jumping out of gear when it was under load. I took the unit apart, found that the pinion was shot, it's thrust bearing was shot and the upper washer (thrust bearing) was MIA (ground up I assume), as well as the suspected rounded dogs of the clutch dog. I bought a used set of fwd, revers, pinion gears as well as the clutch dog. They weren't perfect, but they were in better shape than mine. I just took it out for it's test run, and i still have the problem. I plan to take it back apart and see if anything looks out of the ordinary. Any help you could give me would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Mike

Obviously, have better look at the clutch dog and fwd gear. Also make sure the shift linkage is allowing full engagement. Most of the time it is caused from worn dogs and lugs. However, I once had a head scratcher that turned out to be a worn thrust washer on the prop shaft (between the prop and taper on the shaft). It was allowing the prop shaft to float back and forth a little in rougher water or every time the boat would bounce.

    • Hey @rl_sd who had the meat on sale? Looks great btw
    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change!
