johnson Phantom 35 hp

1 post in this topic

I have the above sled and was wondering if anyone else had one that is still running. I've had the sled for two years and it hasn't done anything bad yet. I recently purchased another Johnson Phantom 40(?)hp and used it for parts. What I noticed is that their was a tin on the gas tank that said to use Johnson rotary only 25:1 mix- Anyone own one of these beautiful sleds that can give me some insight. I run amsoil interceptor in a 25:1 ish range just a little less oil to reduce smoke. It seems to run fine and the apex seals still look good. Rebuilt the secondary clutch with parts from the two sleds, reverse works, neutral, elec. start and headlights all good, tachometer seems somewhat correct but bounces around a lot and the speedo definatly is off, you can creep along and your doin' 15 mph, sticks at 30mph. Any tricks to fix the speedo?

And where could I find A spark plug for it UP77-v, its a surface gap, and a regular plug will not work! It hits the apex seals.

Its a wonderful sled, just zooms along at 30mph forever. Was just wondering the best ways others have taken care of theirs. Seems allot of people had them but they blew up.

    • Seen on the channel 5 news the other night, plans to remove a dam in River Falls. They didn't specify which dam, or if it would be both dams. The movement is gaining popularity, especially with residents. And more input meetings will be planned. However, if the project is ok'd, it doesn't sound like it will be in the near future. I'm all for the dam removal! Both of them!
    • Hey Dave, I am sorry to hear that. If you need anything you have my number.  Send me a PM or text and let me know whats going on. Recurring infection? Low blood supply?     
    • Yes. But he has a great plan to utilize the excess rail capacity in the country by relocating those who disagree with him. It's gonna be a real gas. 
    • 100% A-OK is how that's working out, but I'm not surprised by the continued confusion. Even beside Texas vs Johnson, the idea of stripping citizenship from people hasn't stood up in court.
    • You must have been on some sh*tty ice for it to do that... Love my heavy spud bar, if it doesn't go through in a couple wacks I feel pretty darn confident in stepping...Spud bar,picks,pfd,rope, common sense all ya need
    • Protecting the rights of the id-oits, for the purpose of teaching others how not to be an id-iot is paramount. It goes both ways.........
    • What? You don't like the 1st amendment?
    • there is a seat belt law, why not have a ice picks law? if you are caught out ice fishing before the 1st of the year without picks, you get a "stupid" ticket.
    • So burning a Quran, or pouring bacon grease on it must be protected as well?  And flying the Stars and Bars?  How is that working out?
