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.

    • This might be one of the reasons. 
    • Are the majority of United States citizens too dumb to vote?  A great mantle of responsibility has been placed upon us.  Are we capable?    I shudder every time I contemplate this.     
    • Ended up with one bird on public ground western meeker County Friday afternoon. Saturday the pooch put up 6 birds for us in the morning in swift co with hardly a breeze and all I could do was tickle 1 bird, not very proud of that.  This morning the wind was howling which made the birds jumpy but managed a couple.  We pounded a lot of gravel and didn't see much at all, but then again lots of corn still in.
    • I had military mickeys for years... and years but about 2 years ago I bought Baffin's. AWESOME boots. Sooooooo comfy, warm and decently light. I own Muck's and they are great for more "active" fishing as my feet get cold in them if I just sit one the ice all day. That said, you CAN walk all day in mucks. The comment about Baffin's being large and unable to get pants over...very true! But a great boot none the less.
    • maybe Eve got it!?!?
    • No......but "brexit" was polling within the 4 percent margin of error before the vote . Cant imagine any one of those 272 in the 8 percent  and above range flipping.  Suppose anything is possible, couldn't ever imagine Trump being considered a serious candidate either. 
    • These the same reputable folks that said Brexit was going to lose by a significant margin?
    • So, you are voting Trump?  Or are you going for Gary Johnson?
    • According to the most reputable poll trackers, with a couple weeks to go looks like Hilldawg already has 272 solid votes....... with Trump only at 127. The swing states currently within a 4 ish percent margin of error are Florida, Ohio, North Carolina, Iowa, Nevada, Arizona, Georgia, and Texas. Weird saying Texas and Georgia are swing states and got believe will go to Trump. For fun am also going to give him Arizona, Iowa, and Ohio.......leaving him 216......and 322 for our next first lady.
