1965 9 1/2 HP Johnson

Recommended Posts

I was given a 1965 9 1/2 hp Johnson I was told if I could make it run I could have it my problem is I put a carb kit in it I can get it to idle but when I put it into gear and give it a little gas it dies? Im not sure whats goin on?

Did you clean the carbs when you put the kit in? It sounds like a stuck / plugged high speed jet to me, that or fuel delivery - fuel pump, hose, etc.

Is the primer bulb facing the correct direction?

Yes I cleaned the whole carb there is a fuel pump on there I cleaned that too

Sure it's the fuel pump you cleaned? Sounds to me like you need to open your high speed screw a little at a time until she runs good. I know you said you put a carb kit in it, so I'm assuming this also meant a new needle and seat and if not start there.

Is that a 2 hose gas line? If so make sure your gas cap is tight and there is pressure in the tank (push the little black button on top of the tank till she squeaks)

Spark, fuel, and compression.

Did you remove the fixed high speed jet(not adjustable) and clean it or spray through it to verify that it was clean and free of crud? What happens if you try to richen the idle mixture needle. Do a compression check and verify spark on both cyls, just to eliminate other problems.

What should the compression be for that motor? I know I have spark I put new points and condensers in it. I replaced the needle and seat so thats brand new. I tried turning the mixture screw I can get it to idle but thats all I tried it rich and I tried it lean I cant get it to go

There is no spec on compression other than to have them fairly even. I have had some as low as 70 psi, be within 5 psi or so of each other, and have them run fine.

have you tried to choke it a little while trying to throttling up? I would still suspect the high speed jet in this case, but you need to eliminate spark and compression problems.

    • Good job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
    • I could always go and spend more money on an additional unit but some of it is like Floyd said. I have a hard enough time watching one screen. I have the app on my phone. I think that lowrance has the ability to split the screen into 4. I just can't believe I'm the only person who would like to see this but maybe I am. It may not be as big a deal once I get more familiar with the unit. Right now I like to look at all the screens to help discern what it is im seeing on the screen.  I appreciate the input!
