Lower unit swap

4 posts in this topic

I have a 1974 evinrude 25 hp manual start that I think has a bad lower unit because it slips all the time and feels like I am hitting something. Anyways I got a free Johnson I think its a 1970. Model # 20r-70e. Its a 20 hp that doesn't run. So will the lower unit from the johnson bolt right up to my evinrude. If it will is it hard to do?

Basically the answer is yes. Are they both long shafts? If not, it's still possible but you would have to swap drive shaft, water tube, shift shaft connector and adapter housing. really not a big deal though.
