Johnson 15 HP and Johnson 6 HP

Post by James » 01 Jul 2018, 20:53

Hi

Well today I dug out my Johnson 15HP engine which hasn't bean used since the Wild West Adventure last year. She started on the first pull :D

I also dug out the Johnson 6HP. She's not been turned over for a couple of years. She fired up on 1st pull too, however it's not pumping water. The engine looks original, and hasn't seen much action since she was made in the early 80's. I don't even think she's been apart for any kind of service either :Boxsmile (Apart form spark plugs)

All the bolts still have their original paint on, and there is no cracks or any signs off a socket being used on them.

I am guessing impeller, however I can't workout how to get it apart to change :oops:

A job for another day. I'm not sure what I'll use the 6 hp for? Wife says I should just fix and sell. My dad recons fix and stick in the loft and use it as a backup if my 15hp pops

There's a 4 part video on YouTube which might be useful ?

Also check gear oils I'd change them anyway for piece of mind :)

And I'd do the 15hp impellor too .

Then it's easy to sell them if you were to, but wouldn't let you down on the water.

The 15HP I would never sell. I love that engine.

The 6hp, I aquired from someone who owed me money so I don't have any attachment too it, apart from it's age and condition.

I was going to look at it next weekend, but the Navara has decided to throw the air back light on. :cry:
