Hi All,

I have just been given these 2 outboards and would like to know a bit more about them.

The Johnson is a 1966 3hp going by the identification plate. What oil ratio would it run on and how do I remove the cowl. Apparently it doesn't have many hours of use and should start fairly easily. Is there anything i should check before attempting to start. Obviously spark plug etc. Is it worth checking the water pump or see if it starts and pumps water.

The West Bend is a 6hp but I don't know what year. It doesn't have an ID plate. From what I can see on the net it is around 11965. If anyone can help with oil ratios etc would be appreciated. It is also missing the prop. ANy idea where i may get one from.

Both engines were running when last used, which was some time ago i believe. The west bend has had a blown water jacket which has been repaired at some stage. The guy who gave them to me thinks it may need looking at again but.

Hope fully i can get them going again.

Cheers

Michael.

Hi Michael,

If you take another look at the plate on the Johnson you'll be able to find the model number with is likely to be JW21 or something like that. Once you have that information, do a google search and from there you'll be able to find manuals, parts lists etc for download. These will answer all your questions eg oil types and more. They will also help you with disassembly.

As for the cowl, what you need to do first is separate/remove the carry handle at the front lower cowl. This is a split handle normally with a screw securing the ends to the center section. Once you have that disassembled, your should be able to spread the lower cowl at the front opening and push it backwards to clear the leg. With that removed, look underneath the center ring and you'll find some screws that upper cowl section. Remove those and list the upper cowl off.

Don't know much bout the West Bend, but google is a good place to start for info on that also.

Regards,
Spiro

Hi All,

Thanks for the replies.

I will try and remove the cowl on the Johnson this weekend and make sure everything is ok before trying to start it.

Cheers

Cool motors!
Prior attempting to start either motors, I suggest you consider changing the pump impellers.

The first outboard I every drove on my own was a 3hp Johno' similar to that one. I was about 8 years old.
