Johnson outboard and Amsoil Saber

5 posts in this topic

I just picked up a 14' lund with a 1974 Johnson 25 hp motor. I'd like to run Saber oil in it, but want to make doubly sure that the Saber outboard oil at 100:1 will work with this engine.

Any thoughts? I've run the Saber with success in my Chainsaw and ice auger, but want some opinions with the outboard.

Thanks!

I've been using the Amsoil HP Injecter oil at 50:1 in my 1980 (ish) Johnson 60hp. Sure seams to me like it has improved the performance of the motor. You can pick the HP Injecter up at Fleet Farm by the gallon.

I'd go the HP Injector at 50:1 also.

Really... Kinda wish I had a chance to read this about 45 minutes ago, I was just at Fleet Farm! lol Woulda shouda coulda. Okay, I'll go with it. I did some reading in the archives and found that people were recommending decarbing the engine before using the Saber Outboard. Would the same hold true for the HP? If so, anyone use the Seafoam Deep Creep? I wonder if I can just pure small amounts of reg. seafoam into the carb. I've done it with car engines...

If you go to saber you will want to use the ATO saber. The stuff you use for your chainsaw is ATP which is for air cooled . APO is for outboards that are water cooled.

      Lots of water and slush on the ice yesterday. Ice wasn't as thick as I thought it'd be either.  Spot I was on I marked 13".  Ended up not driving all the way to where I was going and glad I did. Walked about 1/3 mile.  Caught some perch, gills, and a 14.5" eye. Saw some larger marks moving through when I caught the 14 but just sniffers. I was in 20' bottom of a break with some deeper water near and weeds not far.

      It's true, people were driving out on the river yesterday, but the ice is melting quickly and the current has picked up.  The snow cover is gone and there is about 1" to 2'' of standing water.  This extended warm weather has me worried.   Personally, I think vehicle traffic is "Iffy" now.  Be careful.

      The webcam has been running for a few days now. I was watching it on and off all day yesterday and saw a fair number of vehicles going on and off the lake. But I haven't seen anything yet this morning. I was thinking about going out tomorrow, but I'm starting to get a bit nervous. I may call Harty's this afternoon and see what they say.
