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.

      Saturday found the panfish deep in the morning, not a fish on the shoreline to be found. By late afternoon the shorlines were packed with panfish.  Crappies just now are actually on beds.   Bluegills are have not yet started to fan nests.  The big seriously fat females are thick shallow, only a few bulls hanging around at this point.   This is for the area near Walker/Hackensack.

      Leeches under a slip bobber drifted over a small shelf off a bigger flat.  Bobber set at 8.5 feet.

      Saw a group  like you described a couple weeks back below the Sartell dam while fishing.They didnt have head gear though.They were playing by the dam gates riding the flow from the open side.Then they hung out by the closed side and I learned that its only about knee high on a certain area  that in my mind thought it was much deeper.Looked like fun for sure

      I have a Minn Kota Ulterra and am not having any problems. In last two days I have seen two fisherman struggling out on the water trying to stow their units that failed to auto stow. There is an emergency procedure described in digital manual but it is not very helpful. I have looked for a video of this procedure on You Tube but couldn't find one. Has anyone had any luck finding such a video??

      Back to fun pictures and the reason I love coming to the Tower/Ely area!   There's just an amazing difference in the environment up here.  It's something I miss pretty much every day I'm not here.  And when you have as beautiful of a Saturday as we had yesterday, I just gotta say "Ahhh, this makes everything else worthwhile."   And when I go back through my best fishing memories, SO many have been made here, and yesterday I added another.  These girls in consecutive casts:
