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.

      We're making ice now. 0 degrees in Twig   I measured a spot along my shore that had opened during the warm up and found 4" of ice. If I thought about going out to deeper water I for sure would use caution and chisel my way.

      Yes SA fills tanks and should be able to fill a 30 lb tank but they charge a flat rate.  So if your tank is half full or empty you pay the same flat rate.    Uhaul charges by weight and you pay for what they put in.   Both are cheaper then the tank exchange and most tank exchange are 17 lb whereas SA and Uhaul fills to 20 lb.  When you figure that in your paying a lot more for convenience.    One more detail.  If your tank is out of date and needs a new inspection it can't be filled by UHaul or SA BUT the tank exchange will take them.

      I don't know of any product that will keep a pair work gloves dry.  Sure you can spray a water repellent on them that might bead rain water off but go work in them and they'll be saturated.   If your wearing the gloves for protection having them wet isn't the end of the world but if you need protection and warmth I bring a few pairs on the job.  Or you can purchase some hi-tech stuff that claims to be waterproof but a I know of none that will stand up to be a true work glove.    When I think of work boot I'm thinking leather.   I use Sno-Seal.  It stands up to a hard day on the job and Will keep your feet dry.  Being a wax base dirt will stick to it in warmer temps but bring on the cooler temps and it shines.   You could get a boot like Mucks but they will not hold up like a leather work boot.  So it depends on what type of work I guess.

      What about Super America at Pike Lake? I think they do the same, with better hours. they refill out of big tank.
