1990 120hp Johnson Lower Unit

4 posts in this topic

Have a clicking sound from the lower unit as I let up on the throttle. Have winterized the head and am in the process of pulling the lower unit. Did have a slighly milky look to the lube.

I have rebuilt car motors and am fairly mehanical. Have any of you rebuilt a lower unit or am I better off getting a used unit.

Any comments

Thanks,

If you let up fast on the throttle the prop will begin to spin backwards and you will hear the clicking sound.

I probably should clarify, it does it once in a while at steady throttle and when I let up gradually it like a sharp clacking sound.

Time to get the oars out?

I have done chrysler ones a couple of times. You will need a good service manual and a seal kit. I would shop around. With the season ending you can get pretty cheap labor over the winter if you give it to someplace for the winter. Check with TC Outboards. They did mine for 200 dollars two years ago.

      A buddy and I fished fri. 4-14 had some ice issues once it hit shore and the wave action it was gone pretty quick. We fished about 5.5 hrs  5-fish 39-36-34- and 2 mid 20s. I went back mon. and tues. slow at first between 1-5 7 fish but the biggest was 32in the people out were getting fish also, tues got one right away 36 then it got dead the other people out did not catch any thing either may be the weather, it was pretty brutal and didn't stay to long. Proably wont get to Lowts for awhile now and always enjoy going their. Stay Safe Good Luck Bear55

      I'm pretty sure the old owner Jack still owns the property and leases to the landing. I live close and with an inclusive business plan I think it would do fantastic. When jack ran it the place was packed. The owner of wolf bay lodge told me his business tripled since the landing changed hands. There is plenty of demand for a fun place to go that treats everyone the same whether they are rich or not, local or tourist. I've owned a few businesses in this area and there aren't enough extra customers that you can afford to get rid of anyone. Why anyone would want to is beyond me.
