88 hp Johnson SPL impeller help

5 posts in this topic

I'm working on replacing the impeller on an 88hp johnson v-4. I have all the bolts off the lower unit but I cannot figure out what's holding the shift shaft on. Is the shaft held on by a screw or bolt? If so, WHERE? I can see a screw under the bottom carb, is this it? Please help! Any photos for reference?

Thanks in advance,

FOGS

I'm at work so I don't have my repair manual in front of me, but if I remember right it is under the carbs, where the shift shaft attaches up top. I'm also pretty sure it was held on by a c-clip? We needed a long needle nose pliers and a lot of patience. The 70hp Evinrude I did was kind of a pain to get attached again after the work was done, but other than that was a pretty easy fix. Again not positive, your's might be different, just saying that's where it was on my 70hp motor. I haven't changed the one on my 90hp outboard yet.

If you don't get any other replies I'll check my shop manual and get back to you as soon as I can.

Ctmanlee is correct, there is a screw righ under lower carb, it holds a clamp that secures the shift rod.

It's easy to remove, and a PAIN to re install....

Can't you pull off the air box and remove the carb from the intake to make access easier?

Thanks guys! Got er' done! An R-clip on the linkage had to be pulled which allowed the linkage to slide over enough to get the shaft off. Piece of cake once you know what yer doing. Very much appreciated!

      You can't find one? How much do they cost? Try Cabela's for starters.All the I-Pilot and I-Pilot Link models have Spot-lock.   http://www.cabelas.com/browse.cmd?categoryId=734095080&CQ_search=terrova   https://www.minnkotamotors.com/Trolling-Motors/Freshwater-Bow-Mount/New-Terrova/

      Nice, I'll have to start fishing it more and learn it.

      You can find crappies and sunfish anywhere on the like around the pencil reeds and/or cabbage.  One of the best spots is right in front of the resort, but don't limit yourself there as there are plenty of spots all over the lake for pan fish.  The nice part is that you will probably also catch bass while going for pan fish.  Good luck and remember to give other fisherman plenty of room.  No reason to fish close to others.

      The quality of walleye on fish has really amped up since the slot. I would put it up there with the St. Louis River now as far as local waters that produce quality walleye. Sometimes it's hard to catch an eye under 17"...its kinda the opposite of Island Lake. I wish the protected slot was a little longer as I don't see many over 26".

      I never got a chance to get down to Superior in the morning to fish from shore, as it was always a little too rough every day. I did get up early enough to make it to the devil track river, finally for the first time. Was nice to check it out, although my time was short. Caught 1 little rainbow, and lost 6!    Also checked out the Poplar River for the first time, off the caribou trail, at the campgrounds. Only fished it for a little bit, but caught 2 brook trout, one of which was about 12 inches. River was surprisingly deep, was wading in waste deep water.    My dad and my son are still up there. But they haven't really been able to fish due to the rain on Saturday and Sunday. If it was nice today, they were going to go back to Greenwood Lake. Otherwise, if the weather was bad, they were coming home a day early. Haven't heard from them yet, so hopefully they were able to get out.

      Yes just north of Cook.  They are open 7 days 8:00-4:30. Y-store is open 5am - midnight.
