Question for Surface Tension

14 posts in this topic

I'm repairing a 2HP Johnson outboard for a friend of mine. Do you happen to know of any link where I can find a diagram of this motor? When I went to the search engine I usually use, all I could find were places that wanted to sell me repair manuals. Thanks in advance! grin.gif 1DIRTBALL wink.gif

Keith, I know what you mean, on-line diagrams and manuals are impossible to find. I might have something, what year is your outboard? You can also go to the library and take out a manual.

Frank thank you very much for the quick answer. I take it that you have been frustrated the same way I have, trying to find this information. The motor in question is a 1973 model. Mod.#2R73B Serial #E3714692 I thought of going to the library also. It being Memorial Day weekend, of course it's closed. Thanks again for your help Frank. Good luck and good fishing! grin.gif 1DIRTBALL wink.gif

For all you guy's here on the Duluth forum who might have questioned the integrity or intent of our fellow member, pastfan, I am here to state, unequivocably(sp?) that he is a true gentleman of the first stripe and an outdoorsman of the highest order! Not only did he provide me with the exact information I needed but he took the time and trouble to email me the exact diagrams I needed from his his own repair manual. What a guy, eh? I did give some thought to naming my next child after him but at my house there would have to be another star rising in the East for that to happen!LOL! laugh.gif My grateful thanks to Brent! grin.gif 1DIRTBALL wink.gif

      Well I know many of you are not going to believe me but I went out side (I have no clue why) and looking in the grass and saw what looked like a bunch of small twigs. Well they weren't sticks they were night crawlers! I grabbed a bucket and was able to grab 8 of them that was the first time I've got any for a long time so I missed a lot as I was way too slow went out a few minutes ago and there was none. I got them all around 7pm. Texted buddys and none of them believed me a few pictures turned that around. They all went looking and they found none must have been my area the hot spot maybe? Not really ice fishing related but its the middle of February not july finding some thawed dirt was a bit tricky either froze or mud after digging around I found some good stuff. Hoping the ice holds up and it will be safe for next weekend I'm going to have to try them for gills maybe. I've never used crawlers in the winter any of you? I've still got lots of waxes though. Now I fell I'm rambling but felt I had to share this!
