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

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!
    • JBMasterAngler
      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in
    • LBerquist
      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases
