Johnson outboard and Amsoil Saber

Question

hovermn

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.

      It clears like that every spring. Nice catch. Any size to the striper?

      The water in Cannon lake is the clearest I've ever seen it. You can see the bottom in 5ft easily. Caught a few perch and a striped bass. Also saw some big bass around the fishing pier by the beach.

      Dang ,,, Another nice day to be out on the water on Fish Lake  ,,, Too bad the fish didn't think it was nice enough to eat what we offered !! Might have to switch bodies of water!!!

      Lake Sylvia is great for bass also lake Francis near Kimball is good too a little smaller but great action! The Mississippi sounds fun I should try it myself.

      Update.  Minnesota American Legion and other volunteers succeeded Thursday, May 17, 2018, in cutting the giant North Long Lake bog into three sections. The bog came to rest on the beach of an American Legion camp. The plan is to move the middle section to open up the beach, then relocate the other two back to the bog’s original position on the lake north of Brainerd, Minn. (Forum News Service)

      The Minnesota record is almost that big, it's over 5lbs and it was caught in the Vermillion river in southern Minnesota back in the late 50's I believe.   "Ace"

      You need to go west or perhaps north of Pine island if you don't want to go that far.   "Ace"   "It's just fishing man"

      I spoke to a buddy who was at Sag over the weekend, and my dad who was fishing a lake a bit north of Leech - none of them had much luck on walleye. I'm chalking it up to a walleye blackout across the northern part of the state. I just need an excuse for the rest of the trips I take! We're talking about coming up again in the fall. I definitely would like to come back for a longer trip, there is so much more of the lake to explore
