40 Horse Johnson

Question

T-290

I just bought a new /used Lund with a 40 Johnson 1993. It has what appears to be an early oil injection system( no more pre-mixing) I asked the seller at the time about any low oil warning lamp or a auto shut off.There is none! Now we all can be a little forgetfull at times but this could be an expensive mistake! Are there any retro units that could be installed to prevent this from happening? T-290

I once owned an '88 Johnson 40hp and that was a pre-mix model. It turns out that I once had an incident where a buddy and I forgot to add oil to the gas on our spare tank and when we hooked up the spare tank and went full bore across the lake, the motor recognized the problem, and automatically shut off! They have sensors in the motor that detects oil and prevents a blow out. I never had any warning signals or anything...just a plain jane motor.
I am sure yours has these sensors.

Buddy of mine has a 40hp Johnson not for sure the year either a 90 or 93. It is oil injected, oil pump quit working motor didnt detect problem. Now he needs new head and pistons. I would be careful with the oil injected motor. Buddy was told if he fixes motor he should just mix oil in the gas. This way you know for sure its getting oil.
Just my two cents worth......

      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff

      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!

      Thanks Leech! Ya you need a life jacket in a kayak. I have mine behind my seat, but Yes I should be wearing it.
