SURFACE TENSION-OUTBOARD HELP


Recommended Posts

ST, I always think of your name when I have a problem with my outboard. I have a 25HP 1985 Johnson and yesterday the manual rewind starter assembly hatched. The bolt holding it all together had come loose while it was running, flew up and cracked the casing. The spring was not damaged. Can I just get another casing for it or is that not an option? Do you think there would be any chance of just having the casing welded and rewinding the spring? If none of this will work, do you happen to know anybody that has an old outboard I could scavenge the part from? My thanks for sharing your knowledge with me. Tight lines! 1DIRTBALL wink.gif

1Dirtball, Which part broke, the spool or the mount with 3 legs that bolt to the power head? I guess depending on where the break is and if anything got bent would depend on if it could be welded. You should be able to buy just the broken part new and use the other parts like the spring and dogs. Or you could buy it used in which case you may have to buy the whole assembly. I've boughten used and new parts from Twin City Outboard. They're reasonably priced and are good about sending you the right part.

ST, It was the top of the mount with 3 legs that broke. As far as I can tell, everything else seems OK. Thanks again for your help. 1DIRTBALL wink.gif

      First open water fishing this morning. Planed to go to Clearwater but water was 6 inches over docks. Drove over to Sylvia/Twin and access was great. Water very clear, could see bottom in more than 12 ft.  Caught several sunfish and bass. 2 northerns and a crappie. Most went back including a 9.5 in male sunny. Beautiful fish. Most caught in less than 3 ft water.  Temp was 61.

      We are high up on the hill so no worry of water damage, but our electrical box wasn't too far from the rising lake water. I hope that issue doesn't start hitting others as well!

      I was up for opening weekend, but only fished Saturday morning. I had a limit by 6:30 so headed back to the cabin to get work done. In about an hour I lost 2 on the way to the boat, boated a 13" that I threw back, and kept a 14, 15, 16, 17. Nice size eaters. Jig and minnow in 15-20 FOW.  Water temps where I was fishing was 41.    I have damage to 2 docks and several trees down. I hope this water level goes down soon! Good luck everyone.

      I'm willing to buy this white shirt. It will look awesome with the juicewrld pants.

      Opener was decent on Saturday and absolutely on fire Sunday. 9 eyes, three over 25 in, one at 28.5. A bunch of largemouths, some crappie and perch and a TON of bullhead. One of those weekends where your hands start to hurt.

      I'm quite happy since I'm going fishing with a pal for the first time in a long time. We plan to purchase some clothing for it, such as exclusive hoodies.

      The majority of docks can't be put it. Water is over the top of pretty much every permanent dock.  Very few docks are in.

      Crappies are all up shallow in the south metro. Caught this one shore fishing with a beetle spin from a more secluded lake without much access. All of the crappies were between 7-9 inches with this 11.5" being the exception
