BRUNO

1990 120hp Johnson Lower Unit

Question

BRUNO

Have a clicking sound from the lower unit as I let up on the throttle. Have winterized the head and am in the process of pulling the lower unit. Did have a slighly milky look to the lube.

I have rebuilt car motors and am fairly mehanical. Have any of you rebuilt a lower unit or am I better off getting a used unit.

Any comments

Thanks,

Surface Tension

If you let up fast on the throttle the prop will begin to spin backwards and you will hear the clicking sound.

I probably should clarify, it does it once in a while at steady throttle and when I let up gradually it like a sharp clacking sound.

Time to get the oars out?

I have done chrysler ones a couple of times. You will need a good service manual and a seal kit. I would shop around. With the season ending you can get pretty cheap labor over the winter if you give it to someplace for the winter. Check with TC Outboards. They did mine for 200 dollars two years ago.

      Sure. The good thing is if you have too many cocktails and fall off the dock you will not have to worry about drowning.  People are going to have a long walk to go swimming out of the Waskish beach. Hard to believe that 3 years ago the dock floated up off the support poles so we had to put in a few longer ones. The dock was right up to the predator guard below the wood duck houses.

      Hey would someone that lives close by the Hatchery let me know when they are stripping eggs this year? Shouldn't be too far off.

      Here are a few photos taken off of my dock which is straight across the Pike River from the Hatchery. Only a day or two more before it opens up here on the river! The second picture is looking toward the dam.

      Your Right! after clicking on the picture a couple times and zooming in you can see the big white head of the male hooded mergaser.

      According to the Army Corp of Engineers weather station here in Waskish we have had a grand total of  1.29 inches of precipitation so far in 2018.  When we were burning the grass of there was still about 30% snow cover. The flames were hitting 10 feet high.

      Nice to see there might actually be some ice melting up that way! jkrash, those are hooded mergansers though.   I might’ve called out my first woodie sighting this year as one of those too.  But nah!  I know what I saw had to be woodie! Haha! Seriously though, I’ve seen more, and more variety of ducks this spring than ever  in my life.  The late lake ice outs have made the river a diver Mecca.  I think I saw a few with Ely or bust signs on em too!  The bulk of woodies have been in the Little Falls area for about a week, some for a couple.  The hoodeds have been here for at least a month. They’re all coming though!
