88 hp Johnson SPL impeller help

Question

Fish On! Guide Service

I'm working on replacing the impeller on an 88hp johnson v-4. I have all the bolts off the lower unit but I cannot figure out what's holding the shift shaft on. Is the shaft held on by a screw or bolt? If so, WHERE? I can see a screw under the bottom carb, is this it? Please help! Any photos for reference?

Thanks in advance,

FOGS

I'm at work so I don't have my repair manual in front of me, but if I remember right it is under the carbs, where the shift shaft attaches up top. I'm also pretty sure it was held on by a c-clip? We needed a long needle nose pliers and a lot of patience. The 70hp Evinrude I did was kind of a pain to get attached again after the work was done, but other than that was a pretty easy fix. Again not positive, your's might be different, just saying that's where it was on my 70hp motor. I haven't changed the one on my 90hp outboard yet.

If you don't get any other replies I'll check my shop manual and get back to you as soon as I can.

Ctmanlee is correct, there is a screw righ under lower carb, it holds a clamp that secures the shift rod.

It's easy to remove, and a PAIN to re install....

Can't you pull off the air box and remove the carb from the intake to make access easier?

Thanks guys! Got er' done! An R-clip on the linkage had to be pulled which allowed the linkage to slide over enough to get the shaft off. Piece of cake once you know what yer doing. Very much appreciated!

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.

      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.

      Actually when I store the boat I take the unit off as well. Is it ok to have the power line just hanging out? Do I need a shut off switch?
