Motor Service is Completed
« on: June 06, 2019, 12:35:20 PM »

Just heard from the service shop and my boat is ready to be picked up.  It had a carb problem that they have fixed that was causing my problems.  They performed an on water test and are reporting that the motor performs as new.  Problem is reported as warped carb bowls.

Like always the bill is not cheap but I am glad it is fixed.  It wasn't doing me any good as it was.  I am just happy to get it back tomorrow.  Can't get down there this afternoon but I will be on their doorstep in the morning.  Probably won't get out on the river myself until at least Monday.

Good luck. I'm curious how the carb bowls got warped as I have never heard of this problem. Ask the shop to explain to you should it be something you might be causing.

While researching this problem, I discovered that many Johnson motors of this age developed this problem that was created by the type of plastic used to make the bowl.  Research reveals that problem was known clear back to 1999.  This is obviously not a problem now but in the days of the carbed motors it seems to be limited to Johnson.  The carbs are 29 years old so I guess one could say these lasted a long time.
