Under the lower carb, you'll find the linkage connector.
There is a screw, holding a lever on the shift lever ( coming from the SB side ).
Unscrew a few urns and you'll be able to slide the lever to free the vertical shift rod.
You'll gain better access with the removal of the air intake baffle and the lower carburettor.

SOURCE: what is the trick to removing the leg from a 25 hp

Its either up under the cowl near the bottom of the powerhead, or you might have to put the outboard in gear using the lever to drop the leg an extra inch, which would then expose a shift linkage holding nut in the gap above the leg connecting point.

SOURCE: 1989 johnson 25 hp outboard water pump replacement ? shift linkage issues.

Line up the water pump housing with the drive splines and look straight down on it all -there will be a clearance cast in the pump housing some where. It's a matter of perspective. Or you have the wrong pump.

Installing a carb on a 1991 3 HP johnson. Does the choke insert in the linkage round hole or the oblong hole?


Hey Rocky, I would start with the round hole... This is a manual choke engine/carb..(butterfly in the mouth of the carb)... make sure it opens fully and closes fully when you turn the choke knob ....it needs to operate smoothly and correctly..if it doesn't swap holes..

1997 Evinrude 50 HP SPL. I have removed all the bolts holding the lower rnd to the engine, it seems to be hanging up on the shify shaft, and I can't find a way to drop the unit. It drops down about...


Okay this is on total memory. The shift shaft for a lot of those engines goes right up through the pilot shaft and exits just in front of the block under the carburetor(s). You will see the **** linkage arm connected to this shaft sometimes it's double nutted. See if you can slide the lower unit back up to the housing and put a bolt in it to hold then undue the shift shaft linkage, Remove the bolt and drop the lower unit. Be careful of the water tubes and check make sure the rubber grommets are in place in the pump housing not on the tubes. Clean up the pump housing and install the new impeller kit.
Put the impeller down the shaft on top of the impeller plate, lightly grease the inside of the housing the impeller plate and impeller. Then lower the pump housing down to the impeller while turning the drive shaft clockwise lightly push down on the impeller housing. This will fold the impeller blades all in the correct position and provide lubrication to the pump until the water gets into the pump. To make life easier re-grease the drive shaft spline and the water tube grommets this will ad ease in reinstalling the lower unit. be careful to make sure you thread the drive shaft, water tubes and shift shaft all in at the same time. After installation you may find you need to adjust the **** linkage.
