Johnson Carburetors and Kits
Gas that has been stored for a while can easily clog your Johnson outboard’s carburetors. Old gasoline deposits gummy residue in the carburetor float bowl and clogs the minute jet and fuel passages. Rebuilding a carburetor might seem challenging to those who have have not attempted this procedure before. Rebuilding simply means cleaning the varnish and gum from the float bowl, jets and passages. Even a first-timer should be able to do this in a couple hours. Wholesale Marine carries Johnson Carburetor kits and carb cleaners that make it easy to perform this task with ease.
For boaters, performing simple maintenance procedures, provides a feeling of satisfaction. It also saves money and may also prevent expensive repairs later on. Below, Wholesale Marine provides a quick overview of the task so you can decide if this is for you or should be performed by a marine technician.
Rebuilding a Johnson Carburetor Overview
For Best Results Use Johnson Carburetor Kits from Wholesale Marine
Detach all fuel lines including the primer bulb fuel line from the engine and the line running directly from the carburetor. Detach every carb-to-engine link then unbolt the carb from the intake manifold.
Disassemble the carburetor. Lay each component on a clean shop towel it will make reassembly go much faster. It will also be easier to determine what needs to be replaced and which components just need a cleaning. Set the needle and seat aside.
Shake the float. If it is not empty, it needs to be replaced.
Once the carb has been disassembled, clean every part thoroughly. This is the most important step. We recommend Quicksilver Power Tune and Sierra Carbon Free Aerosol to make this critical stage of the process easier.
