Help Tip: If you have a question that has not been answered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new thread of your own. By starting your own thread, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum members.

Below are some additional forum policies in hopes of all iboats members will follow, Thank you.

1. Please do not reply to old threads or hijack existing threads. Old threads of a technical nature are like a library book, Please do not write in them.

2. Old threads should be considered archives and used for reference only. Please do not reply to them.

3. Do not take over someone elseís thread (aka hijack) with your own question, even if it is similar. If you have a question that has not been covered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new thread of your own.

4. If you have a question for the original poster (OP) and the thread is over 30 days old, send the OP a PM, he may not even visit the forums any longer, or may not notice your question in the old thread.

5. By starting your own thread, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum helpers that may not even notice your question when itís posted at the end of someone elseís thread. And those answers will be specific to your particular issue.

6. Please do not post to threads that have been inactive for more than 3 months unless you are the original poster. We have very active forums and any thread that remains inactive for that long should be considered "dead". It is especially confusing when there is an entirely new question posted to an old thread.

7. Posting at the end of any thread is considered to be hijacking the original posters thread which in turn subjects the thread to be closed if it continues to happen thus not making it fair to the original poster in the future had for some reason he/she needed to return for additional information or provide an update of the problem solved which is always welcomed within a reasonable amount of time frame.

8. Please note that you should see a red banner pop up near the bottom of each inactive thread asking you not to reply to old threads. The Red banner will read: Please note this thread has been inactive for 90 days. For the best results, please start a new thread.

Thank you all in advance for doing your part in helping iboats run a smooth ship.

  • 1995 johnson 130hp starter selinoid problem

    I just replaced the selinoid because the old one was stuck in the on position and flooding the engine out. Well I put the new one on and the engine wont start. I unpluged the wire on it and it runs fine. The old one was melted on the inside which leads me to think there has to be a short on the wiring comming to it. When its plugged in and i push the choke I can hear it click. Any answers?

    i believe you are talking about the Primer Solenoid. red lever, must be here, for standard running. if not it will flood out the motor.

      yes that is correct the primer selinoid. The red switch is pointed in the right direction. when the purple wire is plugged in it clicks but doesnt start. when unplugged it doesnt click but starts.

        Primer Solenoid
        the primer replaced the old choke butterflies in the carborators, pushing in the key activates it, like the old choke plates, but injects fuel directly into the intake.
        The red handle is used when your battery is dead, and you have to rope start. You move the handle 180 degrees.
        Normal operating position is with the handle back over the body of the solenoid, like in the picture below.


        the primer solenoids has nothing to do with the starter, it just enrichens the fuel/air mixture for starting. plug it in, it is operating correctly. it is just a solenoid activated valve.

        it sounds like you have short in the wiring harness, or the ignition switch.

        i have a very simple shade tree fix.
