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 topics or hijack existing topics. Old topics of a technical nature are like a library book, Please do not write in them.

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

3. Do not take over someone elseís topic (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 topic of your own.

4. If you have a question for the original poster (OP) and the topic 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 topic.

5. By starting your own topic, 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 topic. And those answers will be specific to your particular issue.

6. Please do not post to topics that have been inactive for more than 3 months unless you are the original poster. We have very active forums and any topic 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 topic.

7. Posting at the end of any topic is considered to be hijacking the original posters topic which in turn subjects the topic 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 topic asking you not to reply to old topics. The Red banner will read: Please note this topic has been inactive for 90 days. For the best results, please start a new topic.

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

  • how to make a shear pin for a 9.5 hp johnson?

    Well I just got a old 1965 9.5hp johnson, I been wanting one since I was little. My grandpa used to have one just like it and used to take me fishing all the time. I remember that one day the shear pin broke and we had to paddle all the way back. Since that I try to always have a extra shear pin with my all the time. Anyways, like I said I just got a 1965 9.5 hp johnson and I been looking for a shear pin for it almost everywhere. I try few marines around here but the dont have them. The only places I saw it was on ebay. I had some bad experiences on ebay before so I dont want to buy it from there. So I was wondering if anyone knows how I could make one. I know that the shear pins are made of different materials thats why Im asking for help. I have a little experience working with metal so I have the tools to cut it and everything. The prop size is 8 1/4x8 1/2. the shear pin size that I have now is 3.5cm x 5mm
    or 0.2in x 1.4 in. I pretty much just need to know what type of metal is to make it. but if you think there is something else I should know I would really appreciate your help.
    Thanks.

        The pin is a stainless steel drive pin. part # 0307949, available from your BRP/Evinrude dealer.

        It should be replaced with the correct part, not a substitute.

          Actually, it is part number 307949, available from any Evinrude dealer. If you insist on making it yourself, it is 3/16" x 1-3/8", (0.187" x 1.375") stainless steel. Sorry, Evinrude doesn't reveal exactly what alloy of stainless it is.

              While experts like ezeke and F_R know this stuff like the back of their hand, it helps to know that having the original part number is almost essential when chasing parts for these great old motors. The link below is to a website that maintains original OMC Parts Catalogs and your motor is listed. Good luck!

                This is an inexpensive, readily available part..you'd do well to actually purchase several here at iboats or at a local dealer rather then manufacture your own..

                Part # listed above....

                  a rusty nail will get you home, in most cases. but then use the OEM part when you get home.

                    I just bought a few last week for my '62 J18 and my BRP/OMC dealer had em in stock. Only like a buck and a half each or so. So I got 4. I'd get the right ones.
