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.

  • 1965 johnson 3hp jw20b???

    Can anyone tell me what its worth or where i can find the value of it without having to buy a guide??? it is slightly used - it was only used 4 or 5 times when i was a kid. it was my grandpaws and he gave it to me. Im sure it will take a little work to get it back running because it has sat up for nearly 30 years but it was garage kept and is pretty clean.

    Well, the value could depend on a lot of things. How it looks cosmetically and mechanically and how much will it take to get it back to the water. If you posted some pics, that would help us determine the value. It also depends on your location too and what other motors like yours sell for. Those are great little motors and an iBoats member favorite

      Complete, good cosmetically, spin w/compression and no sign of water intrusion in gearcase.. I'd go $100 max. They sell in these parts (MN) for $250-350 as tuned runners. My favorite OMC motor.. I own a couple, and have worked on many dozens for customers.. J/E made the same motor from '52-'67. They knew they had a good thing going!
