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.

  • Classic Johnson/Evinrude service manuals; wire diagrams; and more free!

    I was searching for service manuals for my 1957 Lark because I need to do some minor servicing of it... anyways, stumbled on this and thought it would be very useful to a lot of you folks out there.

    Really useful if you have an Evinrude or Johnson between the years of 1955-1963. Has service info and electrical system info. If you scroll down to '1956' in the Evinrude one, you can find an actual owners manual for the Lark (Would work for any of the Big Twin 30-35hp for Evinrude or Johnson from that era as a basic manual)

    One of the pages in the 1956 Lark manual has a nice large picture of a cross section of a big twin. I blew that up a little and made a poster out of it: (sorry the image sucks, camera on my phone was fighting me)

    Also made a nice Owners/Service manual using all the pages from the owners manual as well as the 'Service Information', and 'Electrical Systems Service Info'... Between the three, it basically has everything I could ever need to know about my motor.

    Anyone with a classic Big Twin from the late 50's early 60's, its a great way to get all the info you need for free--just invest a little time!

                Re: Classic Johnson/Evinrude service manuals; wire diagrams; and more free!

                G'day Folks,

                I am from downunder oz Australia and have picked up a Johnson 1966 LD-11R 5hp Seahorse.

                Can anyone please direct me to free or low cost workshop manual and users manual for this motor.

                The motor runs but only just and the water exiting the motor is very hot.

                I live in a very small dairy town, on a large tidal river about 30mins drive from the Pacific.

                My location is sub tropical east coast, about half way between top and bottom of Australia.

                My nearest big city is Brisbane in Queensland about three hours drive away.

                Thanks in advance for any help you can give me here.

                  Here's a complete service manual that covers your motor. It's only 384 pages long! I printed mine out over many hours. The main library link on this page will get you to the rest of their site. Lots of great stuff there.

                    Thanks Tim! Mine is a 1973 9.5 Sportwin and they have the service manual for that too.

                      A good start for me on this forum.

                      Got the Seahorse running better today by getting the fuel flow in the right direction D'oh
