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.

  • 1969 Evinrude push button shifter

    Hello Gents,

    My 1969 evinrude is running great. the only problem i have is when i put it in reverse you hear it go in and feel it pull at idle but when you idle it up it sounds like it is not fully in gear. I am still learning about these engines. I have years of pratice on cars but i am learning that outboards are oranges and not apples. any info would be great.

    What kind of oil do you have in the lower unit?? It should be type C or premium blend.

        Very important to know before giving advice: What size of a 1969 Evinrude motor do you have? The 40hp works entirely different than the larger motors.

            It is a 85 hp. Where do you find the oil for the foot?

              Any BRP dlr, maybe Wal-mart or West Marine. Just make sure it's premium blend or type C.

                  Possibly with the wrong oil in it.

                    we'll went to change it today and found that there is water in the oil. It looks like the seal behind the prob is leaking because with the engine not sitting up oil started leaking out from behind the prop. Is this a seal that is hard to replace?
