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.

    You will probably get quicker results by buying the manual for your motor (or hit your library).

      You could also get get a faster response if you would post your E-mail address. Real e-mail, not hot mail. That way I'd know where to send it.

          Louis.Sending you a copy would violate the law. Asking someone to do so violates the law.Buy a manual or borrow one at you library. http://www.outboardrepairs.com/manuals/ Good luck.

            Re: 1969 Johnson 55 Wiring Diagram

            Thanks everyone for the info... And thanks Alcan... I certainly don't want anyone to break the law... Normally I would never touch an OMC outboard. I'm a Mercury man. I've got 3 old 20 Mercs, a 25, and a 40 and all of them run like brand new. But I salvaged this old 55 Johnson Electric shift. The top end and gearcase had been rebuilt about 10 years ago and then the motor was immediately mothballed in a shed ever since. The motor seems to be in great mechanical shape. I oiled the cylinders and cranked it over---great compression, but won't fire. It looke like the mice had a pretty good time with the wiring therefore that's where I'm going to start. Years ago I had 3 Electric Shift 65 Johnsons, so I know a LITTLE about these motors. I'm also looking for about a 35 (no bigger) to replace my 20 Mercs, as I plan to add a little weight to my boat. Do you think anyone would be interested in a possible swap. I have 2 20 mercs that run perfect plus one for parts. I also have a 1999 40 Merc that runs perfect, but has a torn up gearcase. The 40 is just a little much for my boat...Thanks Again, More to followLouis
