Hello, iboats! I just discovered this site. So, Hidy!!
I hav a 1984 35 Hp. Johnson Sea Horse that My Dad left me after he died.
I'm just tryin to familiarize myself a little bit with this motor.
The model # is: J35ECRR Serial # E5924459
I've been able to figure out from the Model # (as ya'll can see), that it's an electric start and the yr. 1984 I read on a chart that the last R stood for the model run or suffix. Can anyone tell me what that means? Also I think I understood that if there is no letter between the E and CR that it has a 15" std. shaft, is that right?
Also I was wanting to know what Sea Horse meant? Is that the gearing?
Are these dependable motors?
This motor has set for about 5 yrs. without being run. My Dad's neightbor said that the last time he seen it run that it hummed right along.
Can you give me an idea what I'm probably lookin at to get it tuned up and runnin well? Nuther words what are nessacery things I need to check since it's set so long? I guess this is a 2 stroke? Fuel mixture?
Okay, thankee fer ya'lls help! And I'm glad I found this site! Hope ya'll hav a nice'un!
