I lost part 40 shown it the schematic shown in the link that follows. It was a stiff piece of wire. Can anyone tell me what it does and if there are any key things I have to keep in mind if I try to make another. Is there anyplace I can find specifications for part 40? I started to take the carburetor apart to clean because the motor only runs only at high speed and will not idle.
If you have a J3BRESR and can look under the cover at the carburetor it would be appreciated. I suspect that either part 40 limits the amount the choke closes or limits its movement in someway. but with out the actual part I can't tell what it does. I picture of the left side of the choke would be fantastic!
If you have the motor is there any chance that you could take a picture? If I can see where it sits I am sure I can make something. The carburetor schematic just isn't very helpful in defining the function for this part. Thanks for the reply.
Raczekp1, daveit--I believe that you are both right. I looked at the schematic for a E4RLESR (4HP Evinrude) almost all of the carb parts have the same part number as the J3BRESR 3HP. The E4RLESR doesn't have the part that I lost from the J3BRESR. So it must have been a brace or designed to protect some thing from physical abuse. I wonder could it have been to prevent the splash guard from bending back and breaking?
I don't think you really need it as a lot of the parts diagrams for the 3 and 4 horse don't even show it. If you want to call Seaway they might have it though. They specialize in NLA and hard to find parts.
