The Model A received an update in 1925 becoming the A-25 and also received a single cylinder brother the J-25 the same year. Many times a good cleaning of the bowl and tank is all that is required to put them back in running condition. In 1926 a larger motor called the Model P and rated at 6 horsepower, was introduced. January 17, 2019 at 10:17 am Good Day Folks, I am trying to identify a Johnson outboard motor I inherited. Interested in how old it was, I googled and ended up with this post.
I bought a boat with a Johnson Super Seahorse 35hp and all what I got is the serial 1920746. You can also try one of the many on-line auctions like eBay or Craigs List but for our money the is better! The Johnson A, A-25 and many of the other early motors have only a single needle valve. W e don't make parts for those. I am trying to figure the year so I can order parts. ? If you want I can give you the name and address of the individual that sells these parts.
I am almost positive 1979 and 1980. I didn't design the serial number system for these motors and if I would of I surely would of did it better. Model Identification Johnson outboards from the 1920's and 30's will have their model and serial number on the top of the flywheel stamped into the rope sheave. I would really appreciate it. If you look about halfway down your Johnson's starboard side, you might see a metal plate with the serial number that contains code letters that identify it. Probably 24:1 is a good idea in the 3 hp too, and I think I will go this way too.
Vintage Outboard specializes in replacement parts for Mercury, Johnson and Evinrude outboard motors built from 1955 to 1980. Perhaps this was a message from the manufacturer to the customer expressing their appreciation for purchase of the product.

Trying to figure out what the year is of your Johnson outboard can be a frustrating but not impossible task. If the motor still will not run then shut off the fuel tap and continue with 3-5 tugs on the starter rope - once the motor starts be sure to turn the fuel valve back on! The dog ran into the door jamb, but then corrected it's course - so I did what I was told and followed him out back.
January 21, 2019 at 12:47 pm What the …. Far less smoke and carbon residue and far less plug fouling. Now thats everything on the outside of the housing from top to bottom. Be sure all fuel fittings are tight and leak free. P art's at central warehouse, you'll get it next month.
It is the perfect motor for this boat. The fuel bowl looked like someone put jelly in it, but some carb and choke cleaner and all the passages cleaned out and looks fine. I have look on the silver dot on the top of the pistons and all that. Maybe one of you can help. As for value… it is a common motor for collectors that is non-functional.

Seems my ball park is somewheres between 1962 and 1970. Now after tinkering with it over the weekend I have another question, should the powerhead be hot to the touch after running it in a test barrel for just a minute or two? What would that model number indicate? I just brought it up from the basement after 12 years and am excited to put it on my old 12ft semi-V again. Much more soothing with 24:1. One of your five articles elicited a reply that your motor is a 1978 and uses a 50:1 mix. The liberal use of compressed air, picking at the blockage with wire and a lot of flushing are really the only options to fix this problem, short of disassembly of the cylinder and removal of the freeze plugs. The model number is V4A1-18C and the serial number is J2655717. I have a early 1990's Johnson 9.
Click on the youtube link, and see how happy you helped make us. Can anyone help to clear this confusion up? Would guess you have a 1955 motor. But again thanks for being an asshole and pointing me in the right direction. My serial number is different from those previous postings about what the serial numbers really mean in identifying the motor. Would like to know year, gas mix ratio. Best I can tell it may be a 9. Due to the corrosive effects of modern gasoline it would be wise to recoat the cork float in the carburetor with a modern fuel-proof coating — discuss this with your local hobby shop owner, they will be able to offer the best alcohol proof solution.
