    Hi, not sure if I should post this to you or on the general forum but.... looking for some help with a 1998 Oceanrunner 115, Only has about 90 or so hours on it. When trying to start this outboard, the starter kicks out before the engine starts. I can't keep the starter engaged long enough to get the motor started. It'll take several tries before it will engage long enough to start the motor. Any ideas? Need more info to help diagnose? I have removed the starter and it doesn't spin smoothly by hand, it almost feels as though it clicks when you spin the gear at the top. I can stick my fingers in the housing of the motor and can spin the gears moving freely, so I'm kinda confused....This has been doing it for a long time, I'm just annoyed now and want to see if I can get it straightened out. Any help/advice/ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thx

    I have a Johnson 25 HP model J25TESO and I can not locate a shaft. Do you have any suggestions on where to search?

    Thanks for the help in my thread. If you could update the title to correct the model year of the engine ('69 to '89), it may help others searching in the future.

    Much appreciated. I intend to reinstall the VSO system to test if perhaps the tank was being drawn into a vacuum & preventing fuel flow (suggestion from my neighbor).

    I am new to forums. I posted this in the Johnson outboard parts forum. I not sure if I need to put it here for you to respond?
    I have a 1981 70 Seahorse model J70ELCIH

    I am having starter issues and am planning to replace it.
    I pulled the starter (American Bosch 1062923m030sm) There is also a number on the side 04N18N (what is this number)

    I found replacements on However, it says the replacement is for an American Bosch 17996-29-m030sm.
    Any ideas as to why the numbers are different?

    Here are my choices:
    0586281 - MOTOR AY,STARTER Johnson Evenrude

    18-5635 - Starter, 585058, 586281 Sierra
    OUTBOARD STARTER Replaces: 585058, 586281, 386657, 391735, 585050, 384777
    Replaces OEM # 0384777

    5370 - Outboard STARTER, 586281 Arco
    FITS: O.M.C. 55-75 HP 3-cyl 9-tooth drive gear
    Replaces OEM # 0385667

    Can someone help me determine the right replacement?

    I have a 2000 Johnson 50 HP 2 cylinder. The carburators need to be cleaned and I need instructions about how to handle this task.
