I have a Pin maybe the housing? Whats the serial/Model # on your motor? Course I live near Willmar,Mn and I been trying to sell things on LSF for years!! Just had my first sale ever from LSF and it was footpedals for that motor 2 weeks ago.If I have the parts do you want to drive out here?

Too bad "we"don't confront what initially "happened"to the natives originally in this country.No wonder they don't "care"about a moose or a walleye!Or at least try to get "us"upset about the whole fiasco!!!!Just think if someone came up to you and said,you can't stay here anymore you WILL live here now.Oh yea by the way you WILL teach your children this now.(English and customs)because your ways are savage.If you don't comply we will make an example of you and your family by killing you!These are just a snippet of what went on!!!!c63
BINGO C63!
That argument of treaties being so long ago there outdated,So is a document written in 1776 outdated and need rewritten?? besides rewrite all the US treaties with other countries

Heres a couple great reads.Why isnt our real history written and taught in schools?? Possiily we would find we did geniside like edie Amine,Stallin, Pot Poi, and Hitler along with many others!

Read>>http://www.truth-out.org/news/item/29954-the-native-american-genocide-and-the-teaching-of-us-history

Dont blame natives blame your ancestors for treaties. even the broken ones of which Most fall in that category

Didn't have much time to mess with it today but I did get the flywheel off, looks like one of the coils was replaced at some point. I just went ahead and ordered a points kit with condensers, hopefully they come in by next weekend and I can get them in and try and fire it again. The gap is noticeably different between the two just by looking at them. All that looking on the interwebs for a matching cowl and low and behold there's a parts motor on MN craigslist with a matching one
Thats great you found that Glist one,Can you PM me the link so I can read the ad. Its been bugging me that I cant find any info for that cowling!!

Well crap, no spark Fuel appears to not be a problem but no go on the sparky sparky
Pull the flywheel and file and set the points to .20 maybe buy a point kit with condensers included.Those motors are tough and it should be easy to get up an running, and any 1960 18HP Johnson to 1965 are interchangeable parts.
Can you do a compressioon test?

I think my dad has the stuff I need to a compression test, I'm gonna yank it off the boat and get it in the shop. Is there a way to test the coils with a multimeter?

They should be OHMed out. At CDI they on newer coils for the tech tab they show what OHM REdings should be.But not on the older. heres a CDI site to call foI, clean the points aND TRY IT FIRST UNLESS THE COils are cracked

Hey guys, I was at an auction last weekend and ended up coming home with a boat lol. It's a RichLine Challenger 14 on a trailer with an 18 horse Johnson on it. Not what I went to the auction for but I got the works for $100 so I figured why not! I'm in the process of seeing if the motor runs, where would I usually find the serial number? I'm just looking for some basic info like plug gap, fuel mix ratio, etc. I'm guessing the motor is from the 60's but I can't seem to find a serial # anywhere! Thanks

Hey YS how did you determine its a 18HP? I've looked at every cowling from 1957 to 1965 no 18Ho's match yours/
heres the site for cowling pics scroll down to Johnsons 18HP..http://www.outboard-boat-motor-repair.com/Outboard_Motor_Pictures.htm

heres 18s if this works.http://www.outboard-boat-motor-repair.com/motors/Johnson%2018%20HP%201958%20Model%20E-12%2C%20FD-12%2C%20FDL-12%2C%20FEE-12%2C%20FDEL-12

Maybe its a 20 or 15 HP????


Yeah since I've been having such a hard time locating the model # I've been trying to determine the year by looking at pictures but I have yet to find a match. It says 18 on the back of the cowling, I'll post another pic tomorrow. I actually found a spot where it looks like a tag was once mounted below the motor on the transom mount piece, but the tag is no longer there
Heres a pic of your motor with red where the ID tag was>
Heres a 1962 FD-16 pic .
I sure cant find a matching cowling on any 18HPs?Maybe a canadian motor??I know later models made in canada did have different cowling markings,There are sites like marine engine where I mod and someone can or should be able to help ID with those older motors
