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????

I have the same motor. It is a 1962 18hp Johnson FD-16 if I remember correctly. If I can find it in my storage unit, you can have it for parts. Last I remember it lost spark on one cylinder.

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

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
