Please Dear God,
Don't let me experience all the motor problems I keep reading on Enation!
You have to put things into perspective. Of the millions of Johnson and Evinrude engines, you only see a miniscule percentage who have had problems. If you study the posts here, most are typical questions and the others are rigging errors, propping errors, accidents, or not adhering to proper maintenance - nothing to do with the motors themselves.
Visit any Chevy, Ford, or Chrysler dealerships and notice that their service shops are filled with new cars needing fixing. Does that mean that every Chevy, Ford, or Chrysler owner should pray that their car won't need servicing ?

The factory recommends that a properly trained technician service your Johnson or Evinrude outboard motor. Should you elect to perform repairs yourself, use caution, common sense, and observe safety procedures in the vicinity of flammable liquids, around moving parts, near high-temperature components, and working with electrical or ignition systems.
The information offered here is only general in nature and should not be construed as complete factory approved procedures, techniques, or specifications. Always use the proper service manual for your motor, up-to-date service literature, the correct tools, and have an understanding of how to proceed with troubleshooting and repair methods. If you are unsure or uncomfortable with a procedure, a situation, or a technique, enlist the services of a factory trained technician.
