Where are my anodes

Yet another question about my Johnson 40hp -90something.

I am doing service and im reading in my big service manual that I should change the anodes. However I can not find anywhere what anodes I have and where they are. Do any of you know where I can find any information on this?

 

I have looked some on the engine, but I could not find any.

Re: Where are my anodes

Here's an article (skim through it to the pertinent spot) that should show you where to find them...

You can find your anodes in the operator's guide and if you do not have one, order through www.outboardbooks.com .

You can also refer to the parts listings by your engine model number at  shop2.evinrude.com

If you post the complete model number, we may be able to assist you.

Re: Where are my anodes

Thank you for your answers. I have the shop manuel, should it not be in there?

 

The model plate is gone, but thanks to this forum and you, BluewaterBill, we have narowed it down to a 40hp Johnson 91-94 electric start, tilt and trim.

Re: Where are my anodes

There is an anode bolted to the propshaft bearing carrier which is visible after removing the prop and thrust washer. Another one is bolted to the inside area of the port stern bracket.

Re: Where are my anodes

About the propshaft bearing carrier anode. Does the entire bearing housing need to be removed or is the andode itself changable just by removing the propeller?

 

About the port stern bracket one, I had a look but I can not see any anode present. Could it be that it should be fitted on the place marked in red below?
