I have a johnson 9.5 horse that I took out of my grandpas Farm barn last summer and took it in to take it fixed for the 04' duck opener. Got new recoil, and sparks. The first time i took it out it worked well then later that day after the hunt, it would start at slow speed when i would want to speed up it would make this loud noise and wouldnt go any faster, it was kinda like on nuetral but wasnt. As a deaf person, I am not sure how to explain the noise, but the feel felt pretty high vibration. I am wondering what could possibly be wrong. It has not been used for maybe 10 years but it runs well and starts well but thats the only problem it wont speed up. I was thinking it could be possibly the Gearing parts? I will be looking at it tomorrow or bring in it to the boat shop..

Any help would be appreciated. thanks :smile:

Quack, check the lower unit oil there’s two screws top/bottom undo both, look for milky looking oil, which tells you your seals on your shaft are leaking, after 10yrs I wouldn’t be surprised, Check your oil level, it needs to be up to top screw hole, it might be low. When you drain your oil, look at your bottom screw, there should be a magnet attach to it, look for shavings, drain your oil into something clean to look for additional shavings. Also check your hub on your prop. That might be spun; it will look chewed up, or out of shape. In less this is an old engine, you might not even have shear pin, usually when they go, you go nowhere, but it might be. Good luck Bro

thanks to both of ya for your ideas of whats wrong, I think I will take it in where i got it fixed last fall, seemed like a great guy and will test it and then see what he says. I know I could do it faster but I like to get it done fast. Although I will try what you guys said.. thanks. I am not a motor man but yeah the prop has dents and busted but it ran good for the first hour, but one of my buddy said it might be the gear? I dont know? I will let you guys know when This junk is fixed :thumbsup:
