Need lower unit for Johnson 48 SPL (1993 model)

Need lower unit for Johnson 48 SPL (1993 model)

Need lower unit for Johnson 48 SPL (1993 model)

Well, i guess the cast aluminum finally gave out. Last time i took it out i had to go further into reverse to get it to engage. then today it blew up. i am not sure how it got contaminated. IF ANYONE HAS A USED LOWER UNIT FOR ONE, PLEASE LET ME KNOW! http://www.marineengine.com/newparts/part_details...

Re: 1997 Fisher Freedom 200 restoration

Great project. I don't know anything about Fisher. What kind of outboard?

Look up the seaark big easy. I think you need a dining table right in the middle. And for sure a big shade bimini!

Re: 1990 Tracker Pro Deep V17

Great boat and thanks for sharing the story. I love the open layout.

If you are looking for upgrades check out millennium seats. I have mine on 12 inch posts and love them.

Re: Do you own, or consider owning a jump starter?

I got the noco model on sale. Keep it in the truck. And take it with me in the boat.

My smaller boat has a pull start backup!
