5.5hp Johnson

byordy Hi,
I've been watching this board for some time and there's a wealth of information here.
I'm in the process of repairing/rebuilding a 1978 21' Dolphin Products boat with a 175 hp Evinrude (which I bought, boat motor & trailer, for $800.00, so that

byordy Thanks, fone_man.
That's the model number on the bill of sale and I read it from the plate on the stern bracket. It's not a typo, but it may be a "read-o" on my part. I'll look at it again when I get home.
1962 sounds about right however, judging by the color of paint and the style of the hood.
Are parts still avaiable from the dealers, or on-line?

fone_man They should be... new or used, this a great BB for locating hard to find parts plus I am always searching for new sources.

Walt & JB profess to be experts on old OB's & they do a great job along with 12footer & the rest of the crew... "if I didn't menti

byordy Thanks, I'll try that.
I'm looking forward to getting this rig in the water.

byordy Mornin' all
fone_man, you're right. After carefully looking at the tag on the stern bracket it turns out that the model number is CD 19 S.
Another question. I'm building a bracket to mount this motor on the back of the boat to use as a kicker, and I'm wondering where the shaft length (15", 20" etc.)is measured from. This little motor measures about 20" from the top of the inside of the stern clamp to the propshaft. The 15" measurement is about 2" above the anticavitation plate. I'm gathering diminsions so I can build the bracket to allow the motor to tilt up enough to clear the water line when underway. I have read that the anticavitation plate should be level with the bottom of the boat to about 2" below the bottom of the boat when underway. Is this correct?

Rick C The Ken Cook Co. has your manual.Its a bit pricey @ $35 but is the best manual I've found(I have a CD-17)Also E-Bay has lots of original manuals, parts catalogs and parts.Local marine dealers still carry ignition parts for it also.Plenty of on-line parts dealers also and most have search engines and will mail you the results. 2001-08-17
byordy Thanks Rick C,
I've checked out Ken Cook and Monday I'll give them a call and order the manual.
I've gotten the motor running this weekend and it seems to run ok but the fuel pump does not work. I'll try to find a diaphram locally next week.
Also I had to take the carb apart and clean it and I found the low speed adjustment set at 1/4 turn off the seat. Does anybody know what the correct initial settings are for the low and high speed adjustments?
I've gapped the plus at .030 and I guess thats's ok, but if not someone please let me know.
Bill......
2001-08-18
byordy The saga continues,
I've disassembled the fuel pump and lo and behold the problem does not appear to be the diaphram. It looks like there are two ball bearings that are used as one way valves to contol the direction of fuel flow through the fuel pump. I say it looks like it because if they are supposed to be installed they are missing. The cavitys are there, the seating surfaces look ok, and the springs that should hold them against the seats are installed. There are no ball bearings however. I can also blow both ways through he pump so it's definately bad.
Does anybody have any thoughts on this?
The fellow I bought the motor from said it was running before he stored it several years ago. I don't think so.
Bill...

byordy Well I visited my local dealer and while he had no parts to repair my fuel pump, (the parts manual listed no parts for it) he did have a complete pump that would work. I purchased it and hopefully will be able to try it tonight.
I still would like to know the initial settings for the low and high speed jets, and the spark plug gap.

J.B. Cornwell Ahoy, Byordy. Set the hi-speed needle 1/2 turn out from the seat, lo-speed needle 1-1/8 turn.

Plugs are J4J, .030, points at .020.

byordy Thanks, J.B.
Hi J.B.
I put the fuel pump on this afternoon, set the mixture screws, turned on the water, pulled it twice, and it ran. After some fiddleing with the mixtures it purrs like a kitten, (a 39 year old kitten). A little cosmetic cleanup and some other minor things and it will ready to mount on the boat.
Now to build a kicker bracket to mount it on...
Thanks,
Bill........
