Source for 54C OMC Carburetor High-speed Orifice

I have a 1988 Johnson 90-HP V4 model J90TLCCA. Due to my living [and boating] at 7,200-feet elevation, an upgrade was recommended to change the carburetor high-speed jet to 54C from 56C. I can not seem to locate a 54C. Give me advice where to buy a 54C high-speed jet for the J90TLCCA engine. Thank y...

The bulb is only on the line from filter to engine and another on the oil line. Is this setup correct? Also I think the fuel line i...

Re: Johnson 90-HP V4 Lugging

Changed the fuel filters, did notice the fuel hose snapped to engine has a leak going to replace the head of fuel line. Checked the spark plug QL77JC4 @ 0.030" and spark. Onboard installed fuel tank does not have a vent screw. Will research how to check the spark coil and power pack. Running th...

Re: Identify Engine Accessory from Photo; Finding Owner's Manual for 30-year-old outboard engines

That engine steering accessory shown as identified by jimh is still made by the EZ Steer Company, formerly of Washington State, now owned by Marine Tech Products in MN. I have an original owners manual for a early 1990's Johnson 90 HP V4 outboard. Should be the same as your 1988. ( Maybe the OMC Jo...

Re: How to get manual for 1988 OMC engine

Thank you for your prompt response. There is a 6hp Evinrude next to it with the exact same device. Very interesting.

Do you have a recommendation how to get a manual for a 1988 Johnson 90-HP?
