Source for 54C OMC Carburetor High-speed Orifice

Postby Wyowanderer » Wed Jul 31, 2019 12:35 pm

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 you.

According to the information at

SHOP2.EVINRUDE.COM

a 56C jet is available as part 0325019 for $13.75.

But no 54C jet is listed. To check with a savvy Evinrude-Johnson dealer is probably the best path to locating the unusual 54C jet.

I would assume any high elevation Evinrude dealer would carry it. Evinrude was the same engine. There are places online like shop2.evinrude.com. Have you tried E-Bay since you know the jet size?
