Oh and one other thing, does yours have neutral or is it a direct drive?
Gears are neutral and forward via the side gear lever on both engines - the older Johnson is in better condition than the 2year younger Evinrude.
on/off valve/switch, is also the "choke" when pulled out, and is set to "off" to use fuel
from the external fuel
tank, and to "on" to use its built-in tank.
I think the Johnson/Evinrude 4Twin is/was one of the best little 2stroke engines made, with maybe the Yamaha Malta 3hp - that I traded-in for one of the 4Twin's.
For info, another good outboard website - http://www.marineengine.com/manuals/johnson/
I'm in the UK, and the two best reference websites are in the USA!!
