Looking for pictures...

I just bought parts for my 9.9 4-stroke. I'm replacing the carburetor and fresh water impeller. I'm looking for a few pictures that might help me avoid silly, first timer mistakes.

Re: Looking for pictures...

Welcome to SailNet, jopa!

In order to help, we'll need to know the Make & Model of the OB.

I did a rebuild of my 31 year old Evinrude last season and had it running almost like I knew what I was doing. I got the Clymer's manual and the parts from
Outboard Motors, Boat Parts, Marine Engines, Inboard Boat Motor

Good luck!

Ken

Ah; meant to include that.
The engine is a Honda 9.9 think it was purchased in the late 90s. I'm not completely clear on the model number, the parts store used the motor ID: BABJ1300292.

Re: Looking for pictures...

Here are a few pages from the shop manual.









Only paper shop manuals are available from Honda; they have free shipping and free updates for 3 years, $39. Here's a link to their store on eBay:

This is an excellent resource for parts diagrams, and indeed, parts :

Re: Looking for pictures...

I got started on the motor today and I canít say things went well. The pictures from the Honda shop manual are pretty cool, step by step (for the carburetor) and a few shots of the impeller replacement too. Well first bad sign was when I noticed that the inboard and outboard gaskets were marked ďdo not reuseĒ in the illustrations. Called all over looking for them till finally the guy up in Everett suggested that I just be REAL careful taking em off. I did that and was feeling better. Then I got to the part where I was starting to transfer hardware from the old carb to the new one and found out that they sold me the wrong part.

Ah well, at least Iíve got that task almost half doneÖ AND Iíll be able to get new gaskets, a fuel filter and an oil filter while Iím in there.

So after a fair break, I tackled the impeller replacement. I got confused cause I thought the impeller mounted down by the prop. The steps say to take off the prop and the prop shaft holder and the gear case assembly I didnít have pictures of the pages that detail how to remove those last two, so I kind of winged it. I removed the prop and then the 5 bolts that seemed to be holding on the lowest ďchunkĒ of the lower unit. When I removed these, after a bit of banging, it dropped downÖ. Maybe 2 inchesÖ. And then kind of hangs there.

So now Iíve got the bottom of the motor dangling there and I donít want to use any force cause I donít want to break anything. In looking at the pictures again, I just realized that the 2 inch gap that I opened up is giving me access to the impeller housing and the four bolts that secure it. So I feel like Iím close to being on track, but Iíd sure feel better if Iíd done this before. Iím not sure if the gear case assembly is the part that I have dangling or not. Guess Iíll see what happens if I remove those four bolts tomorrow. Or who knows, I sprayed the whole thing with ďnut crackerĒ before I quit for the day, maybe the whole thing will be laying on the floor tomorrow 

Re: Looking for pictures...

For this level of service, there's no substitute for having the real paper shop manual there to guide you. In my first post, there is a link to buy one direct from Honda (free shipping) and is money well spent. Getting it apart is one thing, but getting it all back together is a lot easier when you have step-by-step instructions and illustrations. Best $39 you'll spend and makes DIY service a LOT easier.
