How Much for Outboard Motor Tune-Up?

  1. Hey Guys:

    I'm new to this whole outboard motor thing. How much (and from where) would a good tune-up be on an old 10hp Johnson?

    Let me know what you think, suggestions, etc.

    How old is it? You can buy tune up kits, they come with points, condenser and rotor. New plugs, wires if needed, and clean the carb. Not hard to do it yourself. Setting the point gap is the hardest thing, but not much to it. Buy the parts and give it a shot. If you need help just ask, we'll get you through it.

  3. Mid 70's, I believe. Thanks--I'll give it a shot!
