Wanted: Evinrude/Johnson twin 4hp LONG leg/engine

I have a 1982 Johnson 4hp super-light twin into excellent running order.

Looking for the long shaft conversion kit, or preferably the whole leg. Also happy to swap my s/s leg for your long-shaft.

I think any 1982> leg with a forward/neutral clutch will fit.

I got one of them, but I need the length so not for sale!

Just a note to say the conversion kit is a spacer that fits between your gearbox & leg, along with a longer drive shaft & water tube (and in your case a clutch rod) . The leg itself is "constant"

As for the clutch, I think I'm safe in saying that one off a non clutched engine will also work, as the "complicated" bit is just a spacer, so all your clutch gear (top & bottom) won't change.

Might be worth giving DA Marine in Tayport a call. He had a pile of them a while back.

And yes, they are ridiculously light! :Thumbs:

Thanks for the advice. Spoke to Davie at TA Marine and they're helping me out.

Ah well, seems they're not able to help.

Anyone got a 4hp Evinrude / Johnson long shaft lurking in their shed?
