Johnson control box ball bearing


Recommended Posts

hi guys

I have taken apart my control box to have a look at the wiring. when I lifted the top section off a ball bearing has fallen out and im not sure where it goes. Is it in between the spring?

the photos probably make more sense

Hi, yes it goes there with the cover and screw over it and it is the detent ball for the shift and throttle plate. I sure hope you paid attention before dismantling the c/box as far as you have because it can be above the skill level of most home handy men.

Got it back together the other day. The thing that got me was when I undid the drew for the throttle cable the shaft was extremely tight and wouldn't budge. I was abit scared to start whacking it with a hammer but once I got it out smooth sailing
