Would anyone here know where to get an owners manual for this engine? I just got the boat painted and its getting ready to go back in the water. Need to do the annual maintenance so it lasts another year.

I can get you a owners manual for it. I believe the owners manual is available for free online . I believe you can find it at johnson.com It would also be a good time to purchase a service manual for it also. PM me if you would like a quote.

Don't know if it is the same block, but I have a 99 Johnson carbed 225 that has been bulletproof. It's on a 22' Kencraft. Takes 50-55 gallons to fish the Big Rock...

I have a 2000 250 Johnson Oceanpro pushing my 1999 25'Wellcraft CC. WIth the flo-scan its just about 1.8 to 2.0mpg at best cruise (and I emphasize best). Turning 4500-5000rpm at 32 to 35mph buring 16-20 gallons depending on fuel, load, conditions etc.
Been a great motor.
Hope this helps
Todd

Dam strong motor.
Power pac goes nuts. If itís over 5 years old replace it. Also check the interrupter disk on the flywheel for cracks, it will make other components appear bad.
It will run for a long time but buy oil stock.
There are two aftermarket manuals, one is better than the other with more pictures. The one I have is the more obtuse one but I can still figure it out.
I cant remember which manual was considered better. Some one here can fill you in.

My first post-so please everyone take it easy. I have a 2000 Johnson Ocean Pro 250 HP on my 2390 Vector HS. I love the motor. It has been bullet proof so far, although the lower units are a little weak for the hp. They have caused some problems in the past. And yes they do use gas compared to the newer 2S's and 4S's. but I still average around 1.5-1.7 mpg running around 4200 rpm's @ 25-28 knots. They do use the oil also. At about a gallon for every 50 gallons of gas. Offshore fishing a full day you are looking at 50-60 gallons of fuel. Hope this helps.

Very reliable, typical old school 2S. My friend has them on his boat with well over 1000 hrs, and he treats them like $hi!

I've got a '99225hp. I believe that it is the same block & didn't change till '02. So far so good for me. It does stall now and then when shifting from forward to reverse. Starts right back up though. I think it happened to me 2 times this season in maybe 40 trips or so. There was a previous thread regarding this problem... here you go...

I have a Johnny 150 carb v6. I only get 1.5 mpg on a 21 WA. Don't buy it if you want any sort of efficiency! I wouldn't buy another on with the price of gas and oil going up every day.

Reliable motor that sucks gas like crazy!

But, I've heard that the 200+ HP motors weren't as reliable as the 150's.

I have a pair of '99 225s and can echo what everyone else has said. Reliable, powerful, thirsty. Hard starting when cold.

Had a 1999 200 on my old boat. Went through two VRO's, one replaced under warranty. Strong motor that loves gas and oil.

That is what my experience has been. Bulletproof but a bit heavy on the gas. I would buy another.
