I am taking this straight from my copy of Evinrude/Johnson outboard shop manual 2-40HP, 1973-1990 shop manual. Special thanks to them, if you don’t have the book-get it. It’s worth every penny!

  1. Clamp screw, steering handle pivot and tilt/run lever
  2. Throttle detent, cam, linkage and choke lever
  3. Magneto and throttle linkage
  4. Shift lever fitting, reveres lock and swivel bracket
  5. Fuel shut-off/choke shaft (integral tank)
  6. Choke shaft (remote tank)
  7. Choke linkage
  8. Rear motor cover latch
  9. Starter motor pinion shaft-use Lubriplate 777
  10. Vertical throttle shaft and gears

Complete list does not apply to all models. Perform only those tasks which apply to your model. Lubricate with OMC triple-guard grease every 60 days (fresh water) or 30 days (salt water) as required.
