    1996 Johnson Venom 200 Oiler

    I have a 86 johnson 70 vro and I pre mix it also .The oiler are bad to go out and blow the motors. The oil tanks on the newer motors work great with alarms on new boats these days

    Stratos 295 1998 model

    I have a hydrosport 17.5 foot with 86 johnson vro 70 hp that runs 50 by myself and 46 with loaded down I say the prop needs more pitch to it is my guess if the boat hole shot is super fast you have low pitch prop good for hole shot sucks on top end speed loose a little hole shot with higher pitch but u gain it on the top end may need twick with jackplate some too hope this helps you out a little and you should stay below 5000 rpm if you can just a good rule of thumb
