Johnson controls


Recommended Posts

I have a 1988, 90HP Johnson.

Looking to replace controls and I am having trouble locating a unit that will fit up with out a 200-300 dollar adapter. Has anyone found a good aftermarket control for this unit with power tilt/trim and idle lever?

The biggest issue is the throttle/shift lever itself is cracked in a few places as well as the release to take it out of neutral. The price of these replacement parts alone have me close to some aftermarket control boxes (without said wiring adapter). There is also play in the throttle itself which upon initial inspection, does not appear to be cable related.

Gotcha.  I replaced the handle/lever this year on mine because the trim/tilt switch had shorted out.  Cost about $80.  If there's other issues it can get pricey quick!

Gentlemen, I was able to purchase all the parts needed to rebuild my control unit from boats.net. They were the cheapest of any online vendor and had everything I needed. Control  cables were ordered fro amazon. it is a straight forward process to rebuild this unit.

Good luck with your project!!
