How to Shim a Johnson or Evinrude Lower Unit

This is a how-to video I created years ago for a customer who wanted to set up a Johnson or Evinrude lower unit and did not have the driveshaft shimming tool. We have been checking backlash on J/E lower units and they all seem to like the 3/32 backlash at 2 inches. Please give us a call if you have any questions, or need any advice or parts.

Gears, Bearings, and Seals

We take pride in the quality of the gears, bearings, and seals we use. Our gears are purchased from an American owned factory in Wisconsin that we have personally toured. Find out more below:

Gear Case Information

We use our in-house glass blaster to prepare the surface of our lower units for do it yourself painting or custom color. In this video we show off some freshly prepared lower unit parts.
