Hello my name is ***** ***** am I speaking with?
What are you working on?
Okay Johnson, what is the model number on the engine?
Is the engine from the 2000's, 90, 80's 70's or older?
A 1980 Johnson 70 (and anything newer) will not have a shear pin. Are you sure it's not older than 1980? A model number, or pictures of the outboard, would be helpful.
Okay I will wait for pictures. The more you take the better. Try and get the engine cover, engine block, and the shear pin that you are talking about.
Good morning. Any luck with those pictures?
Okay there is no shear pin on a 91 70hp, the pin you are talking about holds the nut on place, not the prop in place. What kind of problem are you ultimately having here?
Please re-read our entire conversation thus for. As of yet you haven't asked me any kinds of questions, nor explained what kind of problem you are having.
