I have a 2005 9.9 four stroke outboard that I use on my sail

Customer Question

I have a 2005 Johnson 9.9 four stroke outboard that I use on my sail boat. It was used but only had a bout 10 hours on it and looked like new, ran like crap because the guy never used it and the carb was all varnished up inside. I replaced the carb (not easy to find) and it runs great. However I've never been able to find the proper factory flushout tool. This motor has the water intake under the fin just over the prop, it's a rectangular water intake with a perforated grill over the opening. Where most have the intake on the sides or like my old two stroke Evinrude which was on a pitot just behind the prop.
Where can I get a flush kit for this 2005 9.9 hp 4 stroke? I've looked high and low and no luck.

Thank you for allowing me to assist you, my name is Joe and I will be happy to assist you with your concern today.

It depends on exact model however any of these should work including the mercury one so long as it makes good seal and water flows. Of course I would use the first type that is actually made for it.|2285701|2349048&id=54524

Thank you!
