I hope to shortly aquire a 5hp Johnson twin to be used for flubber power and as a back up motor for our Trapper TS240.

Question for the Johnson 2T experts including Vics and our antipodean friend.

I am 99% sure this engine has a lot in common with the 6hp and is just a strangled/downrated version. I don't yet have the serial number to confirm this.

I have done a quick survey of the parts lists and it appears it is just jetting that is different. Is there anything else I have missed. IgnitionBox?

Also I am looking at the possibility of adding a stator and rectifier to give a little charging help to the solar panels.

I would be most grateful if anybody can tell me I am on the right track.
