2hp Honda 4 stroke outboard

Hi I have a 2hp 4 stroke Honda outboard that does not pee out water, it is a BF2D, it may be an air cooled version, which may be why I can't get a new impeller, but can't seem to find out to be sure! Does anyone have any ideas? Tried to join the Honda outboard forum, but can't seem to register! Thanks for any advice.
Cheers
Gillie

I have one of those, and mine doesn't pee either, but it can't.

Re: 2hp Honda 4 stroke outboard

A common mistake a lot of people make with these outboards is running them out of the water. The intermediate shaft bearing relies on water to lubricate it.

We have one (6yrs old) they are air cooled & we use ours as a trolling motor when trout fishing on Rotorua Lakes in NZ .They run best on 85 octain fuel & only need an oil change every year & a new spark plug

Hi again, thanks all for the help, especially to TurninTurtle (I hope you don't) and NoTies, I'll be sure not to run it out of water.

Re: 2hp Honda 4 stroke outboard

I have an older model...12-15 yrs. Last year the clutch began to slip above 1/2 throttle...lots of revs but no extra speed.

The service man showed me the centrifical clutch ass'y which is a cup on the lower shaft driven by 2 spring loaded brake pads on the motor side. Apparently oil leaked from the crank seal over the years accumulating in the cup wetting the pads making them slip.

He cleaned the cup and pads with solvent, all were in good condition including the crank seal. It works fine now.

If you encounter this problem, make sure a hole or two are drilled in the cup perimeter preventing a recurrence.

Re: 2hp Honda 4 stroke outboard

I have the older version of that engine the BF2. It's a weird in between engine, the engine is air cooled and the exhaust is water cooled.

Good evening,
I have read your comments regarding intermediate shaft bushing on this and previous threads. I specialise solely in 2 and 2.3 Honda outboards in the uk -
Evans Marine Service Honda 2 and 2.3hp Outboard Specialists
You are partially correct with the bushing. There is a nylon bush in some engines but not others. Short shaft engines do not have the bush fitted and only some later longshaft models have this fitted. You can run these engines out of the water with or without bushing. The bush is approximately 6" above the anti cavitation plate so if you have a boat with a long transom it is likely that during operation the bush is not submerged. I have never seen any wear on these bushes and u run my engines just over the anti cavitation plate. The only issue you will have running out of water is potential over revving due to no restriction on the prop.
Kind regards Steve
