Thanks. The friend I got the motor from told me he put new points and condensers on it for me and I don't think he got the nut tight enough. As long as I am there how can I set the timing on it to be sure it`s right

Evinrude manual says 60 to 65 foot pounds of torque. If you don't put the proper torque on the flywheel nut you will shear off the key.

65 foot pounds.

Make sure all surfaces are very clean with no oily residue.

Hi Piper. I had the same happen to my 35hp. I got my key from marineengines.com has them. I think the part number is 0302602. I think it’s listed in the crankshaft group under Model RD19... . I’ve attached a pic of my engine. Hope this helps!

I started up my 57 35 Johnson Sunday and it coughed kicked back and sheared the flywheel key. Does anyone know where I can get one and what size they are?
