How do you test a Johnson VRO pump?
Start the engine, and monitor the pump cycles by using a fuel pressure gauge or by putting light finger pressure on the outlet hose.
- At 800 RPM, the oil level in the hose should drop 1″ in approx. 5 pulses.
- At full throttle, the oil level should drop 1″ in approx. 3 pulses.
What does VRO mean on a Johnson outboard?
Variable Ratio Oiling
Sorrry, couldn’t resist, it stands for Variable Ratio Oiling. Basically it works like most two stroke oiling systems by varying the amount of oil needed to mix with the gas for your motor.
How do you test a VRO alarm?
To check for a “no oil” hook your 50:1 fuel system up, disconnect the oil line at the vro and start it up and let it run. When you hear the “no oil” alarm (beep every 2 seconds), hook up the oil line with the mtr still running without hitting the oil primer bulb and let it run till the alarm goes off.
How does VRO pump work?
Since 1993, the VRO is actually called an oil metering system (OMS). Directly connected to the air motor is the fuel pump and the oil pump. The travel of the air motor pumps the fuel and the oil together to the carburetors and the alarm system monitors the oil pressure counts.

How does a VRO fuel pump work?
The fuel pump, which is located in the middle chamber of the VRO, consists of a push-pull piston (orange) and diaphragm with a flapper valve and an inlet check valve. A rod connects the fuel pump piston (orange) directly to the air motor piston (dark green) and the two chambers are sealed from each other by an o-ring.
What does a VRO fuel pump do?
The travel of the air motor pumps the fuel and the oil together to the carburetors and the alarm system monitors the oil pressure counts. Just like manually premixing the oil and gas, the VRO (OMS) automatically does the same thing and sends that fuel mixture to the carburetors.
Is the VRO oil pump still attached to the engine?
There will be one electrical connection that still attaches the VRO oil pump to the engine. That is the low/no oil sensor. You can disconnect that. Tape up the other end and tuck it so that it is not in the way of anything. I wanted to replace all of my fuel lines when doing this so had to disconnect the hoses from the manifold.
When to change fuel filter on Johnson Evinrude VRO?
I ordered the original OEM screws for my 40hp Johnson, OMC part # 0314417.This might also be a good time to change the fuel filter if it’s due for a change. I opted to go with a Edelbrock filter.
How big is the barb on A VRO oil pump?
The main fuel line nipple to the manifold is a 3/8″barb and the three nipples feeding the carburetor are 3/16″ barb fittings. I can send you a complete list if you want to assemble one yourself. The overall cost was around $35, far less than the $85 for the OEM part!
Where is the oil pump on a Johnson Evinrude?
On the older Johnson and Evinrude models (mine is 40hp), you’ll find the port and mounts on the starboard side of the engine. It will be between the starter and the main battery connector (positive). You may have to do a little research for your model, but most outboards with VRO oil pumps have the second option for a fuel pump only.
