    I have a 99 model Johnson 90hp V4. After the engine warms up you can hear a ticking sound. The ticking speed increases with engine rpm. It was more noticeable yesterday than it has been. When pulling the kids on the tube this summer it got where it wouldn't get up on plane. Reading about similar issues I'm inclined to believe its one side of the fuel pump going out. I would be glad to hear any other ideas though too

    If it were mine gonefishing I guess I would make a way to get closer to it like run it on the muffs..
    Separate engine noise from top bearing in lower unit..make sure all connections are tight going to vro and fuel pump...stuff like that...good luck
