SOURCE: 1974 60hp johnson outboard won't run on full throttle.

Carbs probably need to be cleaned and re-built. Common problem in outboards that havent been run in a while

Sound like the fuel pump is not keeping up with the engine's demand. Check it out. Good luck. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: only runs on full throttle

Are you saying full throttle, or full choke? if full throttle, you should be able to set the idle up. the idle screw will be the one when you give it gas, it will be the screw on you'r throttle linkage. If full choke, maybe the spark arrestor is plugged. You can remove it by removing the muffler.It would be between the muffler and cylinder head. You don't need this to run.I hope any thing I posted will help.

SOURCE: mcculloch strimmer/brush cutter - cuts out when throttle opened

Hi sounds like it could need a diaphram kit in the carby if it has mixture screws one markedl for low speed and one marked h for high speed you can try winding out the low speed screw a bit but if that does not work it will definatly need a kit.

SOURCE: 2007 FX Waverunner 1100, turning left the engine

First, I'd check the routing on your throttle cable. make sure that at left and right turn, it has slack and no tight spots. Assuming your fuel stystem is clean, that pretty much leaves a ground/short problem somewhere. The fact that it happens at left turn tells me it's in the wiring that routes through the controls- perhaps the kill switch wiring. Something somewhere has rubbed the insulation off the wiring, and it's being moved when you turn left, so it shorts against metal. This will be the same metal point that rubbed it raw.
A. Check the throttle cable routing. Move the bars back and forth, and watch for a tight spot.
B. Check your wirinig harness from the bars to the main wiring harness, and look for signs of rubbing or wear.

What would cause a Suzuki 140 4 stroke outboard motor to bog down at full throttle?

that I indicative of fuel starvation, especially at open throttle. Check the vents on the fuel tanks and look for kinks in the fuel line. Also replace inline fuel filter if you have one.

If that doesn't fix it, my advice is to have it serviced at a marine engineer. You don't want to break down on water.

My 96 suzuki quadrunner 250 and I thought my throttle cable was in a bind not in a bind idles fast when you turn right what is wrong

Possibly if moisture has got in and created rust then you have a problem. With the engine not running twist the throttle very slowly to full limit then let go the spring should snap the whole thing shut instantly. If this does not happen the cable is binding. Undo the cable at the twist grip end and get as much lube down it as possible a clamp type cable luber will help.

Have 115 Hp mercury outboard motor missing at full throttle and on idle. At mid throttle it is running fine. Any Idea what the problem could be. Thanks, Milton

Have your spark plugs changed AND carbs cleaned and adjusted.
Usually that can also be caused by a seized advance system ( plate under the flywheel, commanded to turn with the throttle linkage... )

I have a Suzuki 4 stroke 40 HP outboard motor that sputters while in full throttle. How can I fix this?

this sounds like the high idle circuit of carberetor has debri in the needle. I would consider cleaning carb and try again. If still continues then this would make me look at fuel pump. These 2 things are where you need to start.

Be sure to run the recommended fuel mix. most modern 2 stroke outboard engines run on 100 to 1, some times the mix is on a decal inside the cowl.

sound like the carbs need to be synced if throttle plates are fully closed at start it would cause a rich condition and no need for a choke becase there is very little air passing through mostly fuel if they are not eqaul there would be hesitation when opening throttles til about 1/4 throttle
