SOURCE: We have very little reverse any thing above idle

There are two things to look for. With the motor off disconnect the shift cable. Pull the boots off the plugs so the engine can't kick back. Grab the shift lever directly on the motor and pull it in the direction reverse is. Turn the prop and you should be able to feel reverse click in. If you just barely feel it "tick" the gears, the shift rod inside the housing is not adjusted. If the reverse "bites" into place as good as forward then leave it is that position. Next, line up the shift cable but DO NOT connect the end with the shift lever. Put the cable in reverse and you will see a gap from the old setting to the where it has to be to work correctly. Then its as simply as adjusting the shift cable to match the lever.
The second possibility is the rubber hub in the prop. It could be slipping. But usually its gone in both directions when this part breaks.

SOURCE: 9.9 johnson 4 stroke wo'nt idle

Your cabs need rebuild, something is stuck in the carb or air line cracked

If you have rebuilt the carb check for carb gaskett leak that caused and let the air flow in
When to choke is on the air is block and prevent air flow but allowed small amount of air to keep the engine running
After your engine warmed up the heat in the compression burn much faster so you have to let air in by turn off the choke
Good luck

SOURCE: I have a 1970's 25hp Johnson outboard motor. Last

Hello Adam.
If your propeller is OK, your lower unit will need some repair. It may be as simple as a clutch dog worn and not engaging the gear. Usually they give warnings of problems by jumping out of gear though.
Other possibilities are broken driveshaft, propshaft, or gears. If it goes into reverse the shafts are OK and the clutch and forward gear become suspect.
It was common for these engines to break at the top of the driveshaft where they were tapered.This would give you no motion at all and no previous warning of a problem.
Check the gear lube for metal particles and signs of water intrusion. I hope your repair is an easy one.
