I have 1969 5hp Johnson. Starts and runs good, but will only push a 14ft row boat slow at low to medium rpm. When at higher rpm the the motor just revs up and the boat slows down to almost nothing just like it has seaweed around prop.Any help would be great.

2000 evenrude 150 fitch when started idles at 4000 rpm

This is a known issue. Check all your linkages and throttle stop screws. Also check there is slack in the throttle cable when the control lever is centred and that the hand throttle lever isn't activated. Check the inlet manifolds for tightness and leaks.

Take a look at these forums and videos.

    The trim/tilt on my 97 Johnson 150 outboard is not moving. Tilt motor runs. Some time ago my mechanic told me not to run the tilt all the way to the top, which is, I think, what happened. Any ideas on...

    Make sure there is not a spring loaded locking lift latch engauged. If there is you will see a little movement and then the motor will sound slower. If there is no movement and the motor runs the same speed with no change you are low on hydraulic tilt and trim fluid.

    40 hp mariner outboard runs good in gear ,but will shut-off in neutral ,won,t idle

    You need to pull the cover and track where the trottle cable goes to on the motor. If you have someone open and close the throttle while you're watching you will find the linkage that it controls. There should be some kind of an idle ajustment screw there that you can readjust to increase your idle.

    No power

    sounds like a carb problem, you should have them cleaned and re-built
