Great white wont turn motor runs but wont turn

Do you mean you can hear the motor turn but the propellor doesn't turn?
Then check the break-pin of the propellor. It's a security device that will break when the propellor hits an object in the water...

Sometimes IR 30 goes into a strained free wheeling state

Did you change the 3 phase motor out with a single phase motor? A 3 phase motor cannot be made to run on single phase.

60 hp manier motor was running great I turned the boat around gave it gas and it would not push the boat the prop is free wheeling

This means a shear pin or rubber hub may have broken. Take the prop off and look at the center. If there is rubber kind of crumbling thats the problem. Or if you see something like a broken nail-thats a shear pin. However if neither is true then unplug the sparkplug boots. Put the throttle in forward and turn the shaft by hand. If it still freewheels the shiftrod came apart inside the housing. You may want to take it in because the attaching parts or something in the gearbox came apart.

Outboard motor won't run under load

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.
