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.

My 15 hp 4 stroke is pushing my boat as fast as it can at half throttle any more throttle and it just revs up and it goes slower and I just put a new hub and prop on what could be causing this?


Hi Michael.
Generally when that happens the prop is cavitating,
Possibly did the person that sold you the prop, gave you the wrong pitch? if it's smaller they tend to over rev causing it to cavitate
Good luck........

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.

Free download for repair manual for an Evinrude 1987 40HP outboard motor


My outboard motor is old and used.When I went to run it for the first time everything worked except when I went to put it in forward gear the boat went slowly but when I gave it more gas the engine just reved up but the boat wasn't going any faster.The motor is 40hp gale model.I think because it is bought used the prop is not the right one and it seems like it's slipping as I go faster.
I would appreciate any feedback on this problem.

Thax, Don

I have a 2005 90hp yamaha on a 17' xpress bass boat. i can only turn 5200 rpm when you get to 4800 rpm the boat starts bouncing.


Check the running height of the motor.The prop shaft should be about one inch below the straight line of the bottom of the running bottom of the boat.With a cleaver prop it may be lower.A chopper prop is the best and you can run every bit of that.2 inches if pitch is = to about 500 revs.Try a few props 1st before you pay the dollars for a new one.The bouncing is the wrong transom height and prop.You don,t need a cav plate if the boat is set up right.(a cav plate extension like a manta).Bad dealers may want to sell you these.A well set up boat doesn't.I've set up and run a lot of ski racing boats and all have never needed any "bolt on parts".Its mainly a motor height and prop selection thing.Hope this helps

2005 Mercury 50hp 2-stroke outboard motor very sluggish when accelerating, stalled twice when trying to exceed 50% throttle capacity. Last time I used my boat was about two months ago, so I don't think bad...


The carberator is gravity fed and there is propbably gunk in it, when you give it more throttle, it needs more gas but can't get it. Then a build up of gas in the float bowl occurs and nothing works right. It has happened to me and its aggravating, do a complete rebuild on the carb or just replace it and you will be happier quicker.

Hope this helps, Coachtheune

Missing operators manual for Evinrude 2 hp outboard motor


Your best bet is ebay for a replacement user manual. Take a look around, you will come across one... For the meantime, gas oil ratio should be 50 parts gas to 1 part oil, i.e. 50:1. General care: Dont go full throttle for any length of time. Cruise of 3/4 throttle... Always flush engine after use in saltwater, including washing down exterior. Keep spark plugs in good order and check prop for fishing line wrapped around in near the prop hub. Otherwise, get a yearly service and have them check the water pump and replace as needed, get it tuned etc and gearbox oil changed.

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.
