Question about Boating
I have a 88 Johnson 9.9 and i replaced the lower unit, but now it want run wide open.it runs fine hooked up to the water hose but when i put it in the lake it just runs half throttle.
Is it a reconditioned lower unit?
What sort of oil did you put in the lower unit?
Sounds like there is some drag in the lower unit causing the engine to bog down. It will work fine on a stand in neautral however.
How does it go in reverse on the lake? Can you get full throttle?
