I have a pronto M61. Forward speed is very slow even when adjusted to higher speeds. Turning speed increases normally. Is there a problem in the joystick?


Has this chair got power raiser for seat? if so check it is fully down or check down micro switch. These will not go fast with the seat raised. A safety option built in.

You may not be deep enough in the water and it really is cavitation.

May want to check the lower oil for metal as a Mostly worn out gear can do that

It's normal for a gearbox in forward to "click" in one direction and be firm against the motor when turning against the gears normal rotation.

Mercury outboard 70 hp 1987 when in forward gear the prop turns one way when in neutrel spins both ways when in reverse the prop is locked both ways is my lower unit working property


mercury and others have a "sawtooth" cut for forward gear so the prop will rachet spin backward when dry tested, and a square clutch dog for reverse, which when it finally engages locks the prop in reverse. and will not spin in either direction.

So when you shift--- snap in in gear-- do not ease it in gear, as it will wear the dog out faster.

Boat does not plane


you could try a lower pitched prop.2" would up the revs by 400 revs.,which would up the revs ,but give you more low down thrust,and/or tucking the motor under more[if you have electric trim/tilt].thats a big boat and fair bit of weight for a 40hp..my 40hp merc is on a 13ft saracen,and with two of us it takes a while to get gooing.so i bought a ProPulse prop,with adjustable pitch.been god to try different pitches

Bogs out


First check the air cleaner. Clean or replace it. You need to set the mixtures for the carburetor. You will find a Low and High adjustment screw usually on the left or right side of the carburetor on the outside of the housing. At idle turn the screw in or clockwise until the rps starts to decrease. Then start turning it out till you hit max idle rpms. Turn screw back in a quarter to half turn and it should be idling smoothly. Be careful here and get someone to hold saw if necessary but hold in throttle to full speed and do the same with high adjustment screw. turn it in till rpm starts to drop then back it out until you get to max rpm and it won't go any higher then turn it back in a half a turn. After adjusting the mixture it might be necessary to readjust the idle speed.

Help. recently cavitated my 140 hp 1989 mercury outboard motor at high speed.I Removed the lower unit several times but only goes in forward about 5mph. Please help Tx jack


Not really sure what is wrong.Do all the gears work?Does the motor rev properly.Did you change the height of the motor.If the motor etc. are all ok and the motor cavitated at high speed,you may have spun the bush in the propeller hub.The symtoms are,everything works ok but the boat can rev but will have very little forward propulsion.If this is it,the prop needs to come off and taken to be rebushed.The bush stops major damage to the g/box if the prop strikes something.Hope this helps

Outboard problem


Check your prop...probably slightly bent and only is noticeable at higher rpms.
