Repace the throttle cable
with use the inner cable wears grooves in the outer case and when tension is applied as when moving the lever , the strands of the cable jam in those grooves
noticable when disconnected as the cable strands just ride clear of the grooves

1971 MERCURY OUTBOARD ENGINE REVS WHEN PUT IN REVERSE


is that on the remote control lever ? if yes then adjust the throttle cable to push against the throttle stop on the engine end so when you select gears it only moves when you go to accelerate ! mite need to adjust the carb pickup to align with mark on main lever that moves the timing rod to the trigger under the flywheel !

Our 40 Merc Won't open all the way up under load.


A couple of possibilities are the spark advance and the fuel line. Carburetors can do it as well as a clogged screen on the fuel pump. So can a bad coil.

Look for electrical parts under the flywheel area of the motor. When you move the throttle there should be movement of the stator to advance the spark. Check for binding wires or disconnected linkage.
See if the spark is jumping strong to the plugs for coil strength or have it tested.
Check fuel pump screen and diaphram.
Before messing with carbs-disconnect cables for throttle on boat. Work by hand directly at motor. You may have cables restricting movement.
Thats about all I can think of. Let us know of outcome.
