Go to http://www.boats.net. Let me ask you a question, is it 5 speed? And if so have you lost some or all speeds but 5?. I so, them you need to take the lower unit apart and you will find solder laying in the bottom. You will see that the speed control coil wires at one if the terminals on the brush board has no solder. Clean it up along with the wires so that you see copper and re-solder. This is due to poor quality control on soldering at the manufacturer. When you re-assemble tighten the bolt 45-50 in-lbs only. No more.

Unless you are mechanically inclined, dont attempt this. Take the lower unit apart by removing the prop and removing the two bolts that hold the forward and aft housing to the center housing. Fwd being the cone shaped part. Pull the aft housing away from the motor so you can inspect the connections to the board that holds the brushes and the soldered wiring terminals. You should find the solder missing from at least one of the terminals that connects the wiring from the foot switch to the speed control windings inside the aft housing. Clean up the terminal and wiring and re-solder. Also re-flow the solder on the other terminals. Clean up the seals and the area where the seals meet the housing parts. Replace seals if damaged. Reassemble the lower unit and torque the bolts 45-50 in-lbs and no more otherwise you will fail the seals. This problem is due to a "cold" solder joint that creates a high resistance to elec current flow and heats enough to melt the solder. This is a result of poor quality control at the manufacturer. Good luck.
