Tickover should be around 1000 rpm then when in gear about 700 to 800 rpm but try as little as possible so engine is happy not to stall when in lake ! depends what pitch prop used also , bigger the pitch more drag ! dont adjust the cable , adjust the throttle stop on the carbs !

See if you can turn down the base idle some. Then check your gear lube, sometimes you can get an airpocket and the top end is dry. Last, if still not fixed, see if you can adjust the cables so that the throttle RPM changes after the gears do.

You want a little lag in the throttle so you don't take out a dock when coming onshore.

Why would my 8 horse 4stroke honda outboard motor run fine in neutral but will not move in forward or reverse?


If it stalls out when putting it forward or reverse, then the problem could be a jammed gear train. If it still runs when shifted into gear but doesn't spin the prop, then the prop shear pin may have broken. This is done to prevent engine damage if the prop hits something hard such as an underwater log or such.

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.

Gear shifter for 40 h. p. mariner outboard


With your lower unit off have someone shift the engine into forward while watching the gear shift select shaft's rotation,let gearshift remain in forward,now place your lower unit in forward and reinstall. In the future just put engine in forward when installing a water pump as there won't be a need to move gearshift

Mercury 4 hp outboard engine wont go into gear


The lower gears arent hard to change, if your in there might as well get all of them there are only a few. the lshift lever does nothing but move the gears forward and back to engage forward and reverse, just pay extra attention to keep it water tight when done. A dealer should have the assembly chart for easy fix
