there's a screen at the base that might be plugged up - change fuel filter lately?

spray some penetrating oil on that shaft coupler - it's getting icky... - keep it clean up - so it can be separated when you need an alignment...

no - would that be next to check? Any instruction you can direct me to? Based on symptom do you feel a fuel related issue is most logical culprit?

local mc dealer went out of business. now closest is 2 hours away and across the bay bridge in Annapolis md. Had it winterized on 12/13 at a reputable boat yard (but NOT as MC expert). They called me a work and indicated they recommended a bronze thru hall 1 1/4 which they installed. Not sure why after all these years now this was required but since they recommended I authorized. I wonder when they were moving all items around to install this if they could have accidentally moved something?

thanks but sorry to say I need some assistance in knowing where the shaft coupler is. I assume that is where the prop shaft enters the boat? Is so I will gladly put some pentrating oil there if you could give me some suggestion on a brand to use...would that be wd40?

unless there is a sort of cruise control on the boat - could also be a bad Throttle position sensor - which based on your comments you made.

If you haven't every removed a fuel pump I suggest a good marine mechanic in your area.

Throttle Cable Attachment

My mechanic who winterized he may have forgot to recconnect throttle cable. He is an hour away and told me to check the socket on the throttle is (assumed item lableed as C in the picture posted here)and find the cable with the socket (assumed to be D in the photo) and connect them. Can anyone give me simple instruction that a novice like me can follow to connect these. I tried to slide the brass sleeve back on D to expose a hole that then I could use to insert onto the socket C. But no luck I found no hold and can't determine how to connect the two (assuming they should be).
