on my engine it is not an issue as i had a throttle stop and carb same for 9.9 and 15 but, if on earlier engines they used a different carb for the 15hp with different settings then care would need to be taken
i certainly would not want to suggest that someone do something that then caused early engine failure!!!
i will leave it to others to recommend if only the reed block needs changing or adjusting or if the carb would need changing as well
Hey JW, i am hoping to get a nice technical explaination and sketch from you with your recommendations......
