Disconnect the cables at the engine end. The gear selector should be in the middle of it's slider track, and the prop spin freely.
Also the throttle should sit at the idle position.
The remote cable ends should sit ready to connect easily without forcing them to the throttle / gear linkages.
You could start the engine without the remote cables connected if you want to check the engine over.

And going by his performance so far, it might be best to remove the prop first before starting the motor again!

JSP you may find he prop will turn very slowly even when out of gear. My old Evinrude did this sometimes.

If the gear is engaged even at tick over it will be spinning quite fast.

Shut it diggler
Right not been able to go back out to sort it until now. Have changed the links over in the control box. Managed to download a manual for the engine. The cable for the gear slider was miles out. And I didn't do it All sorted now thanks
Now, best way to make the peace with the bloke next door. Don't really see the problem. I mean come on, how many times has someone washed the whole front of your house for free?

Yeah it was spinning quite fast. And I know the merc I had used to spin slowly when ticking over. Prop is free to turn now and I'm going to give it a run in the tank again tomorrow. Cheers



Right, next job............................................... .....................

Nope, on the few outboards I've owned the neutral switch has been on the engine as well.

Pre '90s carbed Yam 115s don't.

JSP, before you try and fire it up, make sure that the fast idle lever is working the throttle not the gears

I'll double check but I'm feeling the urge to empty that amount of water again in one go. See if I can get next door but one this time
