That is no a valid model number. Without a model number I don't know what you have. Doesnt' sound like I am going to be able to help you with this one.

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
the model number comes directly from your manual
Expert:  Jason replied 3 months ago.

I don't know what you mean by "my" manual, but 60TTL is not a valid model number. I tried punching it into google and didn't get any results. Is there still a model ID tag on the clamp bracket?

Hello. My name is Tan.

Your engine is a 1989 60 hp.

Have you messed with the linkage on the carbs?

We need to check and make sure the throttle plates on the carbs are completely closed. The idle is controlled by the timing on this engine. So we will need a timing light to check idle and pick up timing.

Have you done anything to the linkage?

Do you have a timing light?
