Hello my name is ***** ***** am I speaking with? There isn't any kind of defect on the engine, regardless of what other folks might have said. When properly set up these outboard shift just fine.
I have a couple of questions back to you. First, has the engine ever been any different/better in the past for you? What are your idle rpms reading with the boat in the water, and in forward gear?

Expert:  Jason replied 2 years ago.
I do offer phone calls but the website does charge extra for them (30$). I will send the information for that over to your email address. If you would like the phone call you can accept the offer in the email address and then I can get your number. If you prefer to stay online, you can decline or ignore that offer. -Jason

Is this on top of the other fees?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
So far I haven't found out anything on my motor.
Expert:  Jason replied 2 years ago.
Correct, it would be on top what you have paid so far.
As for finding anything out, I haven't heard back anything about the questions I had asked you in my first reply.
