I purchased the engine brand new and installed it myself. Since the beginning, at full throttle RPMs do not go more than 2500. There are no alarms. It feels like the computer is cutting off the gas.
Marine Mechanic: Charles, Marine Mechanic replied 3 years ago
I see. When you go to shift the engine which cable moves first? throttle or shift?

Yes it is.

Olso engine feels same between trottle open 50% to 100%.

Look closely at the TPS on the engine. It is on the throttle body. Make sure that it is not loose and moving when a helper moves the throttle handle.
