Expert:  Joe replied 1 year ago.

Good morning,

It does not appear that you are able to view my replies, so for now I am going to step out of this question and hopefully another expert can assist you.

Best of luck with the problem.

What happened to the answer to my first question
Expert:  Charles replied 1 year ago.

Hello, my name is***** will answer you question today. I have a few questions that I need for you to answer.

Is this a new install of the controller?

Has any work been done to the engine? If so, what was done?

Have you recently replaced the props?

How does the other engine operate?

Thanks for the reply.

When the prop was replaced, it is sounding like they installed a standard prop and not a counter rotating prop. that would make the gears seem reversed, even though they are not actually. If you have the boat out of the water, look at both props and see if the left is exactly like the right. If it is, that is the wrong prop. The left should have blades that go in the other direction.
