Hello my name is ***** ***** am I speaking with?
Is this a tiller control, or remote control model?
Hi Brad. Did you catch my last message?
Is this a tiller control or remote control model?
Are you able to rev the engine up in neutral?
Not able to as in your remote control will not allow for it, or not able to as in you tried, but the engine still stalls?
Are you near the engine now?
Pop the engine cover off. Go over to the carbs. Have a helper start the engine up, and then by hand open the throttle linkage on the carbs and see if it will stay running at a higher rpm.
Hmmm.... Can you double check that serial number. A 2002 40 should be carbureted. I just went to run the serial and it came up invalid.
Yeah that's the number. For some reason it doesn't take in Mercurys dealer network. Because it's fuel injected its' going to have to get hooked up to a scan tool. This doesn't sound like something i'm going to be able to help you out with here.
You are welcome, good luck.
