    Default 1984 Evinrude 4hp Throttle Issue

    I just bought this outboard and am running her on a bracket in a bucket of water. When she is out of gear, she starts up ok, but she shuts down when I decrease the throttle.

    Start position


    Where she cuts off


    All and any feedback is appreciated.

    She is out of gear the entire time.

    Figured it out, I had the idle rpm's set too low.
