Many of those gave a short buzz to tell you they were working. It's when your running and they buzz you need to shut down immediatly and find out what is wrong (engine heat, no oil ??_)

I have a 1974 evinrude outboard motor. I need to know how to connect the motor to the quicksilver steering rod?

locate a clymer service manual for your engine. if you have a local dealer selling used boats and motors you may be able to ask nicely and get the information needed. you may be able to negotiate a reasonable deal to have the work done.

Just bought boat & prop will not in gage all the time

put your motor on the garden hose after you remove the propeller (you don't want to step into a spinning blade). remove the cover and start the motor.

Have some one shift the motor (without engaging the throttle).. This will show you which cable is the shift cable.Disconnect the shifter, and while it's running, shift it full forward and full reverse to fin the halfway point. Next return the control box to neutral and adjust the connector. Start it up and see if the control box will shift the gear box as far as you did by hand. If not you need to take the control box apart and move the cable anchor so you get more movement. Get a repair book and take pictures as the guts of a control box can be VERY confusing.

I have a quicksilver throttle control side mount and when the water hit the side of the boat an alarm whent off it happened 2-3 times,than i know keeps beeping it will not stop,how can i stop this and...

from what i have learned... (i have the same problem), is that it will beep for 2 reasons that i know of, water or oil. check your waterflow out of the motor, it should be ripping right out with good force. If not, your looking at a cooling problem. Check the impeller, its located in the lower unit of the motor, have you run the engine out of water? or even tuned the engine over quite a bit out of water? if so replace the impeller asap! If its not the cooling its an oil problem. In a lot of cases its an oil sensor, if so replace it fairly cheaply, or it could be that the injection system isnt working properly... this is an expensive fix the engine has to be completely broken down, what i did was just syphon the oil out of the reservoir, and mixed the oil into the fuel! If it comes down to it just mix it 50:1. that way you dont ruin your engine, as far as the beeping, it wont stop it unless its that stupid sensor, i guess just unplug it?

My throttel unit buzze while the motor is

Hello Donald.
You don't say what year yours is so I will generalize.
Inside the remote control is a warning buzzer that will sound if there is a problem.
It may be telling you of an overheating condition or if it has low oil in the reservoir.
If both of these conditions are OK you may have a short in the harness or the sensors.
Hope this helps you along.
Good luck fishing !

In the control box of an evinrude 115 vro v4 is an alarm why does it go off every 15-20 min when the motor running

The warning horn on a V.R.O. system ( variable ratio oilier) warns you of three problems. (1) LOW OIL. means the remote oil tank in the boat is near empty or empty(2) NO OIL. means there is no oil getting to the V.R.O. .problem is, clogged line or the diaphragm in the V.R.O is blown.(3) OVERHEAT. means the engine is overheating. The V.R.O is you lift and pressure pump for fuel and oil. plus it mixes the oil and gas to proper ratio. Three warning, three senders. LOW OIL sender is in the remote oil tank in your boat. NO OIL sender is in the V.R.O.. and the OVERHEAT sender is on one or both cylinder heads of a the engine depending on the year model
