Can't be much wrong. Remove the throttle cable and make sure it is free running and lubricated. Check the spring inside the carburetor.

SOURCE: help forum for outboard boat motors have a 1987 115 hp merc outboard the throttle cable will not move the throttle arm but when i take the cable off it works fine and i can move the arm by hand

repace the throttle cable
with use the inner cable wears grooves in the outer case and when tension is applied as when moving the lever , the strands of the cable jam in those grooves
noticable when disconnected as the cable strands just ride clear of the grooves

Fuel mix for 1960's Elgin (Sears) 7.5 hp, 2-cycle outboard, Model: 574.60081, SN: 62600710


28:1 (4.5 oz oil to a gallon gas) should provide adequate lubrication. If you start fouling plugs and it looks like you are killing mosquitos.. cut back to 32:1 (4.0 oz oil to a gallon gas)

Are the controls for a 1998 15 HP 2 stroke Mercury outboard compatible with a 2011 30 HP 4 stroke Mercury outboard


If your old engine/control has the same 'options' as the30hp, yes everything is compatible... (Electric start or trim )
The throttle and shift cables are allways compatible...

Have 115 Hp mercury outboard motor missing at full throttle and on idle. At mid throttle it is running fine. Any Idea what the problem could be. Thanks, Milton


Have your spark plugs changed AND carbs cleaned and adjusted.
Usually that can also be caused by a seized advance system ( plate under the flywheel, commanded to turn with the throttle linkage... )
