According to the timing light the spark is not advancing and my maximum rpm in gear is 3400rpm
I read in a reply regarding this problem on a twin install (Mitch) that perhaps the neutral switch inside the engine cowl may be stuck in the neutral position,is this switch easy to find if it is on my motor?
Thank's in advance guys
I looked today and couldn't find a limp home switch under the cowling near the gear linkage so it look's like start at the throttle position sensor unit and work my way back to the ignition unit
Glad the boat is still useable up to 2200 rpm so I can at least go fishing
