Guest Posted August 28, 2009 Share Posted August 28, 2009 Got a bit of a problem with a Mariner 20 outboard motor. Currently moored at Stalham. The motor starts but it does not appear to be engaging gear when selecting forward or reverse. Also the tilting of the outboard is not operating properly. Normally you have to put the throttle lever in forward position to enable the engine to be tilted out of the water. I think some kind of linkage is not operating properly to allow the engine to go into gear and this is also affecting the tilt operation. Anyway I think I need someone with a bit more experience of fixing outboards. Does anyone know anyone that can help. I have the trailer 1/4 mile away but no propulsion to get there. Fixing the engine while on the trailer would obviously be the best course of action unless its an easy fix. I will ask at Richardsons tomorrow, but they will be very busy. Any one with advice or contacts that can help would be appreciated. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
