. If engine does not start after step 3:
2. Turn the key switch to start and hold until engine
starts, for no longer than 10 seconds. If engine
does not start, let go momentarily, then try again.
a. Move the remote control handle/throttle lever to
full throttle position, then return to 1/4 throttle.
As soon as engine starts, release key to ON
b. Turn ignition key to START. Release key when
engine starts and allow switch to return to ON
Priming is not necessary for EFI engines.
Refer to the engine owner’s manual for
D. Warm Engine Starting (Carbureted Engines)
Move control handle to the neutral detent (idle)
F. Shifting and Control Speed
Turn key switch to START position and hold until
engine starts, but DO NOT hold in start position
for more than ten seconds. If engine does not start,
let go momentarily, then try again.
1. Move control handle to the neutral detent (idle)
position. This will engage neutral start switch and
allow engine to start.
As soon as engine starts, release key to the ON
or RUN position.
DO NOT shift into FORWARD or REVERSE
unless engine is running. Damage to the shift
system could result from trying to shift without
the engine running. Carefully check function of
all control and engine systems before leaving
If engine ﬂoods:
Disengage shift. Move handle to full throttle
Turn key switch to the START position.
To go FORWARD - actuate the neutral lock
mechanism and move the shift handle
forward. Throttle movement will begin after
forward gear engagement.
Immediately move the throttle levers to the idle
position when the engine starts.
Failure to move the throttle handle to the idle
position immediately when engine starts will
allow engine to “over-rev” and engine damage
could result. “Over-revving” engine after off-
season storage could also damage the water
pump impeller. When starting engine for the
ﬁrst time after off-season storage, always idle
engine for several minutes to allow the water
pump to prime.
3. To go in REVERSE - actuate the neutral lock-
mechanism and move the shift handle rearward.
Throttle movement will begin after reverse gear
DO NOT shift from forward to reverse when
the boat is planing.
DO NOT shift if engine speed is over 800 rpm.
NEVER turn key to START position when
engine is running.
To go from FORWARD to REVERSE, or
REVERSE to FORWARD; always pause at NEU-
TRAL and allow engine speed to return to idle.
E. Cold / Warm Engine Start (EFI Engines)
Move the control handle to neutral detent (idle)
