F - 2 CONTROL OPERATION - GENERAL
A. Carbureted Engines
Control systems permit operation of the engine’s throt-
tle and shift mechanisms. They consist of three major
components; the control, the throttle and shift cables.
The shift mechanism on the controls can be
disengaged to allow for easier starting and engine
warm-up. See Figure F-1. To disengage:
Your Four Winns boat is equipped with a single lever,
side mount control. This allows you to select forward
or reverse gear, regulate engine speed, and ensure
shifting is done at low engine speed.
1. Place control handle in neutral position (B).
Press both neutral lock button (A) and shift
disengage button (C).
A “start-in-neutral-only” feature which prevents starting
in gear is included. Refer to F-3 Neutral Safety Switch
in this section.
3. Move control handle forward to increase throttle.
Also, the side mount control has a neutral lock button
to prevent accidental shifting. It must be squeezed to
permit shifting from neutral to forward or reverse.
Built into the control is a trim control which you can
use to adjust the position of the outdrive. Pressing the
switch in the UP position moves the outdrive out and
away from the transom. Pressing the switch in the
DOWN position moves the outdrive in closer to the
transom. The switch returns to its center neutral
position when released. For additional information
see Section E-5.
Figure F-1: Control Operation
The neutral lock and shift mechanism will automat-
ically engage when the control handle is returned to
the neutral position.
Neutral is in the center or straight up position. Rotating
the control forward shifts the engine into forward. Rotat-
ing the control aft shifts the engine into reverse. Moving
the lever further forward or aft increases engine speed.
Shift Mechanism Engaged (D).
When shifting, ensure engine speed is below
00 RPM to avoid damaging the shifting
5. Shift Mechanism Disengaged (E).
6. Reverse Shift Range (F).
Reverse Throttle Range (G).
Forward Shift Range (H).
Allow the engine to warm up before engaging
the shift control. Monitor all instruments while
engine is idling during warm-up.
9. Forward Throttle Range (I).
Refer to the engine manual, included in the owner’s
packet, for additional information on control operation.
Speciﬁc information on controls and their opera tion can
be found in the engine manufacturer’s manual included
in the owner’s packet.
