    Hi, you posted awhile ago but I'll let you know what it might be in case the problem still exists. Check the throttle mechanical control linkage at the motor-housing to carbs for mis-adjustment. There's also a good chance the problem may be within the helm control unit though generally the throttle-up/down are activated from the same lever and cable.

    Mariner throttle issue.

    Hi Folks, I have a 1983 Mariner 80HP Outboard, that has a throttle issue. Acceleration is not too bad from a dead stop to full throttle, however as soon as I move the lever back ever so slightly to slow down, the motor slows down very rapidly and almost puts me through the windshield. I have tried lubricating the control line and any moving parts I can find on the motor but it still does the same thing. I am looking to solve this problem so if anyone can help me I sure would appriciate it.

    Thanks,

    DL
