    Default 90 HP Force stalling trouble

    I have a 1990 Bayliner Capri with a 90 HP Force outboard. I just bought it last summer and only took it out twice. It starts right up and idles OK, but as soon as I put it in gear, it stalls out. Its my first boat and really don't know where to begin. Any suggestions?

    Sounds like it's either idling too low or you have an issue with your shift lever adjustment.
    You can't demand special privileges and be my equal at the same time.

    1960 or 61 Glastron 16' with original 40HP Johnson (my grandfather's old boat)
    14' Old Town canoe (just add a paddle and it always runs )

    It runs OK if I just put throttle all the forward and then ease it back to a no wake speed but its not good to do at the Marina obviously.
