>Hi Gary, With the help of an assistant, check that the cable is connected correctly to the Morse control, by operating the throttle lever and watching the movement of the cable at the carb. Make sure that the inner cable returns properly when the Morse control is in neutral and that the throttle link on the carb goes right back to the stop. If all of that is correct, slacken the throttle stop screw and see if the revs fall. If they do try a combination of cable and throttle stop adjustment to reduce the revs. My old 27 used to idle at about 800 revs, which was just enough to engage gear without stalling and propell the boat along on tickover. Hope this helps,
