    "Terrance, Depending on the year, the 115 HP mercs were a bit different. There may be a screw marked "Idle Stop". If so, the throttle should be pushed against the screw, when the motor is in neutral. If not, you can adjust the throttle cable barrell nut to push the throttle against the stop. You may also back off the idle stop screw a bit to lower the idle speed, in conjunction with adjustment of the throttle cable barrell nut."
