    "Hello, My 1983 Johnson 70Hp has no throttle response in reverse. It runs out great in forward gear all the way to WOT. However, in reverse gear I can't even pull myself off the bank after parking. It won't rev beyond idle in reverse. Any ideas??? Thanks"

    "Lets see, it has two cables from the control box. One shifts gears, the other works the throttle. It doesn't have a separate throttle cable for reverse. Although I have never heard of this problem, it must logically be a problem in the control box itself. Must have a broken pin, lever, or something that is preventing the throttle cable advancing while in reverse."
