Re: Universal M18 - stopping using throttle push back

Thanks jjablonowski.

From memory 1) and 2) are the same. 3) has barely any movement at the engine end.

If 3) also opens the engine throttle how does it's action stop the engine?

I would expect 3) to close the throttle completely and starve the engine of fuel causing it to stop. I tried to push the throttle closed by hand but it didn't move, though I didn't get too forceful.

I'm away from the boat for the week but will review it's action next time.
