Re: Universal M18 - stopping using throttle push back

Thanks guys, really appreciate your input.

I wish I could post pics but for now I'll make a verbal description.

There are two levers in the cockpit, one to select forward and reverse, and the other is the throttle lever.

The throttle lever can be pushed backward against a spring for roughly two inches, I held it there for around 5 seconds and nothing happened. I has friend push the lever back whilst I observed what happened. I could see a little bit of movement, but I'm talking less than a quarter of an inch.

The other engine control is a handle we pull up that we've been up using to stop the engine, this is connected to a different part of the engine about 4" aft of the throttle lever.

I apologise for not giving a clearer picture from the start.
