    i have an evinrude 40 and had the lower unit replaced early last year.it worked fine up until 2 weeks ago.it acts like it wants to engage by making the motor "kick".the higher the throttle,the more it trys to engage.does this sound like a lower unit problem?i have already called the place that put in the lower unit and they just said to bring it in so its prob still under warranty.does this problem sound familiar to anyone?

    Could be linkage. If it's under warranty and you're sure it's something they touched, let them worry about it:wink:
