So I have a question that may seem odd.. I have a 1954 Mighty Mite, and I was wondering.. Is the Throttle handle positioned forward, Low or Full speed?September 18, 2021 at 5:24 am #246837
Do you mean to start it? I’m not sure what the manual would say but I would do it at full speed. I mean, it’s not like it’s going to throw you out of the boat when it starts, right?

I mean in general, what position is Low speed, and which is High speed. If the lever is all the way forward, pointing at me, is that Low or High speed? Thank you.September 18, 2021 at 9:56 am #246848
Pointed right at you is medium speed. Pointing to your right, facing it (to the port side of the boat) is high speed and to your left facing it (stbd side) is basically stop. Of course, low is between medium and stop.

That makes sense, Low speed is between Medium and High haha. Thank youSeptember 19, 2021 at 5:38 am #246897
I wasn’t trying to be a wise guy. Really. It was important to realize that to the far left is OFF/STOP. I didn’t want you to expect it to run in that position, that’s all.

I didn’t think you were, sorry if you took my reply that way. I just thought it was funny, having low speed between Med and High, Not a Low, Med, High setting.
I’m glad you did point that that out, I have no way of knowing what the throttle positioning is, or documentation on position settings. that’s why I’m asking, Any and all info is appreciated.September 20, 2021 at 3:33 am #246927
Would a 1941 Muncie have a similar set up, High, Low and Medium?September 20, 2021 at 5:07 am #246928
That’s the way it is with all outboards that have the throttle on the front and that have the flywheel turn clockwise, when looking down on it….which is 99.99999% of all outboards. The only one I ever saw that turned counter clockwise was a Japanese WW2 era Showda. I hope I spelled that right.
