SIR, I OWN A 1989 EVINRUDE 48 HP OUTBOARD MOTOR WHICH DIES WHEN I SHIFT FROM NUETRAL TO EITHER FORWARD OR REVERSE. I SUSPECT THE IDLE RPM TO BE TOO LOW. I DON'T KNOW HOW TO AJUST THE IDLE HIGHER IF THIS IS INDEED THE PROBLEM. WILL YOU HELP ME. THANK YOU! MY NAME IS FRED, MY E-MAIL ADDRESS IS: MINIMOO@BRIGHT.NET

idle adjustment could be because everything is not in sync.your best bet is to take it to a dealer.
