If the picture I posted looks like your linkage,the part I circled should move forward after about half throttle. Do the same test again and see if you can push the arm connected to the bar i circled forward.It should move freely.If that arm that connects under the flywheel is in the same position from idle to full throttle position you are not advancing the timing. Yes you can do this with the engine off.
I would get a service manual and it should explain the sequence of the throttle and timing.

You said the upper cable starts moving toward the bow? The system is a push to open and pull to close. The long black part of the cable attached to the vertical arm should be the only part moving and it should move rearward forcing the upper part of the arm forward. Is it a small black part moving toward the bow and does that part have what looks like a serrated thumb wheel on it? If so it is called a trunion and should be captured by the stainless piece the same as the lower cable trunion is. Could be when you mounted and hooked up the engine this was not done properly?

Hi

I forgot forgot mention in the above linkage picture you can see two channels in the aluminum. Should the linkage be going through there?

Your control cables are not connected! See my last post.
That's what I thought based on your last post. Get them adjusted then connect them. Pull the cover off of the trunion anchor bracket (stainless cover over the top of the "U" shaped openings just below your cables).
Starting with the shift cable.
Find the "slop center" of the neutral position on the engine shift lever. Then, by pulling and pushing the cable end, find the "slop center" of the cable with the control box in neutral.
With the two centers found, adjust the trunion on the cable until it slips into the trunion anchor without moving the cable one way or the other.
Throttle cable.
The throttle cable should be adjusted to where it holds the throttle arm closed with just a little tension. Just enough that it returns to the fully closed position every time the throttle handle is returned to idle.
On the shift side the cable is always adjusted to the engine, not the other way around....ever.

Thanks for the info.

I have a service manual but it's a text based.

I'll try try to find a YouTube video to explain the process.

Once he gets those cables adjusted he will be looking for a prop, that small prop will make that 70 scream on a 16' boat. LOL

If anyone has a similar motor and can take a picture of how the linkages are routed it would be appreciated.

Hi,

cables put back they way they are supposed to.

Just hoping for a somewhat warm day this week to take it out for a test drive.

Thanks for the help,

Alex

I managed to get the boat out this afternoon. The water was a bit choppy but I managed to get it up to 35 MPH.

The ride was wild I thought the boat was about to tear itself a part.

There are five holes to set the tilt of the motor. Initially the motor was in the 4th hole away from the stern. I could not seem to get the boat to plane. The bow would not seem to go down at speed.

I then tilted the motor to the 3rd middle spot and things seemed to be better. It still took a bit of time for the bow to drop.

I think I will have to play around with it perhaps there is another configuration that will drop the bow down faster.

Thanks

The closer in, toward the transom, the faster the boat will plane.
Always a trade-off as you will lose bow lift and speed if you go too far but you will figure this out pretty quickly.
