Re: evinrude 150 rebs up weird

Based upon your video, there is nothing wrong with your engine.  It incorporates an RPM limiter which is active when the engine is in neutral.  The purpose of the limiter is to prevent excessive RPM with the engine unloaded.  It prevents doing what you were attempting to do in the video.

 

Put the boat in the water and enjoy it.
