im trying to find out a problem on my 1982 115hp evinrude whenever i rev it to a certain point and come back into nuteral on the bimini control every thing comes back like it supposed to but it stays in forward until 20 seconds or so and comes back to nuteral so i was wondering if yall can tell me why it takes so long for it to come back into nuteral

try to pull it back just a bit and see if it gos right in to nuteral it sounds like the cable is a bit stretched u can take up the slack at the motor on the adjustment on the cable but not much if this dosnt work its time for new cables

you might have electric shift on that bad boy. I dont see how a mechanical cable could possibly delay dis engagement by 20 seconds.. It would either work or it woudlnt.. I dont know anything about the electric shifts but I do know some early 80 johnsons had it..

Probably a simple cable adjustment. Remove the cowl and adjust the shift cable barrel a few turns. Basic mechanics, nothing complicated.
Good luck
