I have a 1958 Evinrude Fleetwin 7.5 HP that was running fine last year when I took it out of the water. When I fired it up this year it started fine, but I could not move the throttle control from the start position.

I pulled twist grip off to see if something was frozen up. Didn't appear to be. I then tried it with the twist grip only partially on. All the linkage worked just fine then. When I put it back on far enough to reinstall the set screw and spring it once again wouldn't turn. This has me baffled.
