Hi Guys,

Boat has been sitting for 3 months without running.
Boat is 99% of the time used in Salt water.
I've started it for the first time the other day and it went straight to rev limiter.
I've pulled apart the throttle assembly, cable is fine.
But the part the cable attaches to on the carb is completely seized.
I've managed to force it to closed and back to open, but it won't spring back from wide open.

The bolt retaining the carbs are seized on and will require a lot of work to remove the carbs.

Has anyone had this happen before, how to I go about about fixing it?

I've got average mechanical skills from working on cars.
