have a 1999 40 hp  e-tec.  in gear trying to get on plane,  it surges like the rev limiter is kicking in.  replaced fuel,  plugs,  fuel filter.  this started right after we replaced the fuel line coming off the filter.  it had a slice in it.  any ideas?   thanks

You will not have a 1999 model 40HP E-TEC so best to post the model number.

The 40 suzuki is a pretty reliable engine. It has a few issues like all outboards but generally it is ok.
go to the bbc boards under the Evinrude Johnson forum for help.
