sounds like carb problem ! In reverse throttle will not open 100 % . If you gradually advance the throttle in forward ( Under load ) you will probably hit a point where RPMs will start dropping . Jets not feeding properly . Best of luck .

Exactly what Dreamin said. I had 1999 50 HP Johnson. I was trying all different kinds of things to correct the problem and ending up blowing the power head. I would absolutely not run it anymore until the carbs have been cleaned. If you restrict fuel, you also restrict oil, then you melt her down.
