1991 Evinrude Yachtwin 8hp

I have a 91 Evinrude Yachtwin 8hp tiller steer motor powering my 22' Pearson. I have not been able to obtain the manual for it yet, and I was wondering if anyone had any experience with these particular motors. Particularly the knob at the end of the tiller.....Any ideas of what it exactly does? I'd really appreciate any help possible.
Thanks so much,
C

I have an 87 Evinrude and the knob on the end of the tiller seems to adjust idle speed.

It may effect it, but it's main purpose is to adjust the resistance of the throttle. If you loosen it the throttle should be easier to turn, and if you tighten it there should be more resistance.

It has been a while, but that is my recollection of how it worked.

Thank you both. I was curious if it was something more technical like enriching the mixture or something as I seemed to have issues yesterday when approaching the dock. Upon starting, the engine revved heavily despite having the throttle lower. Then, as I finessed it a little it revved down, but when I put it into gear, it stalled out on me. It made for an interesting journey into my slip. If anyone has any thoughts of causes, I'm all ears.
