Okay when i try to shift into forward on the binnacle the motor just revs into and then all of a sudden slams into forward and speeds off. Its not that big of a problem but it bothers me.

I have a 1992 johnson 40hp if that helps any?

ANy suggestions?

Check if they r bad first. Unclip them from where they hook up under the hood on the motor, then shift the control box to forward-neutral-reverse. If it is smooth, the cables r good if still hard, u need new cables

It will become a problem, you will end up having to replace the Cluch Dog and Fwr Gear in your lower unit.

I agreed with Bad/improperly adjusted shift/throttle cables. Your unit is shifting into gear to late.
